CD/DVD burner software

by Gwendolyn / June 16, 2007 10:08 AM PDT

I'm ordering my son a new computer (Dell XPS 410) with a CD/DVD burner. Does one have to buy the Roxio Creator 9 to in order to use them? I would think something would be included but maybe not. Is there better software than Roxio?

You can use just about any burning software you like, including Roxio or Nero. In addition, Vista has native CD and DVD burning capabilities, so for basic tasks the tools are at your fingertips. If you want something more I recommend CDBurnerXP, a free burning application that can more than get the job done.

Hope this helps,

If the computer has a DVD Burner in it then you should have some type of program installed so you can burn DVDS. You may want to contact the company that you're ordering from and ask them

Thanks to both of you. It sounds as if I don't need to get the Roxio. I will call Dell to verify, thanks!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
