Free is good; I think we can all agree on that. Sometimes, though, free brings concerns along with. If it's free, is it worth what we're paying for it? How about free when you're getting what you used to have to pay for? Maybe that deserves a second look.

The folks who publish Nero are making a limited-functionality version of their flagship optical media burning and copying software available for free. It's the same tool that they're more than happy to sell you, but with a more limited feature set. You can use this free version for simple data copying and burning to CD and DVD media. If you want more bells and whistles, you'll need to buy the "regular" version. The free version doesn't have a time bomb in it—it's good for as long as you want to use it.

Nero 9 – free version is a free Windows app. You'll need to be running WinXP to use it.

    I uninstalled Nero and just used Imgburn (freeware, Windows): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imgburn

    Lightweight, regularly updated, and has good customizeability for more experienced users and good GUI and default settings for those new to CD burning.
