    As far as making a DVD movie or backing up data?

    I use Ahead Nero for burning Data DVDs and I always burn on the highest speed possible.

    If you are looking to make a DVD Movie:
    Ahead Nero
    TmpGenc
    DVD Shrink
    ImgBurn

    And list goes on and on.

    If I am having trouble copying a DVD, I will put it on the lowest speed possible and that seems to always work.

    Everytime I try to burn a DVD with DVD shrink it comes up as a Roxio File.

    Hmm, I use DVD Shrink all the time, I have never seen this but I don't have Roxio installed on my PC.

    Should just be able to drad and drop the files into DVD Shrink and choose to burn them.

    dd = dataset definition. It's a tool for writing raw data.

    Of course, you're out of luck if you're using Windows. :)

    While it works, I would recommend a tool with a data buffer. I was just kidding about actually using dd to do it, though as I said. It will work.

    I use CDBurnerXP Pro 3 (freeware that also handles DVDs) and I always burn at 16x.

    I use free burners on Windows also, just have to be careful which ones you install. They all aren't the same and a lot are full of malware / spyware.

    True. That's why I always do a scan before opening the zip or .rar file.

    I've been using ImgBurn for a few years now really easy to use, no complaints
