One comment on “How to burn audio DVD’s using Windows Vista”

  1. Could someone help with the needed software? For example, following the link to Nero 9.0 brings up a newer program, *Nero 2017 Platinum.* I asume that would work, but it’s $130. Would one of the lesser, cheaper (e.g., Nero classic) programs work?
    Apparently it is only the Windows users that have a problem (Mac is reported to work automatically…) Is there some open source (i.e., free) software for the Windows platform that will also burn a DVD using the needed format?

    Thanks. I have a number of hi-res files I’d like to burn to DVD to play on my PWT, but I’m pretty much a fumble-finger when it comes to buying & using software.
