    Are your burned dvds comming out substantially worse than the source material?

    If so, you may want to invest the time to read guides on Doom9 or VCDHelp to learn how to use free software and tweak your conversions for the best quality possible.

    ?

    What came with the burner ?
    Hardware makers recommend what they include with it.
    Don't buy oem Optical drives.
    I'm happy when it's Nero.It came with my Sony Dual Layer DVD+-RW.
    I use Nero Express but just getting started with DVD burning.
    My CD-r's videos copy ok.My I'st movie dvd was ok.

    I have 2 oem necs work great
    why pay for bloated unuseable software bundled with the drive

    don't mention what your burning
    data disc or authoring dvd movies
    deep burner is free and very good
    if authering use dvdlab pro
    if making movies or changing format use nero or mainconcept
    to make a svcd or dvd mpg then use dvdlab pro to author

    My Nero 6 is very useable

    Thats why i bought a Sony with Nero included.
    Raffizzz asked for opinions,thats mine.
    I like the Express option.

    Try CDBurnerXP Pro... It's free, EXTREMELY easy to use, is NOT bloated, and it burns with quality in mind.

    I've been told that CloneDVD is actually the best.
    Any suggestions?

    One more comment.Most cd and dvd rom drives include burning software
    like Nero and recommend you use it or what came with the drive.
    If you got no software cd i recommend Nero.

    My drive is OEM, I already had all the screws, cables etc so didn't need a retail version, or the software, and it works great.

    If you're burning dvd files like .vob, .iso etc then Clone DVD 2 is very good. Nero Vision 4 is good for burning mpeg files, you can put menus on as well. I've tried it with avi's but it can't transcode them well (it says 7 hours remaining but it never goes down) so I convert them to .mpg first.

    Mine did come with Nero but it doesn't want to copy dvd movies. Is there a way to get it to perform this?

    You can copy DVD's on your PC but TechSpot does not condone the illegal copying of copyright protected material so you will have to search elsewhere for that. We can, however, help you if you own the copyright to the material or want to make a personal backup copy, in case the original gets scratched etc.

    I always use Aimersoft DVD Creator, it can easily convert all popular video formats (AVI, MP4, MPG, MPEG, 3GP, WMV, ASF, RM, RMVB, DAT, MOV, FLV, etc) to DVD and burn DVD movie played on portable and home DVD players, that's very good

    details

    Can you give more details. Especially if you have used other softwares recently and then chose between the two. I have found you can't really find the differences of these burning softwares unless you use the current versions on your system at the same time.

    Nero 7 seems expensive and bloated but maybe good things come with the price. Mostly I am concerned with ease of interface. And that it plays all DVD's that I burn on any player on the planet...

    thanks for your ideas and input...keep them coming

    I've tried Roxio & Nero 8 and had problems with them both and I'm now using ConvertXTo DVD and its great and seems a lot faster than the others with very few failures
