    it says that AVS is free with no trials or limits. but when I install it, I’m told I only get 5 free disc burns before I have to pay full price. SIXTY buxks. I’m irritated! AVS either recently changed from being free to charging or this review is BS.

      It is still free for those five burns which might be enough for some people, but I added a note about that and moved AVS to the bottom of the list.
      Have you tried the other ones though?

    AVS4YOU has a full trial on most if not all of it’s programs as for the price you are paying to use ALL software by AVS including any and all updates not just 1 most other big software company’s charge you every year and for any new version upgrades.
    as for AVS Disc Creator only program i have had no problems in making back up’s of my games and Blu-Ray DVD’s tried some of the ones you have listed and even some of the better know ones but this was the program for me. worked on my Laptop right after a reboot easy to use to.

    I tried using Ubuntu to burn to dvd two downloaded episodes of Fringe but it only burned one episode. When I use Nero 6,and 7 I can’t get away from the thirty day evaluation period then I have to blow my computer out to use it again.  I was hoping to find a dvd burning software that would allow me to burn more than one episode to a dvd.

    • memenode

      In Ubuntu just put both episodes to the burning window. If they’re too big to fit the DVD then no program will be able to burn them both on a single DVD.

      As for free DVD burners, did you try any of the suggestions on this page instead of Nero?
