I have both Roxio EasyCD Creator 6 and the latest version of Nero. Roxio has definately improved their product... though Nero is still more versatile. It's a matter of personal preference which one you use... but if you started making the CDs in Roxio, you should stick to Roxio just in case.

Also, when making CDs with the drag and drop method, remember that you won't be able to take it to a friends house unless you install DirectCD on his machine.
When using directCD:
-you put a blank CD into the drive and it formats it into a drag and drop format
-you drag and copy your files into the cd
-Then in order to use it on someone elses machine you have to convert it back to standard format, or install direct cd on their machine
So if you had converted it before the upgrade to XP it would be readable. We actually get quite a few people calling with this problem, and I don't install direct cd when I install burner software, because I burn a lot of CD's and it takes longer to convert->copy->convert back.
