Hi all, I just purchased my first DVD R/W, and I don't know anything about the media that's available out there, like who is good, who to stay away from, can you please help me out here.

On another note, I purchased Nero suite 6.0, downloaded DVD Shrink, and when I receive the Nero I will download the update that's available for it. My question is...do any of you have any tips/suggestions for a newbe burner?

I appreciate your help. dc3

I created sevearl drink coaster while burning my first cds. When making a bootable or:autorun" disk be sure NOT to put them inside of a folder on the cd. This is true for .iso images also. Windows cannot see inside of the folder to boot. So the boot or autorun files need to be the first think on the disk.
