Still, it is worth looking for. It is possible I believe to install it without the association. Or if you've bought an external drive, maybe you didn't install Nero, but you may have the installation disc.

may try DVD Shrink. It's free, just search for it online. It handles CD/DVD

AFAIK DVD Shrink does not itself burn. It uses Nero. At work, where I do not have a copy of Nero that does DVDs, I use DVD Shrink to generate ISO files and then use DeepBurner to burn the ISOs.

I do use DVD Shrink a lot though, for shrinking DVDs. It's a great little program. :)
