The problem I am having is, I'm trying to figure out which DVD burning software is the best to use. We use Win 98, which might be a bit of an issue. We figure to burn a few movies with it, but mostly I'll be using it for data backups, and maybe audio CD's. I like the drag-and-drop type interface, and I need it to be good with burning CD's too. I'd like to have one, also, that does RW's without too much trouble.

I only have limited experience with burning.

:thumbsup:

Thanks.

I personally like Nero Express. Once you get this topic going you will find as many good answers as people repling. What are your system specs? CPU, amount of RAM, hard drive size,..?

I am pretty boring...I use whatever software comes with the burner that I purchased. :thumbsup:

Right now, I am using Nero as it was bundled with my Sony External DVD burner. I also use Easy CD creator at work. I have never really had any issue with either of them.

What software is bundled with your burner?

My computer is really nothing to get excited about. AMD 1GHz, 256 MB RAM, 2 HD's: 40GB + 30GB. :thumbsup:

The software that came with my burner (actually, I inherited it) is "Sonic DLA" something or other. I'm really not impressed by it at all. :flowers:

Hi

http://www.videohelp.com is a good place to start.

Google for 'freeware windows 98 burning software'

I use Nero and it works great on XP Pro.

I agree, Natasha. Sonic DLA stinks, and I'm running on Win XP! My cd burner is currently on the blink, but if I get it working again, I'll probably get a new program. Now, this Nero program....is it free? Or if not, how much? I'm a poor college student, and can't afford to spend too much.

In my opionon Nero is probably the best burning package available. I've had absolutely no problems burning anytype of cd or dvd with Nero. I've also used Easy CD Creater which I personally didn't like. I've also used CloneCD which is great if you are backing up games and the such. You can download a free trial of Nero at nero.com

Hi

Totally agree with above. A good free one I just tried is CDburner XP Pro from http://www.cdburnerxp.se/download.php and others.
