First of all, I want to say that CD Freaks rocks! Club CD Freaks is what every Internet forum should be. You mods and regulars should be very proud of what you’ve created.
I’ve got a few basic software questions that I know you must have answered before, but I couldn’t find them with Search.
May I make a suggestion? You have a Newbie forum for CD-R FAQ’s. Why not set up a Newbie forum for DVD FAQ’s?
Here are my questions:
The main question: Is the bundled software that comes with the Retail Box version of most DVD burners worth the extra $20-30 over the OEM (burner only) version? From what I’ve read in PriceGrabber opinions, the bundled s/w isn’t very good. Typically, you get Sonic MyDVD, Cyberlink PowerDVD XP, Veritas RecordNOW DX, or WinDVD and Nero. You guys have used this software and I haven’t. What do you think of it? Which of these titles do you like and don’t like?
What DVD burning software do you recommend? I want to back-up my DVD-Video movies and back-up my hard drive. I already have InstantCopy, Decryptor, and Nero 184.108.40.206.
Thanks in advance to those who reply.
