    free cd/dvd writing software

    Hi,

    I'm fed up struggling to get nero 7 to accept my registration code, so I'me looking for something free to do it's job (the cd/dvd writing bit, not the other multimedia bloatware <img src=/S/blackhole.gif border=0 alt=blackhole width=15 height=15> . Any suggestions?

    Hubby recommends CDBurnerXP Pro
    http://www.cdburnerxp.se/
    I haven't personally used it, but the description of it on the site sounds promising.

    Thanks Ruth,

    I've looked at this but the looong wait for the latest version is a bit daunting.

    Anybody else?

    Try Ashampoo Burning Studio 5 - vnunet.com, but be quick because it's time-limited offer!

    "Note ignore the reference to 'time limited demo' on this page. You can obtain your full serial code from within the application. To do this, follow the instructions during installation, or within the program, click Internet > Register.

    This full download offer will be taken offline on or around 14th of November 2006."


    I haven't tried it myself, but have read some good reviews. Use the IMBUSD* principle, and grab/ register it anyway!

    I'm getting strange messages in the Free download Manager log as I try to download, including invalid password, yet FDM seems to be continuing.

    Is there an MD5 checksum for the file being downloaded?

    I just noticed that free download is version 5 and version 6 has already been released.
    I would not count on fixes being issued for version 5.
