Black also for Mac – Macitynet.it
The German company Ahead Software, producer of "Nero", a well-known application for burning CDs, has confirmed to our editors some "rumors" that have been circulating in recent days: the application could be released soon also in Mac version. Not much information we managed to obtain but the Ahead PR staff confirmed that programmers are working on a first prototype of the application and that within a maximum of 1 or 2 weeks, they should be able to provide us all details.Nero was one of the first applications to provide the useful "Oversize disc" option which allows, in combination with certain burners, to burn CDs beyond the usual 650Mb (74 minutes of audio) normally allowed by all other programs. and one of the few PC applications that allows you to create CD-ROMs also in HFS format for Mac. Another interesting feature is the so-called "CD Te xt ": if this feature supported by the recorder, the titles of the audio tracks and the name of the artist can be written directly on the CD. This information can be read later from CD-ROMs or from normal audio CDs that provide this option / Nero's look & fell in any case light years away from the simplicity of Toast for Mac and similar to other PC burning products (e.g. Easy CD Creator or others), a feature that Mac users may not like "spoiled" by the simplicity of Toast or CharisMac….
