Not into burning DVDs yet, but still have the need for CD-R/RW's and watching movies on the PC. I don't really care too much for MS Media Player., but I didn't even get a CD with Nero Express or somthing like it.
So I look to Neros website and GEE there it is, Nero 6.6 for $99.99. Twice what I paid for the drive. I don't have that kind of money to spent on a single piece of software, that will need to be upgraded in 6 months.
What happened to cheap, good software. Or a Nero retail just for burning
Most drives do come with at least basic software. I guess you bought an OEM drive instead of retail version? Some OEM drives come with software, but not all. You really have to watch when buying OEM stuff. Sometimes you get the same as retail without the fancy box and sometimes you only get the raw component without anything else.
