    Hi Guys,
    Just bought myself a lovely new dual-layer DVD writer, only to find there was no burning software included.
    My current version of Nero won't burn DVD's full stop, nevermind dual-layer, so my question is this:

    Which CD/DVD burning software do people use/recommend?

    It always used to be Nero for me but burning 'suites' now seem to come with add-ons, additional programs etc, are there any simple little burning utilities left? All I ever burn is data from my comp to discs for backup or declutering my HDD, so I have no need for all the extra gubbins you get with, say Nero 7 or Movie Factory etc etc etc
    Cheers! :D

    Why not upgrade your Nero? That would be the cheapest route.

    The current Nero comes with wizards for most popular uses.

    My current Nero came free with my last drive, think it's just the demo version.

    I'm pretty sure I was going to end up buying/downloading Nero 7 from Ahead, just wondering if there was anything else out there really.

    If you got Nero with a previous drive then you *can* upgrade it at a cheaper price than buying it new. Ahead have special prices for people with OEM versions, which is what yours was.

    Incidentaly - the OEM versions are tied to a particular drive, which is why it won't work on your new drive.

    Cheers Farmer, I'll look that up.


    Fair enough, didn't realise that.
    Think I'll go for the trial of Nero 7 & see if I fancy buying it after that.
    Cheers for the advice Harry.
