Free CD and DVD burning software

For many years I have always supported the shareware model. Initially this was a great model, you had full use of a product, and when you felt it was the right fit for your solution you bought it.

In my time I have bought many of the products I have used. One of the problems with doing that is you need to remember what product you purchase with which email address and also store registration information somewhere that allows you to use your product. The other problem is that these companies change their policies and pricing and sometimes sell out and you loose your "life time" license.

So more and more I have relying on freeware, and I have some reviews of these already logged below. I will try and post more as things progress.

One of the products that I purchase, and have since lost my registration details in Nero Burning ROM. So off I went to look for an alternative so far these are what I have found

Programmatically send email in Access using VBA and Outlook

When I first wrote my early Access system I used a function I setup in Outlook and then I called that. On upgrading I had a few problems with the older method then I found some help on the MSDN website here... and the related video. The first thing to do before starting the code is go into access, access the VBA (press Ctl+G) then click on "Tools" The "References" and then make sure you scroll down to "Microsoft Outlook ..." the version there will be determined by what version you have installed. This the code that I ended up with after looking at the site above Private olApp As Outlook.Application Private olNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace ' The basics of this from MSDN site ' Private Sub InitOutlook()  ' Initialize a session in Outlook   Set olApp = New Outlook.Application   'Return a reference to the MAPI layer   Set olNameSpace = olApp.GetNamespace("MA
