I'm looking to purchase a new CD/DVD burning software. I know most people praise Nero as the best ever, but has anyone tried RecordNow Max? The main thing I like about it is that it also has a CD Ripper/MP3 Encoder built-in to the software. I was planning on buying a seperate ripper/encoder, but with this I can save money (plus its 10 bucks cheaper than Nero to begin with). Is there still a reason to go with Nero? Does it still have better burning features? I mainly plan on just using it to make MP3 CDs, music CDs, and hard drive backups to DVD-RW.
