Windows 8 Windows Explorer and CD/DVD creation - How good

I have started using Windows 8 and am wondering how good Windows Explorer is in Windows 8 with regard to working with CD's and or DVD's?

That is, in the past (using Windows 7) the DVD creation part of Windows Explorer did not seem quite as good as it might be.  I create DVD's mostly for use with files, like you might on a regular hard drive.

Anyway, because of my perceived limitations I have traditionally  used CD Burner XP instead.  This is well known free software for creating DVD's.  (don't let the words XP fool you).  Anyway, it is good for what I do, but it occurs to me that with Windows 8 it (or other software like it) may no longer be needed.

Just wondering if someone else has any thoughts.

My recommendation is to continue using your CD/DVD burning program that you like and have experience with.

DVD/CD burning has always worked fine in Windows 7 and 8 (for me).    CD Burner XP is a great utility i've also used over the years.    I think either way works, but if CD Burner XP has worked well for you, why change?   It's free.
