    I want a DVD burner (shhh!)

    What program do I use to copy it to a blank disc? Can I also copy it to my computer so I can watch it on my computer?
    What is dual or single layer?
    What speeds are good?
    What brands are good?
    Any functions/features to look for?

    Anything I should know?

    I talked to shannon (mudhog) a while ago about the one he has, but I forget what one he said he had.

    Thanks

    Do you want just the software and already have a DVD burner or do you need both? I use Nero for the software program.

    Check out newegg.com and buy one of their inexpensive burners with good reviews.

    Thanks Shannon, thats what I remember now.

    I was talking about both the software, and the burner itself, I have neither.

    I need to learn about them.
