I use both. Nero is great for making audio CD's with CD Text (thanks, Baron!). ECDC is fine for creating data CD as well as Mp3 CD's. Try them both and find out which one you like better.

Don't laugh, I use the CD writing capabilities built into WindowsXP to burn data CDs and audio CDs. Not very featured, but simple and it works.

Otherwise, I'd probably say go Nero. Have used both, perhaps not the latest versions of each and they do a great job with minor interface differences. A bunch of other shareware/commercial programs exist if you want even more choices, such as DiskJuggler and GoldenHawk (or something?).

Matty--yeah, there's something other than Nero. Alcohol 120... imagine, if you will, a mix between Nero, CloneCD, and Daemon-Tools. Scary, ain't it?

And now you know why I want it.

Back when I had the $600 2x HP SCSI burner from Hell, I used Easy CD Creator to master CDs for computer books...

The big thing is that you can't make menus in Nero.
