I need to transfer some files from a zip disk to a CD. I have a CD burner but no software to burn with. Are there any good free ones out there to download?

Thanks

Nero is the best all-purpose burner

nero is a good program.

if you need it for longer than 30 days
http://www.directdeals.com/product.asp?id=1308

29.00 plus shipping for the oem version of nero 5.5

this was quite a bit cheaper than any price i saw.

with nero

if you keep your eye on www.betanews.com they will let you know every time a new release of nero comes out (whether its on neros page or not)..

each time you install a new version, your time will be reset to the date on the new version.. and they release a new version every month.. so technically... you can use trial copies of nero forever, as long as you get every update the comes out..

of course.. if you ever let it expire.. youll have a hell of a time making it work again until you buy a license.. because you cant just uninstall and reinstall, since it makes alot of registry entries that arent removed in the uninstall

i think nero is well worth the 30 bucks.. and I really cant say that I think using the trial forever is the best way.. but if your not going to pay for one regardless.. then you might as well be using the best..

Will nero make exact copies of cd's? I've tried to make a copy of a cd-rom that I own, and nothing will work. I've tried easy cd cr3eator 5, nero, and clone cd.

try this site for help making a backup of your legally owned software.

http://www.gamecopyworld.com/

some of the mirror sites are faster than others. if one will not load or is slow then try another one.

I hope this helps.
