DVD writing software

  mikeyb59 15:34 14 Oct 03

Hi all. Have just installed a Pioneer DVD writer in my pc. As the drive was OEM there is no software with it.

Can anyone suggest good (preferably free) software that can be used with it?

Alternatively, don't mind paying for any HIGHLY recommended program.

TIA, Mike

Do you mean DVD authoring or just DVD burning. There's a difference. I'm not sure about the latest version of Nero, but 5.5 only allowed for Burning and not authoring of DVD titles... the difference is that if you're wanting to make a video DVD, you'll need to create the necesary VOB files etc to make the thing playable in a standalone player. Nero 5.5 didn't do this. The best app out of many I've used to author and burn a DVD is sonic DVDit.

Thanks to all. Been a little busy to get back here earlier.

As a complete novice I have purchased Roxio's Easy CD & DVD Creator 6. Seems it will do most that I require. I have no interest in copying commercial DVD's so hopefully I am sorted.

Will leave this thread open a little longer in case of any more suggestions.

Time to go and play!!!

Hi mikeyb59, I don't think you will go far wrong with Roxio's V6 I've been using this program for quite a few months. I use it mainly for my photography (archiving mainly) but have also produced some impressive DVD slideshows.
