what dvd burner & software to buy

  david.h 15:24 30 Dec 2003

I am thinking of replacing my dvd player with a dvd writer,I have seen that a make called LG sell a multi dvd burner that does dvd+,dvd_,and dvd ram all in one, are any other makes doing multi purpose drives with all three formats?

does dvd+ have any advantages over dvd- for burning dvds likewise for dvd ram.

what software is a good buy for use with the dvd, i have nero 5 that came with my cd writer but i dont think it will work with another drive, any recomendations
its a lot in one question, but i have not ventured into the world of dvd apart from watching movies before.

If you have updated Nero to then it will burn DVD's without problem whether it is tied to your existing CD I can't answer.

I have an OEM copy of 5 and it has worked perfectly OK since I upgraded the CD burner to a DVD burner.

The LG4040B and the Pioneer A06 (106 in OEM form) are often recommended here.
