nero 3 for linux is definately not worth the cash when K3B kicks its butt, nut nero linux 6 would be awesome if Ahead released it.

I have nero 6 for windows and im going to have a go at running it in WIne, ya never know your luck.

Anyone had success with version 6 in wine version 1 and above at all??

I remember getting those Update ASPI driver messages when I used to run Windows. Honestly, between K3B and Brasero, I've never had a need or want to run Nero again.

i dont get any error messages at all.

but it wont recognise my drive. i know nero works with the drive cos i had xp on this machine and nero ran with it just fine.

im probably wasting my time, but its a challenge

I don't use Windows, but may I ask what it is about Nero 6 that you like?
Are there features in it, which are not available in a Linux application?

Nero 6 for Windows leaves Nero 3 for Linux in the dust.

Nero 3 has been "majorly chopped down"
Nero 6 has some very cool features like Nero Vision - a very cool front end to make dvds with and you can feed pretyt much what ever videos you like in to it and it will recode it all and make it fit on a dvd.. magic bit of gear

Nero media player is a bit of so-so

It has other tools like a built in cd cover desginer, sound editor, the ability to convert Lp (vinyl records) to cd, Nero backup (not the worlds greatest backup but still quite useable) if they really wantd to do this

i just find it *extremely* dissapointing that "Ahead" advertisise on their web site
http://www.nero.com/eng/linux3.html

and i quote

Experience the most comprehensive burning application for the Linux OS


if they really wantd to do thisthey would at least sell Nero 6. i would glady buy it and save myself the frustration of trying to make it run in wine.

if you have a read thru this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nero_Burning_ROM

you will see the Nero Linux 3 is very basic infact about as basic is nero 3 for windows was when it first came out.

It really amazes me that a company would relase a flagship product like this for Linux that is very much behind the 8ball of its current verison for windows.

Its almost as if we who use Linux are second class citizens and dont desverve decent software.
I only hope and pray Ahead come to their senses and release a decent version and when they do i will gladly hand over the cash to purchase a copy of it for Linux

thanks for that. it runs. and burns to a disc.... but it wont automatically finish burning for you.
it says it has finished burning to the disc, but the light wont shut off.
http://infrarecorder.sourceforge.net/

however i did press the cancel button at the end at i have verified all the files are written correctly though


i wont stress over it much.
i have also tried frogaspi as a replacement for the wnaspi32.dll file and no luck either.
oh well.
