I would have thought it a subjective point, there are good freeware and commercial programs.

Guess it depends what you're burning (iso, music, dox, video, etc)

UltraIso does everything which I could really need.

Thanks. Btw, im sorry asking these stupid questions, but i have been using LInux for six years and just started to use windows again after many years. Feeling such a N00b at the moment :P

i don't like the use of the word 'best' either - i think it's better to ask for 'favourite'.

i like ashampoo burning studio - it does everything i want it to do.

current version is 11 - not free

(i still use version 10, as it does what i want and i'm too tight to pay the upgrade fee)

*edit* i see version 10 is still for sale, and $10 cheaper than version 11 */edit*

old version 6 - free, and still very useful, just looks a bit dated

Use the one that works for you and that you understand.

Some programs can be finicky about the disk brand that you use.

Try to burn at modest speeds---4x to 12x.

I use the free ImgBurn burning application and Taiyo Yuden blank discs and don't have any problems.

Ashampoo is decent too, but I felt the latter versions were too bloated with 'numpty' features...

that's partly why i haven't upgraded to version 11 - who needs facebook integration in a cd burner, for pete's sake?

Agree 100%... I think I have v9 somewhere, after that point it seemed to become a bit daft...

Then there's the problem with them spamming their customers too...

I vaguely remember having to specifically block a port in my firewall to stop their "pop up" spam. I believe it was something to do with an element of some of their program builds which install an "Ashampoo Channel" alongside the software - allowing them to send through special offers and such like... I know it really got on my goat and put me off them as a responsible developer...
