I just bought a new dual layer dvd burner. I havent installed it yet and it comes with an oem of nero. Nero is my software of choice but i have heard some very bad reports about nero's version 7, mainly audio problems. I wonder, does anyone have any further info for me. For instance, nero is now at something like version 7.2 or 7.02 or some other version and i am wondering which version has the audio part repaired, or is it repaired. I have a really great retail, ultra version 6.6 that came with a ton of other programs, one of which is nero showtime, which plays some dvds that i cant get to play on winamp and other progs. I am wondering which version i should choose and does version 6.6 have support for dual layer or not? I dont know the version of the oem nero i got with the dual layer burner i got, but it does say " oem suite 3" on it, as well as "nero express 6.6" along with other nero programs. It also says it has "MPEG2- SVCD/DVD plug-in". I am wondering if that would be the "dual layer plugin". I dont think so but i thought i would ask. As you can see, there are many ins and outs here, and so i figure someone out there can provide the info i need. I am thinking this may be nero 6.6, in which case i might be better of using the retail v6.6 that i already have for this burner as well, but it seems to be older and i dont know if it suited for dual layer burning or not. So if you know any answers to any of the questions i have posed i would appreciate your input. I am hoping, of course, that someone who has used all or most of these versions would have first-hand knowledge that they are willing to share. thanks in advance, i am fairly new here. I was at another site similar to this for about 5 yrs but got tired of the politics there. This site seems to be free of such politics and seems to offer a great deal of info. I also like sharpening my hardware skills by helping others with their hardware problems. Could be that i am better at hardware skills rather than software skills,lol, but we all have our favorite areas i suppose.
