I have an older Nero and was thinking about buying an updated version. But I see a lot of free ones too.

Here are my main uses for having a CD software-

It would be helpful for ISO to CD creation but Windows has that built in, if needed.

Burn CD's or DVD's

Convert flac files to mp3 (Lame)

Would like an editor to take a single audio or video track and split it into tracks.

Thanks

I haven't burned CDs and DVDs in a long time. I prefer to save my data/audio/video on sd and micro sd cards. Backups on USB sticks.
1. In Windows 7, I right click any ISO and I can burn it.
(I usually just "burn" live linux so that is put onto a USB stick. I think I may have burned a Win 7 ISO as a recue DVD, if needed.)
2. VLC can convert flac to mp3

If you want the mp3 files on a CD to play in a car, I find it easier to save and burn as a data CD because more files can fit on the CD. I have a Christmas CD that has 32 tracks on it.

3. The last time I played with editing audio tracks was a few years back when I attached a Sony walkman to a computer and used Audacity to save the tracks as wav or mp3 files. I didn't make 1 long track. I suspect Audacity would allow you to split an audio track.

The only thing I did was cut off the silence at the beginning and the end of a track.

Typically what I do is save the mp3s to folders I create for each artist. The I either to listen on the phone or at home. I don't burn nearly as much as I used to.

My mistake you need to be signed in so download Ashampoo Music studio 2018 from this link
https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/fdl I've just tried it and you can convert flac files to mp3 wether its lame or not that I don't know.

I went there and downloaded , like before, Music Studio 2018. After the partial install I had to go to the website to enter my entail to get a key. I never get a key back after 3-4 times. Checked every folder possible including inbox and spam. In the end I downloaded Music Studio &, but it has a 10 day trial.

I don't know why then I use a lot of their software and got a key from them yesterday for that program. It must be one of those internet anomalies (n)
