Best CD Burning suite?

Well, I have CD-Creator 4 right now and don't much care for it. I have heard many talk about Nero but have no experience with it. Is it the best to get? Also, does it support CD-RW write and re-write?

One more thing. Do any of these buring suites offer something similar to Norton Ghost? I guess I am about to get that program as well and wanted to make sure before I bought it.


Thanks,

C. Ryan

Nero is good for general purpose burning. I use it 90% of the time. Ghost is a bit different though, and don't think any of the cdrw programs do quite what it does.

i use 3

clonecd - to make exact copy of cds (including copying the cd protection)

cdrwin - for burning bin/cue files

and nero - for everything else.. it will also do bin/cue files, but I still prefer cdrwin for that

I use CloneCD for SafeDisc backups and CDRwin for everything else. Great programs with many options (which, of course, makes them a bit more difficult to use than EZ CD Creator that basically has no options)

I believe Nero has cdrw support like EZ CD Creator's DirectCD, called InCD (?). My experience with InCD is that it's a POS. You can eject the cd from the drive itself but rather through the InCD software. Nero is great cdr software, however.

Hmmm. I wonder if the Cd Creator CDRW program plays nice with the Nero CDR software.

I've had some problems using a DirectCD formatted CDRW and Nero. My dad uses Nero and I use DirectCD and he has the good internet connection...so I use a CDRW to transfer files to my computer. The only problems I've had with the CDRWs is that sometimes I can't delete the data on the disc from my machine (using DirectCD) and sometimes the data wouldn't appear at all. Results with the software will probably vary though.
