Me again, bitching about software...:lol:

Well I've been using nero for a while, and I realy dislike it...I mean wtf is Nero Scout, Nero Home (don't tell me I don't want to know)...I hate when something is running in the background and messes with my registry...

I just want to have simple program for copying and burning data to CD/DVD, know of any?

I liked nero 6, it was very in the background so to speak. Nero 7 on the other hand... it's very in your face with "I'm going to help you do this weather you like it or not". Fortunatly having far too much experiance with windows for my own good i removed all the crap that Nero 7 gave me, yet kept nero 7 working. One other strange problem I have with Nero 7 is that it refuses to work at all on my computer unless it tell windows to run it under Windows 2000 emulation...

Nero 6 has an Express and [other. Forgot the name] version. Basically one was for aunt tilly. The other had more buttons and knobs than you EVER wanted to see. It was a bit of the extremes at both ends, but you were able to do what you wanted to.

I have Nero 7, and it tries to look too flashy. "Welcome to Nero! First choose your category. Then, pick a task..."= ANNOYING. Plus, giving people motion sickness from the words moving around the page doesn't make it more user friendly. I use Alcohol 120% more often, because it's nice to use the same program for burning that I use to mount stuff on my hard drive. I also like how the UI is styled simply, and tries to look like the Windows control panel. Consistency is good.

How many guys do want to see 'knobs' anyway?

And speaking of knobs...(here I go again with my almost entirely off-topic yet still related to something already said stuff) there's a shop somewhere in town here called "Knobs and Knockers". Of course they mean door-knobs and those knocker things you see on doors that people use because they're afraid they'll hurt their knuckles if they actually knock.

I use Sonic Record Now because it came with my PC. It's easy enough to use but it seems to like to corrupt files on the cd... although that's just on one of my friends computers which tends to screw something up no matter what it's doing so it's probably not my computer corrupting it... his PC is utter shite and tends to bring out any possible glitch in any possible game or program.

Alcohol 120% is the best. None of the flashiness of Nero, or the bloated size. No nobs, or animations. Strait up burning. I only do iso burns and large file data disks. As far as I know there is no music disk creation or anything of that sort. I still love Alcohol 120 over alot of programs.

I havn't heard anything about alcohol 120 being illegal. And if so, how? Many of its functions are available in other burning suites as well so that would mean those are illegal as well.

And Alcohol 120% costs money... not like that'll stop us though.

True, bittorrent it and find a keygen or crack elsewhere. I would pay for it if I had the funds to do so but on a college student budget, beer money has a higher priority level than paying for seldomly-used software.

It's main problem is that under the new DMCA is would be considered illegal (Have I herd correctly?).

Meh... screw it, let the yanks have there shinny new laws, we'll just keep on burning and ripping to our hearts content. Until Mr Blair feels unloved and goes for gold here that is...

I don't know that it would actualy be considered illegal, I havn't studdied the bill in any grate depth. However, software that is capable of aiding piracy is considerd illegal (if I understood it correctly).

Wait, software that is capable of aiding piracy is considered illegal? In all actuality, that would mean almost every program on the market. Web browsers, chat clients, media players. Everything is capable of aiding piracy.
