I had been rebooting into the other Windows installation that I have on this computer for burning CDs with Nero, its the burning software that I prefer. I tried installing Nero on here (Vista Beta 2, Public, Build 5384) and it said that there was compatibility problems. So, I thought I would try Burn at Once (I needed to burn an ISO image) and I also tried Deep Burner. Neither of those worked, I didn't get past the installation with those. I have not tried CDBurnerXP Pro, but, I'm doubtful that it would work since there has been such slow development. I then remembered that my DVD burner came with some burning software, I had it installed once but wasn't fond of it. My burner came with Sonic Record Now Deluxe. I installed it, burned my ISO image and it seemed to work just fine. Unfortunately, I don't have a free solution, unless you want to use K3B on Linux!
As far as podcatching, I had the same problem. I use PodNova for my podcatcher. It is based on the Juice receiver, but, it doesn't work with Vista. Fortunately, Nimiq does work, so you might look into that.
Been looking for good burning software and came across this list:
But, I am curious what other people are using for general software and what works for them on Vista Public Beta 2. I've been testing Longhorn/Vista for a while, but mostly the OS itselt. Now that I am settling in and have it on 2 machines I am starting to really load it up.
In short, I need some good DVD/CD Authoring and Burning Tools. Time to experiment I guess
Oh, Juice/iPodder doesn't work. All my podcasts come in via my Linux box now, doh!
