    Re: Ahead Nero 6 & Roxio Easy CD 6 Get Ready to Rumble

    Thanks for those links. Interestingly, for me at least, we run both these packages for burning CDs. (Part of my policy to allow users to select their own preferred specialized software.)

    Re: Ahead Nero 6 & Roxio Easy CD 6 Get Ready to Rumble

    I don't have extensive experience with them both, but I have Nero 5.5 and Roxio 6 and I find Roxio more prone to crashes, less stable and that seems to be some of the buzz when people complain about 6--I don't have the need yet to do much DVD burning. What do most of your users prefer and do you have a preference?

    Re: Ahead Nero 6 & Roxio Easy CD 6 Get Ready to Rumble

    To be honest, I don't have much to do with the software. I use "Drag 'n' Drop CD" from DigiOn as that is what came with my laptop.

    As for the Nero/Roxio question I've had a couple of users try the alternative package but they have all elected to stay with their preferences. I haven't had much problem with either from a support point. Both Roxio and Nero are on version 5.

    Bruce,

    If you purchased a license after May 1, 2003, you are entitled to a free upgrade to Nero 6. If you purchased a license previous to that date, then you are entitled to a discount price on the upgrade to Nero 6.

    Is your CD writer Buffer UnderRuN - proof? I would never buy one that isn't, regardless of the software...

    And you dare to criticize the amusement value of some of the entries in Scuttlebutt? <img src=/S/bif.gif border=0 alt=bif width=70 height=28>

    If you purcased 5.5 AFTER 30 April 2003, the upgrade to 6 is free.

    Re: Ahead Nero 6 & Roxio Easy CD 6 Get Ready to Rumble

    Just my two cents. I recently installed a new DVD-CD recorder. It came with Nero 4. Funny thing was, Nero didn't recognise the drive it came with, even with the update floppy. I went to Nero's site, and got no where. Emailed tech support twice and never heard a word. I uninstalled it, put my Roxio 5 back on. Drive now works great. I ordered Roxio 6 the next day. I always wondered about Nero but not any more.

    I know it's splitting hairs, but where did you get that date? This is from the Ahead web site: <blockquote><hr>Note:
    All those users who bought the boxed version of Nero 5.5 (not one of the OEM versions that you would have obtained with a burner or a PC) after the <big>1st of May 2003</big>, will receive an upgrade to Nero 6 Ultra Edition (download version) free of charge.
