    I am working on someone's PC and I am wondering if XP supports DVD burning or if software is required. I tried nero but it is crap. Causes all knids of trouble with the PC

    Personally, I like Nero a lot. But there are some good, free burning programs.

    I don't believe that XP will burn DVD's. In fact, in won't even play DVD's natively without an MPEG-2 codec being installed.

    Thanks!! The CD BurnerXP is great. Exactly what I was looking for. Nero was messing with my CD-RW and DVD-RW. This works great though. Thanks again.

    Elvandil,

    Do you have any experience with DeepBurner making DVD's under Win XP? How did it work?

    Thanks for both, Nero is crap under XP will try the CDBurnerXP got to be better. Nero don't even work that hot under Win2000.

    Deepburner makes DVD's just fine. It's just that its GUI is a little hard to figure out.
