Thanks for the reply. I tried PowerDVD, but the problem was the digital channel (I think it only works with a registered version of the software). Running the Creative sound fields through the external decoder doesn't really compare to DD/DTS (one complaint I have about T2 Extreme).
I really like these forums, I kept noticing how I'd get hits here when I'd Google questions, thought I'd register here and get to know how to do things right seeing as how I seem to be geeking out on it a bit.
EDIT: I have a grudge against Nero. When I was running a SCSI chain it rewrote the control, and when I uninstalled it I lost my data on all drives. I kept a back up of all my system stuff on an IDE drive, but lost all my multimedia. Plus, a lot of titles I'm backing up are protected. Thanks for the reply, I know a lot of friends really love Nero.
