There are really a lot of free CD burning applications available now (just check our freeware category for CD/DVD burners), yet some people still prefer the older outdated Nero 9 Free, the last freeware version of the Nero suite.
Nero has long been a leader in CD burning application software and users with older hardware can welcome this ad-supported version. It is basically a stripped down version of the popular Nero Burning ROM. Unfortunately with this version, it supports only CD and DVD discs and cannot burn DVD movies. Though it is able to create DVD clones.
Compared to DeepBurner or ImgBurn, Nero has virtually no special features. Additionally, Nero 9 Free does NOT support Blu-ray disc burning and therefore unsuitable for many modern setups.
Installation note: The installer of this program may offer to install third-party adware and change or modify browser settings such as homepage and default search engine.
Nero 9 Free is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from cd burner software without restrictions. Nero 9 Free 188.8.131.52d is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
Compatibility with this software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Nero.
We have tested Nero 9 Free 184.108.40.206d against malware with several different programs. Please review the test results. We have not certified this program as clean. [Read more]
