Today I did a fresh Windows install and discovered Nero 6 updates downloads are no longer available. They want you to pay $13 for the updates on a CD, and I only paid $5 for my original Nero 6 on CD. Does anybody know if there's an archive of the latest Nero 6 update anywhere? I don't want to get Nero 7, 8 or 9 because I think they are too bloated. Nero 6 is less than 40MB while Nero 7 approaches 200MB and latest Nero 9 approaches 400MB which isn't much less than WinXP!

Sort of a question to all, as I'm just curious - if I was to use, say, v5, would it recognize more recent drives (for ordinary data disc burning, not any features you might find in the newer versions of Nero like Lightscribe, or whatever), or would I end up having to use the newer versions, anyway?If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
I wouldn't expect drive recognition to be an issue (for CD and DVD support). It could possibly be an issue for Blu-ray support. Mostly it would just be what features are available.
And to be honest. I recall downloading the latest available updates awhile back after v7 came out, and just never went back to check on any further updates. I don't need to update as it does everything I need it to do. So in that sense, you guys are right, don't fix what ain't broken.Google is your Friend
There are probably fixes in the most recent updates that fixes issues that may not affect most Nero uses, but I think it's a good idea to do the updates just in case. Not doing software updates is like saying "Why do Windows updates if the PC is working without problems?" Do you have the latest firmware for you DVD burner? Most people probably do. If the updates cause problems, simply save your oder version or download it from 1 of the suggested sites for the various firmware versions if you don't have it saved. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure as the old saying goes.
As stated in my original post Nero 9 is close to 400MB which is a little over 10 times the size of Nero 6. IMO later Nero versions are just too bloated which is why I have avoided them. The latest Nero 6 update I found solves my problem quite nicely.

Maybe the later versions are bad. I don't care. This works for me.valvehead//
A few years ago ... I bought Nero 7 ... and I was using Nero 6 and its updates .... Nero 7 for me works fine ... as for bloated ... ah ... hmmm ... maybe ... but Nero 8 and 9 are a lot worse.
As for burning programs ... I also use
CyberLink Power2Go 6
DVD Rebuilder PRO
DVD Shrink 3.2
Nero Burning ROM 8 Lite ... with Nero Express
CyberLink PowerDVD Copy v1.0.0625 Final
Only one in that list that I dont use regularly ... DVD Shrink
Actually ... Nero 7 ... is not installed ... But Nero Express 8 Lite ... is installed ... I use it regularly to burn avi Divx videos on DVDs to watch on my Philipps DVD/Divx player in my bedroom ... My wife and I have been doing Buffy the Vampire Slayer ... we recently obtained all 7 Seasons ... she got hooked when watching ... Angel on Directv ... she kept hearing about Buffy on Angel ... so I introduced her to ... Buffy the Vampire Slayer ... LOL
I've been using v126.96.36.199 for many years with no problems, having burned over 200 DVD's and 100 CD's. Just for fun, I updated to v188.8.131.52 to see what difference there was. One thing I'm wondering about -- there is no AUDIO_TS folder. I believe the older versions had this folder burned along with the VIDEO_TS folder for better compatibility with older DVD players, so does this mean that newer DVD players definitely don't need the AUDIO_TS folder?
