Vista Compatibility Programs

by bozeman / July 16, 2006 11:55 PM PDT

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!

Your problems sound like mine!

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! Wink

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.

Now I must go back to using iTunes...*sigh*... but other than that I have gotten everything that was on my XP system to work.
P.S. Vista rules
