DVD writer - what software do I need

  scotty 09:24 28 Nov 2003

I am planning to buy a DVD writer. Primary use will be to create DVDs from camcorder tapes but I also want the ability to create data DVDs (data back-ups etc.). I have Nero version 5 and Easy CD creator (version 4 I think) for CD Writing. For Video editing I have Studio version 8.

I know Studio should work for all my video editing but I have seen many reports of problems creating DVDs with Studio. Some recommend using a separate package to create DVDs.

Do I need additional software to work with DVDs?

I had been planning on getting the LG 4040b but the software which comes with the retail version is not the best. Does anyone know of any good offers of software bundled with DVD writers?

Thank you all for your responses.


I have Nero 5.5 so it sounds as if I do not need any additional software. I can save a few pounds by buying the OEM version of the 4040 which does not include the software.

P.S. Did you know that twelve plus one is an anagram of eleven plus two?
