Arrow Need Software

I need some software that will let me watch/listen/burn/edit DVD's and CD's on my PC. What should I get? Nero? something else?

Freeware would be nice but if I have to pay to get good software I will. No more than ~$50 though. I'm poor.

Nero is great. Don't know how much it costs as I got my copy with the DVD Burner.

Check out Sourceforge or TuCows or some site like that. No guarantees though.

I agree that Nero is good, there is also Roxio Easy CD Creator that is also excellent. Personally I use Deep Burner Of course I am a bit biased towards freeware. Roxio is at while Nero is at

Windows Media Player will let you do everything except for editing DVD's, and it comes with Windows XP.

Audacity will let you edit WAV and MP3 files.
