Can anyone recommend an alternative DVD burning program? I am fed up with throwing DVDs in the wastepaper basket after yet another try with Nero. Is it too much to hope that there is a free one - even a free trial would be worth looking at.
I thought I had a problem similar to yours but it turned out to be the CD writer itself (it had been faulty from the start). I bought a new CD writer and have had no problems since. So have you ever burnt successfully with your CD writer? Or has the problem started recently after it was OK before?
Many thanks, everyone. I have spent hours trying to get Nero to work properly and lots of suggestions (last January, in particular) from readers on this forum. The main problem seems to be the Disk-at-Once function. A search with Google shows that I am not the only one with this problem and there are many suggested remedies, some of which I have tried.
Yes, *I* thought the problem was the Mesh DVD burner, but the computer has recently had a new Hard Drive and the repairers tested the DVD writer and said that it didn't work for the dual-layer, but was fine for DVDs. Mind you, I am not entirely convinced so want to try an alternative.
Yes, I have tried different media: Sony, TDK, Benq, PC line etc. RW disks didn't help, either.
Deep Burner sounds good. Can it be run alongside Nero, or is it essential that I uninstall Nero?
When I started burning, I used Roxio easy cd creater 5 and have stuck with Roxio ever since. I tried version 6 and 8 but finally decided to use version 6 which does all I want. I don't need all the whistles and bells of version 8. You would find version 6 on eBay for about £5.
