Best/cheapest Programs for burning DvD's

posted in DVD Burning

Ok, I am sorry if some of these questions have been answered but this whole thing is extremly frustrating. I have a dvd burner but now I need all these other programs just to burn a stupid dvd? I would like to know if there are any programs I can use to burn dvds without having to buy them. I have downloaded smart ripper and it works great to rip the dvds to my hard drive but I am having a hell of a time finding a simple program to burn them to disk. The stupid Record Now crap doesn’t work with protected dvd’s (which makes a whole hell of a lot of sense) so I need to know which program I should use. If anyone can tell me where to find a free program to burn dvd’s that would be great if not which program should I buy. reply

Sounds like you’re broke and you want to burn something for free.Here is a link for you.Check for what you want.Nero is very popular also Roxio or Alcohol 120%.NTI Copy is an easy one and so on.Google best burning softwares and choose one. reply


Well, since it seems you like to do dvd copying the very first program i’d recommend is DVD Shrink. Use that to decrypt/rip/transcode your DVDs for backup purposes. Great thing about this is that its an F/OSS (Free/Open Source Software).

Along with DVD Shrink I highly recommend you get Nero. It works amazingly well with DVD shrink in that once a DVD has been backuped up to your hard drive, DVD Shrink will use the Nero Burning API to burn the DVD by itself. So Try to get a copy of Nero. And although this is a commercial application many DVD Burners come with this software. You could get the trial edition to test it with DVD Shrink. And if your burner did come with a copy of it somehow lost your copy. I think it would be okay to get another copy without buying it ;)

If you really wanna stick to Open Source Software strictly I say try a program called BurnAtOnce. It’s a GUI for CDR DAO which is a Open Source Burning Library.

Here are the links to the programs:
1) DVD Shrink -
2) Nero -
3) BurnAtOnce - reply
