    "Does NOT support Dual Layer DVDs"

    August 4, 2013  |   By VJayJohn

    Version: DVD Author Plus 3.0

    Pros

    They took my money fast!

    Cons

    Does NOT support Dual Layer and does NOT consistently fill a single layer DVD. I have tried on 4 separate occasions to work with their tech support - they ONLY use email/web entry and it takes weeks for them to respond. They said ver 3.1 would support Dual Layer and it DOES NOT!!! Had to finally ask for my money back, and they are ignoring me. BBB complaint was filed, but BBB website says they are rated F - should have checked there first.

    Summary

    I WOULD AVOID THIS COMPANY!!! They also say free upgrades, but this is misleading. If they change the product to the next revision (i.e. 4.0), they will CHARGE YOU for the upgrade!!! I unfortunately also have their digital media converter and fell into this trap: I had an older version (2.x) that stopped working. When I went to upgrade, I had to pay full price for their 3.0.

    "Free is good - Use Version 2.3"

    March 22, 2013  |   By ndm13

    Version: DVD Author Plus 2.3

    Pros

    Simple DVD burner that works wonderfully.

    Cons

    Does not do menus. My one disappointment. Otherwise flawless.

    Summary

    Version 2.3 works. It's good and I like it. It's really easy to use.

    I couldn't believe it when CNET told me there was a new version. I thought an update could only do good.

    Apparently, it's "Free to Try". I don't want to try it. I want the whole thing. That's what you get in 2.3. Be sure to download that version.

    "Loaded with garbage-ware"

    March 2, 2013  |   By robosolo

    Version: DVD Author Plus 3.0

    Pros

    It works for copying a CD

    Cons

    This program comes loaded with garbage-ware that is almost impossible to remove.

    Summary

    This is a program you want to avoid.

    "Free DVD authoring that actually works"

    December 31, 2012  |   By hegggy65

    Version: DVD Author Plus 2.32

    Pros

    With numerous uses has never failed to author and burn DVD.Features include;Long play, Short play 4.3 & 6.9 options.Can also burn Iso files and a great added bonus can copy discs.Very easy to use, explorer like interface.

    Cons

    Would have given DVD Author Plus 5/5 but for the fact you can't create menus or chapters.

    Summary

    Very Good DVD Authoring Software for free.

    "Quick and easy to use"

    October 20, 2012  |   By esoxhnter

    Version: DVD Author Plus 2.32

    Pros

    Easy to use, quickly burned a dvd that I couldn't burn with Windows DVD Maker. Not a lot of features, but gets the job done.

    Cons

    A lot of garbage in the install process. You really need to read every install screen or you'll get a bunch of unwanted add-ons/tool bars...

    Summary

    Add your files, click burn.

    "Marvelously simple!"

    May 12, 2012  |   By adoptapet

    Version: DVD Author Plus 2.31

    Pros

    Burned Mint Linux ISO in about 3 minutes!

    Cons

    None whatsoever for the chosen task.

    Summary

    Of course, my task was very simple for this utility, and it performed the burning of the ISO image without any problem. Your objective and results might obviously be much different.

    "Worked Great on One of Two Computers"

    April 28, 2012  |   By mailmanx

    Version: DVD Author Plus 2.31

    Pros

    On my Windows 7 computer, DVD Author Plus is awesome. It is very intuitive, it's fast and it makes good quality DVD's. I use it mostly to encode MP4 video from YouTube to disks. It does exactly what I need.

    I like that the DVD you create will start playing immediatly when inserted into a DVD player.

    Cons

    I could not get it to install on my XP computer. It told me to turn off the system debugger. I turned off every debugger, my AV program, Malwarebytes Pro, etc. DVD Author Plus never installed.

    Another con is the same as one of the pros - it only creates DVD's that play immediately. I love that simplicity, but it does not allow an option to create a menu or submenu for the times I want that.

    Summary

    Of the six free DVD Authoring programs I personally tested, DVD Author Pro was my favorite. I just wish it had an option to create a menu for the few times I need that.
