For editing video, our favorite was ArcSoft's ShowBiz DVD 2: Its exceptionally logical workflow; well-designed, powerful storyboard and timeline editors; and ability to export video creations to a number of different file types won it high marks.
FileCD™ 3.0 is a full-featured packet writing utility. Using FileCD and a supported CD/DVD Recorder, you can copy your data files to CD/RW or DVD/RW discs for transfer or archival purposes.
In our packet-writing tests -- where we formatted a rewritable disc and dragged and dropped 2.64GB of files and folders onto the disc -- the Kano K8Xtreme took the top spot, requiring just 8 minutes, 52 seconds to complete this task. Its closest competitor was the Plextor, which took 11 seconds longer. By contrast, the Memorex True 8X Dual Format DVD Recorder and the LG GSA-4081B were slower by 3 minutes and by 2 minutes, 10 seconds, respectively, than the Kano drive.
Currently, the most popular widely supported disc file system format is ISO 9660. Discs written in ISO 9660 format can be read from ISO 9660 compatible operating systems without any additional drivers. Most, if not all, operating systems today are ISO 9660 compatible.
