Which burner program for CD-R/RW newbie?

Postby swsnyder on Mon Dec 29, 2003 3:20 pm

What software is recommended for a newbie at burning CDs on a WinXP system?

I see a lot of references to Easy CD Creator and to Nero, but I'm not clear on why one would choose one over the other. Also, Nero seems to have a wide variety of products and I'm not sure which one is most appropriate for occasion burning.

Opinions/recommendations, please? Thanks.

Why not try the burn program that comes with WinXP?
Here are a few free apps:
www.burnatonce.com -Good
www.deepburner.com -Better
http://hem.bredband.net/cdburnerxp/ -Best

I personally like RecordNow: http://estore.sonic.com/enu/recordnow/recordnow.asp

Isn't that considered a form of blasphemy? :P

Go with nero 6.Versatile in every way.
I've never used XP's burn feature.I've never had to.I use Nero.Used Easy CD a few years ago but Nero is just better.Less bugs etc.......

Hi swsnyder,
If you are new to CD burning then go for Roxio EZCD.Too easy and it's very hard to go wrong with it.Nero also is very good,but I would say that 5.5 is the better version because Nero 6 has never worked for me.Nero offers a lots of burning features.But for a newbie get Roxio EZCD 6.
See ya guys later,

EZCDCreator is simple to use for music and data CDRs. Nero is easy to use for VCD/SVCD CDR burning. I haven't tried v6 yet. I'm still using
