When I was asked to review Nero 6 Ultra edition, I thought - what a great idea. With all of the media integration happening in today's digital media-drive market, it's a no-brainer that consumers are going to quickly get to the point where they want to do more with their CDs and DVDs beyond simple data storage options presented by the Windows operating system. Reviewing a suite of software tools is not an easy task. For reasons that are obvious, I can only summarize some of the key features and applications contained within Ahead Software's flagship all-in-one CD/DVD media application. The best way to cover this Swiss army knife of software is to go through some of the key applications one by one and try to give a clear picture of just what this compilation of programs can do.
