Editors' Review


Ashampoo Burning Studio Free is a no-nonsense performer that not only burns data, music, and video discs but also copies and rips discs, backs up and restores data, creates disc images, and erases rewritable discs. New features in version 1.14.5 include more powerful tools, multidisc file backup and restore, an integrated Audio CD ripper that creates high-quality WMA or WAV files, and verification without ejecting the disc in supported drives.


Startup splash screen: New software shouldn't leave you guessing, and Burning Studio Free's splash screen helped us learn about, recommend, and register the product (registration is free).

Clean and plain: Burning Studio Free's plain Explorer-style layouts are a refreshing change from disc tools that pretend to be a recording studio console, and the program's menu lists its features in plain language: Burn Data, Backup & Restore, Music, Movie, and so on.

Backup: Burning Studio Free can create and restore compressed, password-protected archives of your discs and data. It also creates and burns disc images from data files and stores file backups on CD, DVD, or Blu-ray discs -- or to your hard drive, USB drive, or other storage device.


Not a full backup: Don't get us wrong; Burning Studio Free's backup feature is most welcome, but it's not a replacement for a solution that can back up and restore your entire system or discs when (not if) catastrophe strikes.

Bottom Line

Ashampoo's products have often impressed us with their performance -- not flashy style. Burning Studio Free certainly reinforces the impression.

"once dependable, now... nope."

burns fast
attractive interface


doesn't burn dual-layer discs anymore


as stated above, this used to be a GREAT piece of software. something happened though and it simply doesn't work the way it once did. on December 31st the version i had installed stopped working. i went to Ashampoo's website, downloaded it and started using it again about a week later. it looks like the same program, but now every dual-layer disc i burn with Ashampoo is useless and locks at the layer-jump point. but hey, at least it burns those useless discs REALLY fast!

"Malware Do Not Use!"

Didn't get that far


Has Malware


I installed this software, and immediately noticed two(2) new icons on my desktop....
Live Chat Help
Your (Something) Software

I could not delete the 2nd one because it kept saying "You do not have permissions".....Well, i'm logged in as Admin so WTH??!!

Stay away from this download....CNET really needs to check what they allow on this site!!!!

Updated on Jan 3, 2015

"Software Deals" was the icon I could not get rid of no matter what I did....Nothing in the registry or on the computer at all, yet I could not get rid of it.....Had to resort in restoring a System Image from a backup
