I have Nero 5.5 express which came with my CD-RW, and am now realizing that it is basically a teaser and will have to purchase the 6.0 ultra to get the whole program. I have one friend who has the Nero 6.0 ultra and swears by it, and I have a second friend who swears by Roxio...I could sure use some help sorting the two.
At this time I only have a CD-RW, but will be installing a DVD-RW in the near future.

Wait till you get the dvd -r it may come with something better than express .
as for a choice of nero over roxi it would be user preference i think ,haven't use roxi for quite some time, i also swear by nero ultra .
