    DVD Burning Software - which one do I Trust


    Hi there

    Used a used once so nearly new DVD+RW Disc. Erased before each attempt to re-burn.

    Same .ISO File - used NERO 2014 -- Verify errors, Windows built in burner -- also verify errors but K3B on Linux using GROWISOFS/ MKISOFS passed verify OK.

    DVD plays without any problem on at least TWO different DVD players.

    My gut feel is to trust the GROWISOFS / MKISOFS system - Nero IMO has always thrown up large numbers of "Verify" errors - Windows is better but still chucks out the odd Verify error.

    If K3B chucks a Disk out then I've found it really IS unuseable.

    Normally I don't use DVD's any more but I need to make some physical DVD's for some people to watch movies I've ripped -- they don't want to plug a computer in and watch them that way - and I've about 50 of these DVD's left.

    Any comments on Nero / Windows built in burner. Imageburn on Windows also seems reasonably OK.

    Cheers

    Windows built in burner is nice. It burns files fast. I don't think nero is a good choice. Many errors tho. I dunno imageburn so that's it

    I use Ashampoo Burning studio free v6.71 for few years now and never an error that could be attributed to it. Also using Pioneer DVD-RV DVR 112D, PATA/IDE burner and only couple of no-name junk CD/DVD disks were refused to burn. Don't like newer versions of Ashampoo, this one is nice with very clean interface.

    Using Nero to burn these days is like trying to kill a fly with a nuke.

    AnyBurn if you do not need a juicy GUI or CDBurnerXP if you want one.

    ImgBurn or NeroLite seem reasonable too, but there are many others:

    I have not burn anything for years, USB, HDD or cloud for me only.
