    Nero 7 in a custom installation = lighter.

    ImgBurn. Free and complete, does the job very well.

    However, because I rarely need it, I don't maintain it installed.

    None, because it takes too much time, gives little space and burned DVDs can stop working any time. I prefer USB, external HDD, internet storage and so on.

    InfraRecorder for me. Portable, simple, small (9mb on disk/usb stick).
    Supports ISO R/W, format, erase, copy, data, audio, and video writing, has a true 64 bit model as well. Simply the best for everyday recording. No cover printing but that's not a big loss for me.

    I used to use Nero, and really liked it until it became bloated.

    I have used Deepburner for simple jobs many times.

    I use cdburnerXP quite often, but it feels rather sluggish and uses a rather high amount of cpu, almost to where I don't do much else while it is burning.

    I use imgburn the most, likely because I tend to do a lot with .iso files.

    On a side note, since this is a burning poll, what software do you burn audio cd with. Burn mp3 to audio cd to play in car/home cd-player. I have pretty bad luck with most all media and most all software, aka I have a lot of coasters ;)

    What settings are crucial? Are the "audio cds" actually different? I don't get it really, why one cd-player will really dislike most everything I burn, yet usually when someone else makes me a cd, it works perfectly. Hardware should not be the issue here. Any thoughts.

    All the integrated Windows 7 Burning options: Windows DVD Burning, Windows ISO Burning Tool, Windows Media Player. Windows System RestoreDisc Tool, Windows Backup Tool.
    Actually Windows 7 can burn everything I want too, I only have one issue with Windows 7 burning: burn a .divx/xvid and a subtitle file into a DVD. For that I use ConvertXtoDVD.
    That is also the only thing WMP12 is really missing, proper support for subtitles. I already removed MediaMonkey from my pc and just using WMP12 for music now. But I still have to use VLC for movies with subtitles.

    Before I had Windows 7 I really liked two free burning programs: BurnAware Free (there is a beta of the new version 3 out now) and InfraRecorder.

    Used to be Nero but lately it's been ImgBurn, because it's light and effective, and I mostly burn iso's. Similar to Sully's situation, I guess :)

    For burning mp3 to cd I have used MediaMonkey Gold and it has always worked pretty well.

    Minding software/hardware support, media and burn-speed - there's no reason one shouldn't be able to ace every project.

    Did it do this on all media or specific "music" discs or some specific brand?

    Did you use default settings? There are a number I have played with but not found any difference in success ratio.

    Thanks for the info.
