Re: free dvd burner programmes

if you only want to burn complete disks  imgburn is excellent (it doesn't support leaving a disk open)

Infrarecorder. The best I've found, bar none. Does everything Nero does, doesn't install music players/libraries/video players/wave editors/label makers that you don't want meaning the installer is less than 5mb. It's brilliant Smiley

Cheers for the link orbrey, been looking for a decent alternative to Nero. I use Nero at the moment but find it far to bloated for my needs Smiley

Re: free dvd burner programmes

also check out cdburnerxp  I have been using this for the past year without any problems and no adverts to bug you.

Re: free dvd burner programmes

Does cdburnerxp or Infrarecorder let you burn a .avi and .srt file together (.srt is for a subtitle file). Anything I've found on Google seems to be a complicated affair of downloading a lot of software to hard encode the film and subtitles, then export to another program, etc. I.m just looking for a quick solution that lets me add the two files to DVD quickly and then it does the rest, thanks.

DeVeDe (Windows & Linux) allows you to do this.
It's not quick for burning to CD/DVD as you need to perform a conversion from avi to DVD - which takes loads of resources.

The wait doesn't bother me, I'm used to waiting an hour odds for nero to convert lol
