    I am just wondering what program I should use to listen to/burn music. I'm sick of windows media player. I have heard not to use real player, because it does bad stuff, but I'm unsure what exactly. What do you all recommend? Preferably something that is free....

    Nero does burn pretty quickly right? I also want something that has good burning quality. I don't want any fuck-ups when I'm listening to my music

    Never had a problem that wasn't caused by shitty CDs.

    So should I just do a search for it, and then download? Sorry for the dumbass questions, but I don't download very often. And I'm pretty much ignorant to the whole internet music scene.

    Nero's not free. You can purchase it, or pirate it.

    There's a decent (free) burning program called Fireman or something. I only used it once, and it didn't really impress me.

    weak its only available for xp.

    and yes winamp sucks for movies, i use winamp5 for music only, wmp9 for movies, ares for downloading music song by song, and azureus for torrents.

    oh and Easy CD creator 5 for burning cd's, and alcohol120% for my virtual drives and mounting images to them :)
