follow on to my previous post

I was partly wrong about non existance ( everything is relative ),
Your asking on a forum implied, from my point of view,
low cost tecnology, cheap hardware, cheap software, easy install, easy utilization

but if You are asking from a higher profile point of view ... Yes!
there are non cheap tools for CD/DVD creation,duplication,labeling and all the frills
