dvd burning program- on mum's pc!

  Ballie 20:47 20 Aug 2008

I am in some trouble with my mum!

She has a vista pc and wanted some DVD burning software, I down loaded DVD shrink 2008 for her (which she paid for) but her pc will still not burn a DVD, I think she needs some burning program.

Can anyone give me a link to a free one that works with vista, as I need to get back in her good books!

Thank you

Within Vista there is free inbuilt burning software, not as detailed as what you might pay for but nonetheless free

perhaps I haven't explained this right my mums pc is on vista it now has DVD Shrink 2008 installed it also has a DVD RW drive capable of burning.

But I appear to need some burning program for example on my XP based pc I use DVD Shrink but with Nero burning software.

With mum's pc she has the dvd burning drive, she has dvd shrink 2008 but has no burning software, all I need is a link to a free burning software.

There are several free programmes eg click here or - click here - and click here which should all work with Vista anf are simple to use.
I use WinOnCD 6 which is free from click here (register at click here but this is a large D/L and is a matter of taste. I just happen to like WinOnCD.
