[QUOTE=mciahel;2039023]Hi,why do you want to upgrade from Nero 6? […]
ImgBurn is at the moment the most advanced data/video burning tool. Most others, especially Ashampoo, are very basic lacking lots of configuration options. Have you tried the drag’n’drop method with ImgBurn?
Another free one: CDBurner XP Pro.[/QUOTE]
Nero is no longer supported, so it really doesn’t know about modern drives, althought that should not really be a problem. It’s also quite bulky, installing lots of stuff I don’t need. Since I’m doing a complete reinstall of one of my systems, I’ve been looking to replace a lot of tools (especially security tools) with better ones, preferably freeware, and if possible XP64 compatible, as that upgrade is planned for the latter half of the year.
IMGburn has indeed a lot of good features, supporting all versions of UDF etc, but the user interface is not really suited for burning files. The file window is too small and cannot be enlarged, the size calculation is annoying, a simple graph bar like Nero has is much more convenient. That’s really all that I can critisize it for, but since I burn lots of those DVDs, IMGburn would really slow me down.
I’ll have a look at CDburner XP Pro and Express Burn. Thanks for the tips!
Edit: Express Burn is payware, though affordable. I’ll look into it later, I prefer freeware now.
