The software requirements for the program are as follows,
The software weighs in at about 80mb in size which is a fairly large download compared to Nero which comes in at about 26mb. However with the amount of features it has you can see why it is a bit larger.
The installations itself is straight forward. You have to accept the License agreement and then enter your details including your serial number. After that the installation will start.
At the end of the installation it will ask if you want to register your software online with BHA.
Finally you will be asked to reset your computer.
This software will also ask you to install DirectX 9 onto your system if you don’t already have it installed.
Program Run Through:
The first screen that you come to when you start up the program will be the wizard interface. This is a quick guided way of using the software.
You can of course close this window down and use the software without the wizard interface. Before we go any further though, let’s take a look at the options you can change with this software.
As you can see there are a number of options available to change and configure in this program. Most of the default settings should be sufficient for most people. There is even a helpful window telling you exactly what your drive can and can’t do.
Most of the program wizards are fairly self-explanatory, simple to understand and use. We will however run through a few of them to see how they perform along with some of the newer and less well known ones.
Now lets take alook at the Data CD/DVD Creation wizard.
