Tips

  • Many versions of Linux, including Knoppix, Ubuntu, and Klick, have ISO files that you can download. You can burn them onto a disk, and then run Linux from the disk on your home computer without damaging your files or changing anything.

Warnings

  • These directions are for the Windows XP SP3 operating system. Steps may be similar in Vista; They are likely to be different in MAC or Linux, if Nero works in those operating systems.
  • Nero 6.6 is not the latest version of Nero! It is likely that these steps are mostly right for other versions of Nero. If you have Nero 5, there is another guide in wikiHow that may be more helpful.

Things You'll Need

  • A CD or DVD Burner attached to your computer.
  • A copy of Nero 6.6
  • A blank CD or DVD.
  • An ISO file already on your hard drive.
