Title: Copying CDs
Post by: Bryan Young on March 13, 2008, 06:32:31 PM
Can anyone point me to a decent CD/DVD copier? I have "Nero 6" but it acknowledges that there are compatibility problems when used with Windows XP (home edition). The built in Windows thingy takes forever when doing 6 copies of the same disc. BY.

Bryan,

Try Nero Express. I have used it for some time with no problem at all. It is fairly quick and I have never had a cpmpatability problem. I run Windows XP.

All the above are similar versions of the same program wih different programs best thing you could is upgrade to Nero 8 with all the above and very easy to work

I have Vista and the default copy option is dreadful although you can change it. Microsoft thought they were making improvements and they weren't!

DVD Shrink2 used in conjunction with DVD Decryter will copy anything at all, regardless of how much it is protected, and they are both free..................

Ashampoo burning studio.  Sits there and works.  Boring.  Often available as a time limited free download.  I found mine via www.vnunet.com

It would appear that the problem lies with the "InCD" part of Nero. Now I can't get rid of the thing and for some reason I keep getting spams from Nero (first ever from anybody) telling me to buy their new version...with no prices quoted. If any business wants my order for anything I want to know how much it will cost me. This "prices on application" malarkey is an affront and should be banned from appearing in adverts. Spheres to them all. BY.

Most mail from companies you've had dealings with, in this case downloading the free version, has an unsubscribe tag at the bottom, usually in small print. Clicking on that should stop the unwanted stuff.

If a program I no longer want either doesn't have an uninstaller, or it doesnt appear in the add/remove list in control panel, I kill it off by finding it in its folder, wiping the folder, and then using a registry cleaner to tidy the loose ends.  That and looking for any references to it in the startup list.  I use a free registry cleaner called "eusing", and a free startup cleaner called "startup inspector for windows". 
I get my freebie downloads via sites like
www.vnunet.com
and
www.majorgeeks.com
Sometimes, doing computer housekeeping is more effective if the computer is running in safe mode.
