Even though there are several similar applications, many people still rely on Nero, because it is one of the most capable applications in its field.
Note: You can’t install Nero BurnLite on Windows XP SP2; it requires Windows XP 3, Vista or Windows 7.
Moreover, the free version comes bundled with unnecessary Ask browser Toolbar, which is pre-checked, so take care while installing.
As I said it is a restricted version, additional features and functionality are available with an upgrade to Nero Burning ROM or Nero Multimedia Suite 10.
You can free download NeroBurnLite at source.
