Many tasks, such as creating an audio CD, can be performed with more than one program; therefore you can change the program assignment.

1. Click on the button on the left-hand side of the program window to expand the Nero

StartSmart window, if it is not already expanded.

2. Move the mouse pointer over the desired task and the application that will open when you click on the task appears on the left.

5.1.1 mp3PRO Plug-in (commercially available) *

The mp3PRO Plug-in is capable of creating files smaller than MP3 files with the same or better sound quality. For example, at 64 kBit/s, the new Codec promises near-CD quality, which is significantly better than MP3 at the same bit rate. You can continue to play back your old MP3 files normally on a new mp3PRO player. However, mp3PRO files played back on a new mp3PRO decoder of course offer the optimum sound quality. This plug-in gives you the opportunity to encode unlimited audio files in mp3PRO or MP3 format. For example, you can archive all your CDs on your hard disk.

For licensing reasons, we are only permitted to integrate test versions into Nero 6 Ultra

Edition . This gives you the chance to test out the encoder functions for a limited time. To activate the test version, you must purchase the corresponding encoder plug-in separately. You can do this at http://www.nero.com in the webshop. For a better user experience, the encoder is available separately only for those users who specifically want to utilize it, instead of adding this cost on for all users who may not want the encoder.

5.1.2 Updates (free downloads)

At http://www.nero.com, you will find regular updates for all programs, with new functions integrated and/or errors eliminated. You can either retrieve these updates via your Nero

ProductCenter or just look at the Nero website from time to time. In order to optimize the functionality of your programs, we recommend that you keep them up to date.
