    There's a "Nero 6 or 7?" thread somewhere hereabouts but Nero isn't the only knife in the drawer, so to speak, so I thought I'd gauge what is the most prevalent amongst members.
    Feel free to give us comments on why you use a particular utility and/or why you may have rejected others.

    I only use Nero v6. It does everything that I need it to.
    I would upgrade to v7 if people started saying it's bugs had been squashed.

    In the past I have tried CloneCD, Alcohol, WinOnCD, CDRWin, EasyCD Creator, Discjuggler, Blindwrite... perhaps a couple of others, and with the exception of EasyCD Creator, they all pretty much worked OK.
    Nero 6 is definitely the jack-of-all-trades for me though.

    Alcohol for burning images to discs, creating images, mounting.
    Nero 7 for burning data files, dvds from vobs, music cds (altho I haven't for a while).

    Used to use clonecd a few years ago, used Nero6 up until Nero 7 came out.

    I'll quote myself from that Nero thread.
    I vote for DropToCD. Whole program is less than 1.5MB.

    I just burned an .iso to disc. No muss, no fuss. Point & click. No shutting down other processes. Takes 1/10 the rsources of Nero or less. Imo Nero is a fn joke.

    Using Nero 6 for music cds, dvds, and so far so good.

    I use Nero6 for the straight forward stuff and sometimes the old standby Nero Burning Rom (I create a shortcut to it on my desktop since Nero Start Smart decided it wasn't important anymore). But believe it or not the one I use the most, recently anyway, is not even in the list. Dvd Decrypter has its own burner that works in conjunction with DvdShrink and using it I avoid the old "data will not fit on one Dvd" bug that Nero has picked up lately. I don't know if Nero is re-encoding with out my asking or if it just doesn't see the file correctly but it really tick's me off.

    I use Nero 7 and haven't experienced any bugs to speak of, I have a lightscribe drive which nero happily supports and lets me burn images to.

    Excuse me, but ftw is a lightscribe drive?
    I've seen them advertised but what they actually do isn't made clear. Something about writing on the surface of the disc... images?
