Different from an external DVD writer, CD/DVD writer software means a free downloadable and easily usable disc burning program on Windows or Mac OS. Here I will introduce one of the best free DVD writer apps supporting Windows OS from Windows 95 on up.
Some folks preferred writing a DVD in windows XP/7/8.1/10 using Nero, for example, in the want of downloading Nero 2015 (Platinum) 2015 for Windows 10. Nero AG has announced that they will release the final version of Windows 10 in the third quarter of 2015. But it turned out that Windows 10 does not actually support Nero 2015. Occasionally after installing Windows 10 (64 bit or 32 bit) to the computer, Nero 2015 did not transfer and showed the trial version. Assumedly, it will require an upgrade from 2014 to 2015, and 2015 to 2016 and further up.
To burn DVDs without installing Nero on Windows 8 or Windows 10 if your existing DVD writer is not working, please try the following solution.

2. Load one or more video files: click the Add File "+" button to open any format of video file from your computer. You can continue adding more by repeating the operation. Also, you can change the order of files, delete loaded videos, and add subtitle files via the buttons listed on the bottom. Then just tap the ">>" button to proceed.
