A DVD creator is software that works as an interface between your DVD drive and the DVD you want to burn. You cannot burn a DVD without the software since the DVD drive would not be able to receive instructions. There are many DVD creators by different companies and this plus the fact that different DVD creators have different features means making the choice is difficult. It is important that you know the qualities of a good DVD creator as this will ensure you get value for money.

A good DVD creator is one that supports the different blank DVD formats, the most common being DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD+RW, and DVD-RW. These could be on DVD-5(4.5G) or DVD-9(8.5GB). The DVD creator should also support different CDs formats. Go for DVD software that supports DVD drives from as many manufacturers as possible. The DVD creator should support both external burners and internal burners.

The DVD creator should not be too demanding in terms of your system requirements. Good DVD software will work with Mac OS (if you want to convert video on Mac) as well as Windows NT4, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. The DVD software should run on a computer with as little as 800MHz Intel or AMD CPU and one with as little as 512MB of RAM. You should however note that the faster your computer is, the more likely it is that you will get a good final product.

A good DVD creator will come in an interface language that you understand. Go for software that helps you convert as many video formats as possible into DVD format. These include DAT, MP4, ASF, AVI, SWF, MKV, 3GP, MPEG, MPA, FLV, M2TS, DV, TS, VOB, MTS, and MOV. The software should allow you to add the desired audio tracks as well as subtitles to the DVD file you create and it should allow you to edit the audio track and the subtitles so that you get the desired effect.

A good DVD creator will allow you to customize the DVD menu. It should allow you to choose from different menu backgrounds as well as different frame styles and button types. The software should give you several DVD title contents to choose from and these should come in different colours, fonts, and sizes. A good DVD creator allows you to burn a DVD in different speeds.

You should go for a DVD creator that is user friendly. The software should have simple operating steps so that you can use it without too much technical knowledge. The software should come with the relevant documentation detailing how it should be used. Cost considerations are important when making the choice, but do not let these blind you from making the other important considerations. The DVD creator you go for should be from a company that updates the software version regularly to take care of bugs and for the best performance.
