DVD burn software


(I hope it's OK to tag this simple Q onto this thread)....
I'm brand new at this DVD thing, and naiively thought I could 'drag 'n' drop from one DVD to my hard drive, then the same back to a virgin DVD+RW disc.... obviously I cannot. My Q is: does XP Home Edition have DVD burn sw inbuilt, or , as I suspect, must I download other sw?.. and secondly, what is the recommendation for the software to use? Thanks.

My System
Neither XP Home nor XP Pro has inbuilt DVD burning software, only for CD's. I have a feeling that Vista incorporates DVD burning, but that is some way off.

I would recommend Nero which I have used for some years and have burnt several thousand CD/DVD's with it. A trial version available here.

BTW - would have been preferred to start a new thread on this, but .....

Thanks PeteC - have looked at the Nero site and contacted them to see which of their many products I need... didn't start a new thread as was previously admonished for doing so and my Q seemed so simple.. thanks again.
