Nero Burning ROM, which is often referred to simply as Nero for short, is an authoring program for optical discs such as CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays. It is integrated with other programs included in the Nero Multimedia Suite.
In its current incarnation, the software is available only for Windows. A Linux version of the application did at one point exist, having been introduced onto the market in 2005, but this was discontinued in 2012.
The application is designed to work with a number of media formats. In addition to CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, it is compatible with disk image files, AVCHD data discs, ISO/UDF data discs, bootable data discs and SecurDisc discs.

The current version of the suite also include tools for editing videos, converting video and audio files, converting discs for mobile playback, file organisation and browsing, recovering lost or damaged files, designing covers, recording and mixing music tracks, and handling administrative access.
