I’m frustrated

Nero 8 Essentials and DVD related plug-ins GONE

I have Nero 8 Essentials and the three multi-channel DVD related plug-ins are no longer available and I purchased a full version of the product back in the day. It is now asking me to purchase these plug-ins when I've used them for years. Is there some way I can download them again without having to purchase them, essentially for a second time?

    I'm a little confused. You say you have v8 Essentials but you purcased a full version of the product back in the day. What product was that?

    I would assume that if you bought v8 on the update disc, that the plug-ins would be there and that you could use your plug-in serial number to use it. I think it would be best to ask customer service about it.

    Why not update to Nero 2014? You should get a good discount using your Essentials version. The only thing you would want to check is to see if your system meets the system requirements.

    I have, or at least HAD Nero 8 smart start essentials v 8.1.49. The program doesnt' recognize some mp3 files correctly when I attempt to burn them. Figured new codecs might be out. Downloaded the update I found in the archives. I accepted Wave Editor and it downloaded tunitup, 1 click optimization, and music recorder. But my Nero 8 disappeared.

    It said the computer would have to restart, Now I have a program called "Nero" but it is a "dashboard" only containing Wave Editor. Can';t find my program for burning cds anywhere (Win 7 Pro OS)

  • Note that v8 is not Win 7 compatible. That doesn't mean it won't run but there may be issues.

    Assuming you have a 64 bit system, go to

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Nero\Nero 8 (Use C:\Program Files\............ if you have a 32 bit system.

    All the files used to run the software is there.

    There should be a Nero StartSmart folder. If it's there, find the NeroStartSmart.exe file and run it.

    Does it work?

  • I’m HAPPY!
    Thank you so much for the help. I got it going later. I realized that it just didn't finish the installation after removing the old version. i simply went to the downloaded install program and relaunched it.

    All is well now, i performed a copy function and it worked flawlessly. It has run dependably 90% of the time before. Just certain files couldn't be copied and continue to work. i am hopeful this rectifies that.

    Thanks again!!

  • Great. Let me know if you still have problems with those "certain files."

    Enjoy!
