1 review about Nero Move It

Awful product. Exceptionally poor design.

I bought this some time ago, installed it, found it difficult to use and set it aside for a few months. Came across it the other day and decided to give it another try. One word suffices to describe every aspect of this product: awful.

When reinstalling it, the installer warned me that I had exceeded the number of installs allowed. Excuse me? This was the second time I installed it on the same machine. Fortunately, Nero allows you to tell its guardian that it is a reinstall. Why isn't the software intelligent enough to recognize that it is being installed on the same machine?

Next, I learned something I should have spotted before I purchased this product: it only works with certain devices. Nero claims that Move It will recognize your device automatically and set everything up for transfers, making it oh so simple for the end user. Nero claims to support 150 devices. You cannot actually add a device unsupported by Nero. Well, look at the list of devices Nero support: it reads like a roster of dead technology, of devices that have gone to the great beyond.

Do you have a Nokia N800, a two year old device? Not recognized by Nero. How about the year old HP Ipaq 211? Not recognized by Nero. Or let's take the Sansa View, which has exactly the same requirements as the SanDisk Sansa Fuze, which is recognized. Well, the view - despite its identical requirements - is not recognized.

Allegedly you can create parameters for an unlisted device, but try as I might, I could not do it. I did find one way of dealing with transferring to other devices not on Nero's list of museum pieces if they have removable SD, microSDHC or CF cards. You can set the user settings to recognize those devices, though the process is somewhat convoluted. Not that it will necessarily do you a lot of good. Nero Move It's video formats are quite restrictive and won't work with devices like the Nokia N800.

The approach Nero has taken is just plain dumb. Making it difficult, if not impossible, to define devices not on Nero's list of antiques (for the most) part is beyond dumb.

I've used Nero itself for a long time. I've skipped upgrading it because of the many poor reviews to be found on Amazon.

Nero Move It, judging from the number of Amazon reviews, is selling poorly - and frankly I can understand why: it is just plain awful. If I were given to such things, there are a couple of four-letter words I could use to accurately describe this product.

Lots of other alternatives out there: I suggest you use them.
