I was also fed up with Nero. First of all, its huge and paid. Googled for some other softwares and stumbled upon this InfraRecorder. Free, lightweight. Tried and worked too in Win 7. Give it a try and check.
thanks for the suggestions, I ended up trying Ashampoo to "back up" a new movie. I like Ashampoo, it's like how Nero used to be with out of the BS thats now bloated Nero beyond use. I'll allso look in to Patrickt s suggestion so I thank him for that.
It seems to work fine on the RC (7100) 32-bit, I've not tested it on the 64-bit version yet.. But on my main PC it takes 5-7 minutes to copy/burn a DVD (while shrinking it to fit a 4.7GB Blank DVD).. Nice and fast!
