    LST, 2 questions if I may,

    Whats the best CD/DVD burner? Whats the Best CD/DVD emulator?

    If you guys were using one, what would you use?

    I assume you meant burner software, not hardware.
    I use Nero. But the latest version (8) is really bloated. It takes up around 1GB of hard drive with all the gizmos such as Recode and Nerovision installed.
    Nero 7 does the job fine (unless you want to burn Blu Ray and HD DVD) with less clutter.

    If your rig doesnt have the resources for 8, it is best to combine ver 7 (or ever 6.6 in that case) along with several other small apps such as convertxtodvd (if you are encoding A/V content that is).

    "Whats the Best CD/DVD emulator?"

    my personal experience would be Daemon Tools, as long as the file format you are trying to emulate is not a proprietary one such as .DAA.
    Alcohol is also a good alternative.
