free DVD-A burning program available for dowload?

is there a free DVD-A burning program available for download on the net, and if so which is the best one to use ? i'm currently using "cdburnerxp" to burn CD-R's and want to start burning DVD-A's but there's only options for burning video DVD's on there. or should i just buy a DVD-A burning program and which one should that be? thanks, john

Program

I use "BurnAware Free". It seems to work well.

I think it does that.

wait...

there is burn options for a data disc. if i want to burn DVD-A do i go the data disc route? (because so far none of these burning programs have an option for DVD-A per say)

Prob

Probably. I use a different program but use the data disc option as the way to record hi Rez audio to a regular DVD-R disc (or DVD+R)

by the way, whats the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R? i always thought that was a "dash" in the DVD-R.

Current

There are technical differences between the 2 types, and several years ago some machines were compatible with only one or the other type. But nowadays they are interchangeable unless you use a pretty old computer

Either

the recordable dvd can be EITHER -R or +R. Doesn't matter which one, unless your equipment is picky about it - and odds are that your eqpt will handle either.
