Nero 7 provides computer users with a software option that assists with burning a variety of mediums including audio, video and images on CD or DVD. Nero's burn settings give you the option to optimise the quality of your burnt product by giving you the ability to change selections based on the finished product you choose to create. Users can choose to create multiple discs or provide extra protection by performing tests to verify the burning process or check for viruses.

    Click on "Options" to define the Book Type settings. Click on "Automatic" to allow Nero to automatically select the most suitable book type. Click on "DVD-ROM" if creating a DVD that should play on multiple DVD players. Click on "Physical Disc Type" to allow Nero to choose whatever book type is specified on the DVD. Click on "Current Recorder Setting" to leave the book type set to the current recorder. Click "OK" to close this window.

    Check "Determine maximum speed" on the Burn Compilation window to determine how fast the files can be accessed. Check "Simulation" to simulate performing the steps carried out during burning and perform a test to determine the data flow. Check "Write" to enable the "Burn" button.

  9. 9
