|Nero Vs. Easy CD.|
If you have purchased a CD-R drive, or
you own a computer that came with one, chances are it came with software for
burning those CD's. And in most
cases that software was probably from a company called Ahead Software http://www.nero.com
and was a product called Nero.
Nero is the software that lets you burn
those CD's. Now I believe most
folks will be perfectly happy with staying with the software they got for free.
But this article is for those of you who are not happy with it or want
If you feel that "Nero" is not
as easy to use as you would like. Or
you can't seem to do with it what you would like.
I strongly suggest you check out another program from a company called
Roxio http://www.roxio.com .
Roxio has a product called Easy CD & DVD Creator.
At this time it is up to version number 6 (Nero is also at version number
If the name "Easy CD" sounds
familiar to you, but the name Roxio does not, it maybe because you are recalling
a company called Adaptec. Adaptec
started the Easy CD software line. Roxio
took it over.
Around here we have a number of
computers running CD burners. Everyone
of them came with a "free" copy of Nero on it.
Personally I have never really liked this software, based on my needs.
Yes, it is easy to use, but I wanted more.
I also found it did not always "Like" the CD drive it was
trying to control.
I had an old copy of Easy CD from
Adaptec on one of the computers and found myself only using the burner on that
So, the other day when I was at a
computer fair, I saw the Roxio program for sale.
And it was the new version 6, and only $10.00.
Now it was missing all the documentation, the box, everything.
It was just the disc buy itself. But,
hay, how bad could it be at Ten Bucks!.
I have to tell you.
I find it easer to use then Nero and more versatile.
Now as for the $10.00 price. Lets
be real. I lucked out. I
doubt you will get it at this price. But
I think if you look for it on Ebay, you will be very happy with what you find.
I have even seen it at my locale Wal-Mart.
But the Ebay price will be a lot better.
So, If you find Nero O.K., then stick
with it. But if you find you want
something more then what you got for "free", check out Easy CD. I think you will be very happy.
