I have img burn at the moment that burns iso and img files and it's free, i also have the option of reinstalling sonic - (comes with dell). I just d/led a trial of ashampoo 6 will see how it goes.. Was just wondering what people think is the best software on the market?

I like cdburnerXPpro. it is also free, and it burns ISOs and just about anything else.

however between the two you have mentioned, I would probably use sonic...

Hardly anyone on this forum will probably agree with me, but I always have, and always will push Roxio. The program is stable, very efficient, the GUI is user friendly, and it does all the tasks I have ever needed.

I've used Roxio since back when it was Adaptec, at version 4.x IMO, that is the way to go.

I have Nero on my box as well, but only because stupid DVD Shrink won't use any other programs burning engine. Nothing would make me happier if I could change that.

Data files and the like I use Ashampoo to burn. To back up movies I use Dvd Shrink, and to burn image files, such as iso's, nrg, bin and cue, etc, I use imgburn ..

I haven't hardly even heard of most of those other programs, I guess I was brought up using Nero, and that's all I know.

I personally use Nero 6 on my desktop (not a fan of Nero 7), and CDBurnerXP Pro on the laptop. They both work well.
The latter is free, so I suggest you try that first to see if you like it.

I use nero 7, because I'm one of those people who have to use the newer versions. Plus I have found some programs that remove alot of the crap.

Dont use Nero to burn the shrinks, use decrypter. Download and install DVD Decrypter, then when DVD Shrink goes to the burn stage it will write an ISO then burn to a disk (and optionally delete the ISO after burning). Decrypter works so much better with Shrink than Nero.

Just a wee tip ;)

Oh and check out CDBurnerXP :)

You don't have to use nero to work with shrink. You can save the files as an image, or files and use anything to burn them. Even EZ PC Crasher. That is exactly what I do; I save them as either files or an image and use Ashampoo or imgburn to burn them ..

I use Nero 7 Ultra, and Alcohol 120%.

As the above mentioned CDBurnerXPPro is also a great program to use. I've used it on occassion for building my Cheap Efficient machines for people.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but I'm sticking with the annoyance of Nero for this for now. I have two drives, DVDRW and a DVD-ROM, so I can go disc to disc. I don't want to have to rip the DVD to an .ISO, close DVD Shrink, switch programs, and then configure the burn. I like to pop it in and let it go on it's own. I can burn a full disc via this method anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on how big the movie is.
