I had to replace my older computer with one with Win8.1...just getting used to it. Seems pretty good so far.\n\nI had Nero on my old XP and went to Softpedia and downloaded Nero-9-Free. I would have expected a small 'exe' file but it downloaded a large 54mb file.\n\nI guess this is the whole installation program instead of a small 'exe' one using the internet for the installation files.\n\nDoes this sound right? I have not run it as of yet.\n\nOn the Softpedia site, there are many dozens of burners listed, most of them unknown to me. Nero is the only one I am familiar with. I am sure there are other fine ones unknown to me.\n\nIf there are not any reservation on the large 54mb file, I probably ill run it.\n\nThere is a burner with Win8.1 but it is pretty lame and not easy to use.\n\nRegards,\n\nDave C.
