well i personally have not had the chance to view Nero. Their download
system is pathethic for online ordering and there is no phone number to call.
And they do not answer their email in a timely manner. So my visa card has
been charged and no software. At least sonic mydvd has a number to call.

Customer Service is important. You can have a great product but if you
don't have decent support then the application can go down the drain. And it
is true the other way.

I personally like Nero. it gives you many more options as far as quality
(bitrate) to encode your DVD enabling you to get much more movie on your
finished DVD (of course you sacrifice some quality - but at least its YOUR
Choice) the menu creation options in Nero also provide for a much more
customizable menu. differing lay-outs, movable buttons etc. the one thing
sonic does better is the creation of sub-menus. all in all, both good
products, but I prefer Nero.

one more note. Nero also lets you burn to an "image" file, that you save to
your hard drive, then using Neros Drive image you can mount the image (just
like putting a DVD in your drive) and preview the entire DVD, menus and all.
saves a ton on wasted disks, because the burn process failed. when you are
satisfied with your results you simply open the image in Nero burning Rom
and burn as many copies as you like !!! comes in very handy when burning
20 to 30 copies of a DVD (little league highlights, family video, etc...)

You already asked this today in this same section, so I guess I will
duplicate my answer as well. :)

Like many people, I have tried at least 6+ different popular apps. I really
like the ease, power, compatibility, and completeness of the Full NERO 6.x
Suite, which includes the Nero Buring ROM app, Nero VisionExpress 3, and
more. Also, if you get the DVD plugin for recoding, you can take an 8+ gig
double sided DVD and it does a great job of high quality compression to make
it fit on a single sided 4 gig DVDR. On most DVDs I can't see any real
quality difference between the 2. Tiny tiny difference. But extremely clear
and clean.

I have Roxio Media Creator 7 and MySonic at work and I can't stand them. And
I haven't been able to do as much DVD stuff as I can with Nero. I seem to
always run into complications with them. Not sure what the cheapest solution
is. Ulead DVD factory 3 I liked as well and also had good luck with it.

I've been using MyDVD for 2 years... downloaded and tried the trial of Nero
somewhere in there.... and stayed with MyDVD.

My preference is to go with the one that you learn and it works. MyDVD came
with my new Toshiba laptop 2 years ago. I got to know it, and it works...

I've read lots of good things lately about Nero... maybe if it comes with my
next computer, it'll become my preferred one.

A secondary reason for me staying with a Sonic product is the ongoing
relationship between the Microsoft products I write about and the Sonic
software.... the CD burning of MM2 and PhotoStory, and the DVD burning by
the MM2 version in MCE2005 are all using the Sonic codecs and underlying
Sonic software.... it's easier to write about it if I use it.

Thanks for all your responses. For the last year I've been burning my dvd's
using Sonic MyDVD because it came bundled with a firewire I bought. Nero
came bundled with a dvd-rw/cd drive, but for some reason every time I tried
to burn using it, the project would never finish burning-just went into
suspended animation.
I eventually got the full Nero software and downloaded the updates, and
boom, everything worked! I've burned a couple of projects with Nero recently
and like the bigger selection of menu templates Nero provides.
Overall, I like both programs and in the future will probably choose one or
the other based on the menu template I like for a particular project.
As far as editing, I love using Movie Maker for its ease and quality. I
like it much better than trying to edit with Nero or Win DVD which came with
my HP computer.
Happy editing!!!
