Over the years I've paid a small fortune to Nero and Roxio to keep up to date with their software. And whenever I've had a problem I found out their tech support was useless, and I had to resort to user forums to get any help. So when the last round of expensive upgrades came around, I said "forget about it"! I found out that there are several excellent and FREE programs out there that work very well for backup purposes. My favorite is CDBurnerXP Pro:http://www.cdburnerxp.se/
It has the basics for setting up a data CD/DVD and it does verification. That is all I need. There are more features in the pay version but I don't need them.
