The following entries are available in the combo box:
Creates a data CD/DVD. Any file type can be burned. The burned data complies with the ISO standard.
Creates a standard audio CD that can be played on all (audio) CD players at least.
Mixed Mode CD
Creates a CD with data and audio files in a single session. Usually a data file is followed by one or more audio files for instance (e.g. soundtrack for PC games).
Older Audio CD players are often not capable of recognizing the data file as such and attempt to play it.
Creates a multisession CD with audio and data files that are stored in two sessions. The first session contains the audio files and the second session the data.
Common CD players play the first session as audio CDs. The second session can only be used by PCs with a CD-ROM drive, it cannot be 'seen' by a normal CD player.
Copy CD/DVD/HD DVD/Blu-ray Disc
Copies a source disc to a CD/DVD/HD DVD/Blu-ray disc (see Copying).
Creates a CD that can play video and/or picture files on almost all VCD and DVD players.
When burning the Video CD (VCD), Nero Burning ROM automatically converts the files into the MPEG-1 format required by the video CD.
Super Video CD
Creates a CD that can play video and/or picture files on almost all SVCD and DVD players. The resolution is higher than with the VCD, and so the quality of the picture is usually better.
When burning the Super Video CD (SVCD), Nero Burning ROM uses the DVD video plug-in to automatically convert the files to the MPEG-2 format required by the Super Video CD.
Creates a CD that uses the specifications of a DVD. The miniDVD has the same technical options and qualities as a DVD. It can easily be played on a PC, whereas there is no guarantee that it can be played in all DVD players.
You can use Nero Burning ROM to burn a miniDVD if the DVD video title, i.e. a complete DVD folder structure, is already available. However, if you want to convert video files to a DVD video title, you can do so with Nero Vision but not with Nero Burning ROM.
Creates a bootable CD (see Bootable Disc).
CD/DVD-ROM/HD DVD/Blu-ray Disc (UDF)
Creates a data disc. Any file type can be burned. The burned data complies with the UDF standard.
