Chalk one up for Vista…


On my Windows XP media center machine, if I wanted to burn a recorded show to a DVD, I couldn't do it w/Windows. I bought a program called DVD Santa, which got the job done. It wasn't the best, but it worked.

Last night, I had to burn some shows of the Backyardigans for my nephew's birthday.

Using Vista, I opened up DVD Santa and while it was sitting there, chugging along, the dialog box comes up for "Windows DVD Maker"

I figure, what the heck...

Not only did it work, and faster than DVD Santa, I could make customizable menus and text. It was VERY slick.

I am impressed.

    You can record a DVD directly from within Vista Media Center.
