Nero Burning ROM, commonly called Nero, is an optical disc authoring program for Microsoft Windows by Nero AG (formerly Ahead Software) located in Germany.

Versions 6 to 9 were a part of Nero Multimedia Suite. As of version 10, Nero Burning Rom is available as a stand-alone product. Nero Linux is the Linux version.

The program's name is confirmed to be a play on words, as it looks like "Nero Burning Rome" (see Great Fire of Rome) and more so when translated to other Latin and Germanic languages.

Version 5.5 was a major update. New features included Nero Wave Editor, Advanced Nero Cover Designer, Nero MPEG1 Video Encoder, VCD/SVCD Menu Creation, Audio Plug-In Interface, Embedded Nero API (Application Program Interface), Nero Toolkit.
