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,
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?
