    It didn't come with any so I tried a couple I downloaded but they seem to take as long to convert the files than it would to watch them.
    What software is best?

    Its odd that it came with no software. I use nero 7 ultra [at over 40$] but nero 6 is a lot cheaper

    eBay - nero 6, Software, Fiction Books items on

    Your DVD writer came without a software? TheSavage is right, Nero is good.

    My DVD Burner is suddenly rejecting some blank dvd's with error message "illegal disc".
    My burner is DVD_RW ND-3500AG. Some discs work fine but I have Sony DVD-R (75 of them) that keep getting rejected. Go Figure!

    I hope you have set your dvd to a region and the sony dvd you got where you out of the region which have set in to work .

    Solution out the region panel of the dvd drive with nero 7 software an set I to (none).

    note : Be careful not to misuse this not more then 5 times because it may lock your dvd to that last region you have set an no father change is possible even if you re-install your operating system
