Heya guys :) !! Well, I'm having a delimma. I have both Roxio 7 and Nero 6 (both old editions), and to be memory conservative, I'm choosing to have either removed.

Can you guys help me choose which is the better candidate I should remove? Like, tell me which is more prone to problems, which is more useful, more efficient, etc. etc. (and which one I can completely backup my computer with <--- most important). I can't really decide, as for I have never truly used them to their extent. However, I will need them once the absolute time comes for it.

OR, I can use Roxio's "Change" option to remove CERTAIN components of the program, and not all. But I don't know which I really need or wanna keep. Just help me out a little here please.

Thanks for your time guys !!

Thanks, I was striding toward Nero after reading some magazine reviews online and web comparisions. That 1 GB software ... Holy wow !!

Also, should I update toward the latest version (not 7, but like 6.8 for the version I have) ?

---EDIT---
My mistake, its version 6.6. I guess I should update now, since the update should usually be beneficial. Downloading the package from Nero now ...

Nero has a lot of bells and whistles... The Burning ROM is enough for burning CD. The other things are accessories. But, if you want to update, of course, get the last version.

Just as a little reinforcement, I also have found that Nero works the best for me.    :)

When I have replaced any of my optical drives I have always gone for the one with Nero as the software and I haven't had any issues with that software.

I never needed much in the way of bells and whistles as Tech says, so I never bought a retail copy of Nero, the OEM version with the optical drives was always enough for me.

I don't like to advertise but I've gotten rid of both of them and a few others and
replaced them with Ashampoo's Burning Studio 7

Does anybody knows a free CD burner that:
1. works  ;D
2. is secure (don't fail while burning)  :)
3. is not that difficult to operate (like a command line one...)  ::)

I would like to test...
Oh, better, if the user has already used the burner, not just pointing to someone in Google, etc.

Doesn't windows XP SP2 incorporate a basic (drag and drop) CD burner.

Quote from: Extract winXP help - CD Burner
To copy files and folders to a CD
Insert a blank, writable CD into the CD recorder.
Open My Computer.
Click the files or folders you want to copy to the CD. To select more than one file, hold down the CTRL key while you click the files you want. Then, under File and Folder Tasks, click Copy this file, Copy this folder, or Copy the selected items.
If the files are located in My Pictures, under Picture Tasks, click Copy to CD or Copy all items to CD, and then skip to step 5.

In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then click Copy.
In My Computer, double-click the CD recording drive. Windows displays a temporary area where the files are held before they are copied to the CD. Verify that the files and folders that you intend to copy to the CD appear under Files Ready to be Written to the CD.
Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write these files to CD. Windows displays the CD Writing Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
Notes

XOX
Do not copy more files to the CD than it will hold. Standard CDs hold up to 650 megabytes (MB). High-capacity CDs hold up to 850 MB.
Be sure that you have enough disk space on your hard disk to store the temporary files that are created during the CD writing process. For a standard CD, Windows reserves up to 700 MB of the available free space. For a high-capacity CD, Windows reserves up to 1 gigabyte (GB) of the available free space.
After you copy files or folders to the CD, it is useful to view the CD to confirm that the files are copied. XOX

I guess it depends on what it is you want to burn.

It fails, does not verify the burning, etc.

Hello Tech ;) Persomally I use Ashampoo Burning Studio 5  - it's free now because Ashampoo celebrates that it has 5000000 costumers. Just download it from here: http://r.ashampoo.com/r.php?ri=grskyhjkkx&u=3707274&lk=NoGfTy5D  install, & there will be an option to obtain Free full key ;)
