First, let me apologize for the newbie question. I searched a bit of the forum but couldn't find what I was looking for.
Second, I'm pretty much a simpleton when it comes to CD-R(W). I have an HP8100 4x and Adaptec EZCD v4 and I'm very happy with the combo. I just ordered a Cendyne (LiteOn) 24x using cdfreaks as my guide (thanks!).
My question is this: With the LiteOn, I'm going to use CloneCD for all my "tricky" burning. But what is the best software proggie for the "day-to-day" burning? I like that Adeptec (Roxio) can decode MP3s on the fly when creating mix CDs for the car and that it is incredibly easy to use. If, on a "day-to-day" basis, I just primarily use the burner for creating mix CDs for my car (MP3 to wav burning), what it is the best software to go with? I heard that the newest Roxio software has some possible issues with the LiteOn drive. Is this true?
The new Roxio software is quite expensive. Can I find other software with about the same features for a Shareware or Freeware price?
Once again, sorry for the newbie question.
PS I got the Cendyne drive at officemax.com for $92 incl. tax and shipped ($72 after mail-in rebate) using a "first-time buyers" coupon. If anyone is interested in a deal on the LiteOn, I think that's about the best you can do right now...
