Older version of nero burning rom

some time ago a friend installed nero v8.3.2.1b on one of my PCs. This performed an upgrade to a later version after starting but I can't remember the newer version number. I recently purchased Nero 14 via Cleverbrige though your web site. but have found it's look and feel very different to what I was used to. I would like to purchase a copy of the version that the v8.3.2.1b upgraded to. please advise.

    Hi Andy-

    Yep, things have changed in the last 6 years. Many of them for the better.

    The last installer version of v8 is 8.3.20.0.

    If you have a purchased serial number, you can go to nero.com, downloads, previous product downloads and purchase the v8 update (which is the full program) disc.

    I don't know what you have. Normally, if a person gives a version of Nero to someone else and it was a purchased version, then Nero Customer Service would have to get involved because you can only activate the patents for .mpeg-4, .m2ts and .mts on a single computer using one serial number.

    Are you able to burn those formats? If not, you have an Essentials version so buying the disc wouldn't help. It might allow you to update your Essentials version but it will still be an Essentials version.

    Honestly, I think you should get used to v14. The biggest advantage for v8 is that ShowTime has more playback controls than Nero MediaHome and Backitup has more options. You can have both versions installed in parallel.

  • Hi Wither 1
    Many thanks for your response. I haven't got any record of a purchased serial number and I'm starting to suspect my friend won't either. I've already removed it from my machine prior to installing v14 as I didn't want any possible clashes to affect the installation. So, if I can't buy a copy of v8.3.20.0 I'll persevere with v14 !
