Hi all.

I am looking to burn a few dvd's and am currently looking for some good programs to use.
I watch all dvd's on a small analogue tv and my pc, no big plasma or hd tv's. No wide screens either.
Quality means alot to me, but my tv and pc are small so quality shouldn't really be too different, no matter how I burn?

Im looking for easy programs to use, that give good quality dvd's.
I only keep 5.1 sound English, English subtitles. I delete all extras and everything else, so obviously the program I need has to have that ability.
The program does not have to be 1 click, and I can use a combination of many programs, aslong as they are easy to use.

I use verbatim dvd-r media and my dvd burner is a liteon. My pc is an amd athlon dual core and I have xp installed.

Also another question, does surfing the net or watching youtube videos while burning/ripping have any adverse affects on the dvd quality?

Can you recomend me a program to use? Which one do you use? Free programs would be prefered but if their are no good ones I will have to buy software.

Which programs do you use to give you best quality?

I really enjoy using WinX DVD, and it's free, and surprisingly fast. (http://www.winxdvd.com/dvd-author/trialpay.htm). I had another free program (can't remember which one) and for some reason the finished product had severe quality issues. As the movie played the audio and video became seriously out of sync.

As to the question of surfing the net, or worse watching videos, that should be strictly verboten, IMHO. Your computer need every ounce of CPU processing power and every byte of RAM that you have for the task at hand. Maybe you could wipe the dust off of your Playstation and settle in for a couple of hours of gaming. Good Luck!

EDIT: There is no need to quote the entire OP verbatim...TY

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

This one seems to be popular: http://www.afterdawn.com/software/cdr_soft...ols/imgburn.cfm

Not good to run other things while burning a dvd.

I'll second, ImgBurn.
It's always best to download a program, directly from the developer website, if possible.
