Question Best CD/DVD burning software

search for 'burn' yields no results, hence topic.

I recently got an NEC 3500A, and have never burned a DVD. I've used Nero to burn CD's and never had a problem, but if I simply stuck with what worked I'd still be running Intel.

So I'd like to hear knowledgeable people's thoughts about which burning app will let me put this burner to the best use.

Thanks in advance.

Nero 5.5 for DVD's, and Nero 5.5, Alcohol 120%, CloneCD for CD's.

Nero 5.5 does almost anything I need, so that's what I use most often.
