If you want to burn something on a CD/DVD, play a movie or create a personal photo book then the most obvious choice would be to use Nero 11. No matter what kind of data you want to burn, audio CDs, data DVD and so on, Nero 11 Burning ROM is always there to help you backup or share your files.
For a long while now, Nero Burning ROM has been the best resource available out there which you can use to create your own data DVDs. The latest version of the software comes packed with a lot of applications which will help you create, edit and burn your pictures, videos or other random files. With the help of built-in software like Nero Video you can edit videos shot on your holiday or with Nero BackItUp you can protect yourself from data loses. All of these features were designed to have everything in one place so that you will not have to go back and forth from one application to another, when you want to create your holiday DVD.
Obviously, the most popular application in the suite from Ahead is Nero 11 Burning ROM, which allows you to copy or burn all sorts of disks like CDs, DVDs or HD DVDs. Sure, there are a lot of alternatives to this particular burning software but none of them offer the same level of burning customization. Moreover, this application in Nero 11 suite comes bundled with other tools to help you create that perfect CD/DVD. Among them we can mention a built-in recorder, an encoder or a tool that allows you to explore discs create with this or other software.
While the DVD burning application from the suite may seem a bit tricky to beginners, but it’s actually quite easy to use once you get the hang of it. If we had to analyze the advantages of this software over its competition, I would have to mention the fact that it is lite on system resources, that it supports various disk formats and that it comes with quite a lot of burning options.
Getting back to the main subject of this guide, where exactly is the Nero 11 serial number or cd key, I have to mention that it is still in your computer registry if you did not reinstall your operating system. As long as you do not overwrite the main system files, this kind of data can be easily recovered with the help of some dedicated software or by manually searching for the lost code.
Anyway, I am going to explain you below the two methods which you can use to recover the data which you lost. The first method requires you to install any of the below recovery applications, which will then scan your computer for every software that you currently have installed or had it installed in the past. You can choose to install only one or both of the applications but I have to mention that they have the same purpose.
Now that you’ve managed to download and install the recovery software, you will have to run the one you chose and allow it to go through your Windows Registry in your computer. After a while it will return you a list of programs that are on your computer and their corresponding details like the code used to install it. What you have to do is to browse through all the entries there and when you see the Ahead Nero 11 line click on it. On the right side of the window you should be able to read details for the software like the serial number or cd key. To make sure that you won’t face a similar situation in the future, it would be good to write it down on a piece of paper or print it out.
The second method which you can use to recover the code used to install the application involves the built-in Registry editor from Window. Please proceed with this step only if you have done it in the past as you could damage your computer if you modify something.
Now, to open the editor you must type in the search box from the start menu the following command – regedit and then press enter. When the registry editor opens, you should look for the following folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and expand it. From there on, you should be searching for another folder called SOFTWARE which must also be opened. You must then browse its content and when you find the Ahead folder, click on it. On the right side of the registry editor you will be able to see the serial number or CD key for Nero 11.
