i have been battling with burning CDs using a bundled version of Direct CD on Windows 2000. i am always having problems, and want to buy some better CD/CDR burning software.
i have been doing some online research, and have checked out Alcohol 120%, Nero etc.
it seems that (quite logically) all the latest versions of burning software include DVD burning option. I don’t need to burn DVDs - I just want to burn data/audio to CDs easily.
i would like to go for nero - but nero 7 is just too much functionality and cost for my requirements - in a way an earlier version would be more appropriate, but of course they are no longer available.
can anyone advise on some cheaper / less whizzy options for my simple needs?
thx in anticipation.
I don’t know if it will help, but check out http://bwgburn.sourceforge.net. I did not like the expense of doing something that I thought should be fairly straight forward and have launched this effort to provide a free alternative.
I have a ways to go for DVD, but CD/R and CD/RW work fairly well. I have not tried this with older drives (particularly those without burn proof), but if your drive has burn proof it works fairly well.
