I want to start learning about DVD burning/copying to safe guard my original copies. I dont know much about which are the best software packages available so can any one suggest a free DVD burner or free trial so I can have a try of it , then perhaps purchase a full version ?
Ahead, who produce Nero, update about once a month to include the latest burner models and add features or, maybe, fix minor bugs.
If you read the page it states clearly, as usual, that the latest version will be available soon - it doesn't preclude you from trying Nero or even sticking with the demo version if you decide to acquire it.
You are only likely to need a serial number if you decide to buy, otherwise the demo will time itself out after the trial period.
All that the serial number does, once you have made payment to obtain it, is cancel the timeout as well as enable you to update free each time the amended version is released.
If you go to the demo download page, as I have just done, you will find that the new version IS available for download. The link is top right.
