I much preferred my Windows XP Roxio cd burner and I am considering buying another similar program.
I've used both Nero and Roxio and they both work just fine (though they have so many features that at times it takes a while to know which to use). I most often just use the Explorer method. I generally find that it is too fast. I sometimes wonder if it has copied the files only to find that it has. So I've learned to trust it. For example, I just dragged 23mb of photos (89 of them) over to a blank Cd I had just put it. It took less than 60 seconds to copy them all over. There is a little window that pops up while it is doing it that shows a progress bar.
