Hi everyone

Can anyone recommend a good CD/DVD burner?

Will I be better off with a free downloadable version, or buy one from a shop?

I take it you mean software? If so, Nero is my favourite but I use DeepBurner at times too.

Try to get Nero 7 - it's good value and if you buy it with a hardware device, very cheap.

I have been using nero six reloaded for more than a year. It's great.

I agree with Nero 6 or higher. Great functionality and easy to use.

I have two copies of Suite 3 for 2 of my computers £6.87 plus postage each.

Although it says: "OEM software such as this is for sale only to system builders or can be sold in conjunction with associated hardware. (CD/DVD writer or hard drive)" I have never bought anything else with it.

Give them a try.

Once installed you can update it to the latest version from:

I had use Nero before, though when I had to install windows XP and reformatted the hard drive I lost it completely. And I cant reinstall Nero as it was already on the computer when I bought it 2nd hand, and no discs for it came with it.

And I did back it up onto a blank disc, though cant reinstall without a serial number

OK I have just looked up my Invoice for the last copy of Nero 6 Suite 3 I bought from SVP (18th November 2005) and the total was £8.23 that includes VAT and Postage.

Not a lot to ask for a reasonably up to date version of one of the best CD/DVD burning programs on the market. It comes with a serial number and can be updated to the latest version for free.

stalion, just read your post re. Emprex cd/dvd.

Checked it out here, click here
