Read the full changelog Nero

Nero 8 Lite is a reduced package of the Nero 8 Suite that includes only a few components from the original full version. It includes the most popular CD/DVD processing utilities that Nero issues, thus offering a stripped down, but still usable pack for less pretentious users.

Nero 8 Lite intends to offer the same product value, while considerably reducing its features. This way, the application loads faster, and CDs/DVDs are burned at a higher speed rate.


Seamless installation and minimal GUI

The setup process is a breeze, as it does not offer you to download or add new products that are not actually necessary for the program to properly work and it is over in a jiffy.

After completing it, you are met with a pretty minimal and clean interface. It encloses a menu bar, several buttons and a few panes to display various information. As a consequence, both power and novice users can learn how to handle it, without encountering any issues.

Some of the tools incorporated and how you can use them

This program still encases a pretty significant amount of components, including Nero Burning Rom, Nero Express, Nero Cover Designer, Nero WaveEditor and Nero Toolkit (includes BurnRights, DiscSpeed, DriveSpeed and InfoTool). However, you should know it is possible to discard any of these utilities during the installation process, with just a click of the button.

Nero Burning Rom is, without a doubt, the most popular of all Nero products. It has become the industry standard for burning data and multimedia content to CDs and DVDs. All of your disc-related tasks can be achieved with this software, including menu design and encryption.

Covers can be created with Nero Cover Designer and audio files can be edited via WaveEditor. The BurnRights component allows users to burn CDs/DVDs without administrator rights and CD-ROM capabilities can be tested with the DiscSpeed or DriveSpeed applications. Nero InfoTool analyzes your system and displays information about installed drives and software, with just a few clicks.

Performance and conclusion

Compared to the full version, CPU usage is considerably decreased, the interface loads faster at startup and during tasks, resulting in improved performance. The basic set of features does not make it in any way less valuable.

Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say Nero 8 Lite is an efficient and reliable piece of software, dedicated to all types of users.
