    I literally have tried everything...CDXPburnerpro, CDRTFE (CDRTools) Nero, DeepBurner, etc. I think Nero is bloatware to the extreme (a la symantec) plus it is very expensive. I have been using CDRTFE and liked that but recently it started burning coaster, in fact every disc I tried burning (20+). I have a licence for DeepBurner Pto, but it do not support double-layer burning, and it is quite large also. So if you have any suggestions on small yet capable apps, I'd be glad to hear them. I am thinking of either Cheeta DVD Burner or Sateira.

    I am a fan of CloneCD for copy discs and writting image files like ISO's.

    I found Nero 7 far too buggy and have switched to ONES.

    So far so good!

    I'm not really looking for DVD copy software; I have DVD Cloner III. But thanks for the suggestions. I'm actually looking for a general purpose burning app.



    Blackcat...This looks interesting. Does in support Double-Layer?

    Yes the Ashampoo Burning Studio is my burner if choise as well. The new version 6 is more then complete, but yet 9.5mb to download. Go compare that with most competitors.

    I've tried ONES too, but it gave problems with my burner. It caused lots of buffer-underruns (they got catched up by my burner, so the disks didn't fail, but it slowed the burning process though).

    I really like Roxio, it does most things and i've never had any problems with it,
    Ashampoo Burning Studio is also good.

    @Blackcat thanks for the link

    My favorite would have to be Alcohol120. CloneCd and CloneDVD are also really good.

    Nero is not what it used to be, specially after that bug in mp3pro.dll. So I
    changed to Ashampoo Burning Studio 6 & found it very efficient. If you are
    looking for small yet capable CD burner then you can try CDRWin which is
    not developed anymore. But its worth a look. Cheeta is OK but I'll recommend
    Ashampoo.

    NTI is also good but going the Nero way.

    I am very close to purchasing ONES, I think. But, I still have one question that I need answered before I do that I hope someone can help me with. Does ONES support creating bootable discs? If so how? How do I direct ONES to the bootable image (img, bin, etc.)?
