Does this version of Nero include the mp3 and mpeg codecs, or are they still an additional cost item?

It costs about the same to make a DVDR as it does to make a CDR... but the DVDRs are sold for more by the plants.... which one do you think the plants prefer to manufacture these days? :lol:
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R
