OK, i tried nero because i remember in version 6 or 7 it wasn't bloated and had many features. But i tried the latest version and its just too bloated with extra services and not registering formats properly. I also hate the new interface, its confusing. What comes close to nero's dvd making abilities? I plan on making a DVD with a video, song, and powerpoint presentation. I am sure i will probably need a converter for the powerpoint but if you know of a burner that supports powerpoint it would be helpful. Or if you know of a better way of combining these things please mention.
