    In case anyone would like to try a good CD/DVD burning product and don't mind that it's NOT free, here's some news from the folks at Ashampoo. I received an email from them today that hopefully is going to all current owners of the product. So, I thought I'd pass it along to everyone since there do seem to be some adds to the product that people might like. Evidently this version will be available at the end of May and they're making a "half-price" offer by email to current owners. Since Ashampoo is notorious for follow-on price breaks, I don't know what price will be offered to others, but the normal (USA) price is $40.
    The all-in-one burning suite!
    Now with Movie Editor, Movie Player, Slideshow Editor and Cover Editor.

    You have installed our program Ashampoo Burning Studio and registered for a full version key. We hope you are satisfied with our product and it has already proven to be a great help to you.
    But did you know that there is now a NEW and much more powerful version?

    Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 is a complete and powerful disc burning suite that also satisfies advanced users with all the tweaking features you expect from less accessible programs.

    The biggest new feature of Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 is the Movie Editor, which adds powerful video editing and DVD interface building capabilities to the program. This is not just a little clip trimmer you probably won't need any other video editing software. Movie Editor has all the features you need to turn your clip collection and home videos into impressive finished movies.

    You also get a brand new Movie Player with a significantly improved video rendering engine and a modern graphical interface.

    Continuing to dig around, I just found this "news" bulletin on the Ashampoo web pages that offers the Version 9 product for $30 instead of the "normal" price of $50.

    The price that was quoted in the email for registered owners of a previous version was $20.
