Editors' Review

To burn discs with your PC, you need two things. The first is a CD burner, or (better) a DVD burner, or (better still) a Blu-Ray burner. The second is disc-burning software. For the first, you're probably limited by the burner you already own, and your burner's capabilities will determine what kinds of disc you can burn, how much and what kind of data they can hold, and how long it takes to burn them. But for the second requirement, the burning tool, you have a lot more choices, and a lot of them are free. Active Data Recovery's Active ISO Burner is a free disc-burning utility that is simple to use but offers more sophistication than some premium disc-burning packages. It supports a wide range of devices, including Blu-Ray drives, and three independent burning transport protocols (SPTI, ASPI, and SPTD). You can specify the number of copies to burn, burning mode, and even what happens when the job is done. Recent upgrades include an updated burning engine and Windows 8 compatibility.

Active ISO Burner's installer can also update your PC with any burning transport it lacks. With our permission, it installed the SPTD transport protocol on our system. With a dialog-style interface, drop-down menus, and basic but clear data display, Active ISO Burner is extremely easy to use. We browsed to an ISO image we'd saved in the Source field. There was no need to choose a Target: our DVD burner was the only device on the list. We left the default Mode selection, Track-At-Once, and the default Speed, Auto-Select, though each control offers more options. We could also specify the number of copies to burn, from 1 to 100. An Options button accesses a smaller dialog box with Transport & Cache options and other advanced settings. All that remains is a large Burn button, though you'll find a User's Guide in Active ISO Burner's Start Menu folder that explains how to burn discs.

Active ISO Burner made quick work of burning our ISO image, automatically determining the best speed for our drive. We like this simple tool with not-so-simple capabilities.

"Does not work"

February 26, 2015

 |  Version: Active@ ISO Burner 3.0

Pros

None what so ever.

Cons

It installs crapware and crashes on start up!

Congrats guys you broke perfectly working software.

Idiots.

Summary

I'm running windows 7 Pro SP1. Their software does not work and it isn't worth installing it as it just puts crapware on too. Ironically the crapware works better than their software.

"Warning - this version does not work at all"

February 03, 2015  |  By Meat_ball

 |  Version: Active@ ISO Burner 3.0

Pros

There is nothing useful about this software

Cons

Crashes 100% of the time on opening.
Waste of time
Doesn't do what it may have once done to get high rating.

Summary

Do not download or install this software. It just doesn't work in its current version 3.0

"Do not install"

January 22, 2015  |  By joshua.y.chung

 |  Version: Active@ ISO Burner 3.0

Pros

NONE to be found

Cons

1. The software crashes at launch
2. The install exe installes a crapware - PC Cleaner - that tries to "clean up" your registry and whatnot. Terrible software that should be uninstalled right away. PC Cleaner runs as soon as you launch the Active ISO Burner. After the Active ISO Burner crashes, the PC Cleaner runs to clean your registry.

Summary

DO NOT DOWNLOAD

"Crashes with problem Event BEX"

November 08, 2014  |  By harri_03

 |  Version: Active@ ISO Burner 3.0

Pros

None since it doesn't work.

Cons

Update from version 2.5.4 on Windows 7 Pro via Lsoft website.
Crashes every time I start it so I'm uninstalling it.

Summary

Not worth the hassle.
I'm going for another brand as I couldn't be bothered reinstalling version 2.5.4.

Worries me to think that this company could be becoming a has-been.
