The reason i didn't name the programs I have used is because there are so many: Nero, Roxio, DVD Flick, ImgBurn, DVD Video Soft, CD Burner XP, and countless others trying many different settings. Some have been better than others, but none that I can count on getting a good burn from every time. Several of these my 2 different DVD players won't even recognize and play. Many times movies will start out o.k. but about 1 hour into it (give or take) It will start stalling and freezing and become impossible to finish the movie. Very frustrating!! I can't believe the typical experience is like mine or not many would continue to try to burn their own disks!
