DVD Burning Problem in Windows Vista

| and Power CD both programs are (or were) it seems incompatible with Vista.
| This I'm finding is an increasingly common problem and very frustrating. I
| don't know who is to blame for this, Microsoft or the developers, but
| almost all the software I've tried to install had thrown up some
| problems. iTunes is particulalry frustrating but thats another issue.
