MovieFactory 4.0 Disc Creator Edition is a terrific option for burning discs, although we wish its tools were a little more flexible. We still recommend Nero for hard-core users and Roxio EasyCD for the less tech savvy, but this is a worthy contender.
Sony's first double-layer DVD burner does its job well, but double-layer burning itself is a mixed blessing.
Pinnacle's Instant CD/DVD 8.0 offers an improved interface and some useful new tools, but this burning suite still falls a bit short of its peers.
Try Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD if you want to add video importing and editing to your basic authoring, but beware the haphazard tool integration.
Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6.0 is a worthy suite for home and casual users, but disc-burning pros should stick with Nero.
