Windows 7: Windows 7 - Why is Creating a DVD Still So Difficult?

Windows 7 - Why is Creating a DVD Still So Difficult?

why is it that making a simple DVD movie that is playable in your home DVD or Xbox 360 still so hard? it was difficult under Xp, same under Vista, and now it continues with Windows 7. The built-in DVD Maker and Movie Maker work sometimes, they can't burn many types of files, and you ahve to go through a 2 hour burning process before you find out the DVD has no sound during playback!

has anyone come up with or used a DVD authoring software that works all the time, effortlessly? even Nero is a finicky one

Your best bet is DVD Flick ( DVD Flick ). Works very well and good quality output. Plus it is free and easy to use.
