Sometimes the included software is a lite version, so that's another think to keep in mind.
I agree I was also thing of that some some software that comes with the burners is a lite version I know when I had my dell that's all it had on there was lite versions to most of the software.

True but they always offer an upgrade in the program to the full deal.
BUT That's why I suggested buying off the shelf (i.e. a copy on CD). Just easier in the long run like when you get a new computer...

Even though this kind of sounds like this is a one time deal, I probably would purchase an external 1 TB hard drive - maybe two of them - that way you have redundancy in your back ups. You can switch them out if need be. The other advantage to going the external hard drive route over the Blu-ray route is that if you need to access that back up information, you wouldn't have to worry about being at a computer with a blu-ray drive. If the drive goes bad, no reading of the discs. Certainly the hard drive could go bad as well, but not as likely if you're not keeping it plugged in and running all the time.


Edit: I just noticed you did buy a Pioneer Blu-Ray player with Nero. I haven't used Nero in a few years, but I have used that software in the past and have always loved the ease of use with it. Hopefully they haven't changed much in recent years. I understand you were going to keep the discs in a safety deposit box. Probably could also do the same thing with external drives. But anyways, good luck!

Well, you bought a 15x blu ray burner but most blu ray discs are 6X!

Amazon.com: blank blu-ray discs: Electronics

that's true that they do offer an upgrade but I find out that I don't like the software they put on the pc and wind up uninstalling it and buying something else. and besides id'e rather have the disc and the key code on me as I have had some experiances with them e mailing it to me that were not good

So if you use a 6X in a 24X speed burner, I wonder if it just shatters into tiny pieces?!?!
