I have just bought a CD Burner and i would like a program that copies CD's efficiently. I am using WinOnCd and it is very bad. Can anyone find me a better alternative?

Muzza,
Many are out on the market.  I have had success with all but set backs with all.  You as the user will have to decide.  This site lists a few of them.

The HP is the best that I have come across, easy cd creator is good also.  I do not feel this question can be answered (as above) as it is user preference.

Hope it helps.

Glenn

Adaptec Easy CD Creator and NTI-CD Maker are the two I use. They have had good reviews in PC-Magazine and PC-Computing. I prefer Adaptec for Data or CD to CD coping, NTI is just as good. For Audio I perfer NTI-CD Maker this includes Audio CD to CD. Adaptec records audio good, but when I use Adaptec to copy a CD-Audio(created with Adaptec) to CD-Audio, I end up with a loud pop in between songs. This does not happen with NTI, I get a clean recording everytime. You will have to look at their internet sites to see if the software supports your cd-r. Go to www.altavista.com and search for the names listed at the begining of this paragraph.
Note: If you purchased an external cd-r that connects to your parallel port then you will only be able to burn small amounts of data at one time because of the slow transfer rate, if you try large amounts of data you will get a buffer underrun. EIDE is better bus SCSI is the best. SCSI is actually the perfered controller for burning Audio CDs.

I have also used Easy CD Creator and it is not a good "all purpose" CD burning program.

What problems are you having with WinOnCD? I use it at work and have never had a complaint.

If you can get hold of the Philips Software, that copies CDs very well, although I'm not sure if it will work with non-philips burners (because I've never tried it!)

WinOnCD 3.7
check this new version out.
They have build a better user interface than in the older versions.
I had WinOnCD 3.5 and it is awful.
But new version 3.7 is really good.

favourite features:
* create bootable CDs
* support creating audio disc from MP3 songs
* sound editor and artwork
* and many more

Hi, thank you for answering but i don't have a phillips burner and i personally don't trust phillips software or hardware.

I do have WinOnCD 3.5 and it is a bitch to use. I will try WinOnCD 3.7 to see if it is as good as you say. **crossing fingers**

Thanks for all your help
