DVD Burner software

Hi, I've just got a DVD recorder, a Lite On SOHW-812SX and I have several problems choosing the right software to use with. There's so many options, and I can?t decide, wich one should I get? I also want to know if there?s any option (like in CD-RW) that allows to format a DVD+/- RW and then just "drop-in" the files without having to create and close any burnung session.

Nero seems to offer a decent burning software, and i believe that they do alow you to drag and drop files, there is also Ulead video studio if you are making home movies, but Nero will work in limited formats.

The best burner software package that I have found to date would have to be Nero.
They have made burning DVDs very easy.
As far as formatting is concerned that is decided by what ever blank that you put in they burner. If you are not sure what format will work for the players (DVD) that you have you will have to experiment. Buy single disks of both formats and try burning something small to each if you have an older DVD player that only plays either + or - formats the one it can't read will tell you there is no disk in the player. If you are just going to be playing them in your computer then it will not matter the drive will support either.
