Guide Review - Review of the NTI CD & DVD-Maker 7 Titanium Suite.

I was able to easily install NTI CD & DVD-Maker 7 Titanium Suite onto my Windows XP machine in about ten minutes. The only annoying part of the installation was having to install three different programs instead of a one-click install. After installing and starting the program, the user is presented with several choices depending on what you want to do. I first started NTI HomeVideo-Maker (one of the nine programs included on the disc) to capture video and burn a DVD. I used the ADS Tech DVD Xpress video capture device and the NTI capture software to record video from a VHS VCR to my computer with no problems. I was then able to create a DVD menu and burn the video to a DVD. The interface is very easy to use, with a step-by-step format for using the software. I was also able to copy an audio CD, a home DVD and burn an MP3 audio CD with no problems. Making a photo CD or data backup is also straight-forward and easy to do. Beginners might have a few problems using the software, but if you've ever used Roxio or Nero, you should have no problem using NTI CD & DVD-Maker 7. Overall, I found the NTI CD & DVD-Maker 7 software suite an affordable and easy to use program.
