Burning via NeroCMD.exe with encryption.

Hi everyone, does anyone tried to burn a cd/dvd using nerocmd.exe commands with encryption in Nero Burning ROM 2018?

Basically, I would like to burn a disk with 256bit AES encryption, decrypt it and extract to a specific folder path by just using NeroCMD.exe.

Is it possible to do so?

  • I don't know anybody in this forum who has significant experience with Nerocmd. There used to be a sub-forum on it in the old forum but we don't have access to it anymore.

    Since you have v2018, you might get some help from tech support on it by going here-

  • I realize this is an old thread, but maybe describing our method will be helpful.

    We are currently using Nero 2016; for 95-99% of our disc-writing, we use NeroCmd running from a CMD script - it works and we've had no reason to upgrade Nero.

    Our method is a two-step process:

    1. Encrypt the data to be written using an open source encryption tool (AES Crypt).
    - We have a "wrapper" program that encrypts all the subdirectories of a directory in parallel
    - The unencrypted files are read from the source directory tree and the encrypted ones written to a temporary directory tree (same structure as the source)

    2. Change to the temporary directory and execute the CMD script
    - The CMD script collects and verifies some project-specific options and translates them to NeroCmd options when necessary (drive name, disc format [BD vs DVD], disc label, etc.)
    - Then it executes NeroCmd using the options and * for the files; since we specify --recursive, this writes all the files in the top-level directory and all its subdirectories.

    When reading/decrypting the disc, we first execute a recursive copy command to read from the disc and write to a temp directory tree on a hard drive. Then we run the encryption tool to decrypt the temp directory tree to the destination (again using the wrapper program to parallelize the task).

    The actual software is more complex (e.g., involves Bash scripts, the parallel-processing programs, etc.), but that's the gist of it. Although we have 2 parts, it's easy enough to bundle them into encrypt/write and copy/decrypt scripts; this allows your choice of encryption tool.
