With this old OS having limits on filesizes of over 4GB and more, it's likely the 9+GB DVD burning could have severe issues in this OS.

Also, your DVD recording software could cost more than what this drive with the bundled software costs.

I'd return the bare drive and get a bundle.

The problem is still this. Nero and/or Roxio would still cost you more at the end of the day than a drive with the software bundled.

If you are using a DOS based Windows, then problems will follow you forever. Those versions were never completed.

The five CD/DVD recording softwares I use (across some number of machines are:

Nero
Roxio
CDBurnerXP
Click'n'burn
K3b

Recording software for specialized funtions are:

Dvdshrink
Dvddecryptor

For clarity, I think all these are great and use them when needed. I offer zero support for such and will not enter into any discussion about which is best.
