O.K. So I’m being a little anal tonite.
I’ve used EZCD in the past with mixed results. Never burned a coaster with it, but had an occasional application error with it (usually when I did too many mouse clicks on the SoundStream portion).
I’ve had to do a clean install (Windows XP Pro) on one system, and now it’s time to install the CD burning software. I have access to both Nero 188.8.131.52 and EZCD 5.1 (with the 5.3 SP4 patch).
What I like about EZCD - Better/easier at retrieving audio CD info from the internet (via CDDB); easier to “rip” CD audio (using soundstream); Direct CD (it’s the only program that allows me to run Windows Backup and directly write to a CD)
What I hate about EZCD - :Z Potential for instability; Roxio slow at acknowledging problems and providing fixes
What I like about Nero - Stable, stable stable
Wht I hate about Nero - :Z Figuring out how to do some things (like even rip a CD or retrieve audio CD info from FreeDB) takes at least an MBA
Now…for this old Jedi who’s battled one to many Sith masters and learners this week - whadayathink? Is EZCD that bad? Should I stear clear, suck it up, and go with Nero? or…go with EZCD?
