Mindful of my need to upgrade Nero 6 in order to work with Vista, I spotted the free cover disc with the December edition of PC World Magazine. Ashampoo Burning Software 2008. There are some other full applications all claimed to be fully Vista compatible including Ashampoo’s WinOptimizer as well as disk backup programs…. I’ve installed the Burning Software and obtained the free registration code. Just burnt myself a copy of Simply Mepis , well you got to keep you options open 😉 Also copied a standard data CD , all seems to be working so far.
