Hence: I HATE Nero.

I would have to agree with Metallaxis. But I would add Roxio to the list of programs that are heavy and malfunctions a lot. If any of you guys are going to purchase one of these programs (and I have used a lot of them), Alcohol 120% is by far the best for your money. As a system administrator, I have done thousands of installs of Nero and Roxio and they are sometimes the cause of problems with computers spontaneously restarting and getting the dreaded BSOD (Alcohol 120% has never done this to me on a Windows XP machine).

Also, I am a big fan of DVD Shrink and DVD Decryptor. You have got to love programs that are free, small and do what they advertise. Anyways, I do not want to hijack this thread but if you are going to buy a program for burning purposes, you should give Alcohol 120% a try.
