    Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the software section but here goes.

    I plan to purchase either a laptop or notebook which will have Windows 10 installed, I think it will be 64bit, but I am wanting to find out which version of Nero to use or be compatible with it. I currently use Nero Express 6 version 6.3.1.20 and I have a feeling that this won't be compatible with Windows 10.

    I have no problem purchasing the latest Nero software so I am looking for some help before I do.

    The desktop or laptop will definitely be 64bit as most are all coming with a 64bit cpu.
    As for Nero, you will need to buy either Nero 2015 or Nero 2016.

    On desktop it's 98se, on laptop it's windows 7 starter, however the laptop doesn't have a CD rom drive.

    I'm looking to buy a more up-to-date laptop or Notebook that does have a CD writable drive.

    might have a problem getting a laptop with a dvd drive internally as they are starting to phase them out. 3 customers with win 7 & 8 have laptops without dvd drives.

    Most of the laptops I've seen in the computer outlets all appear to have CD/DVD writable internal rom drives.

    I always think that you get reliable burns when performed on a desktop computer.

    sounds like you need a new desktop.lol.if nero 6 works on your windows 7 it should work on windows 10.its worth a shot if you are attached to nero.

    Looks like you haven't read all my posts on this thread, if you had you will have seen that I had said that windows 7 is on the laptop, which in turn doesn't have a rom drive.

    He said if Nero works on windows 7, why would I be using Nero Express on windows 7 as it's on the laptop that has no CD or DVD/RW drive.
