    "Simple and effective program"

    April 27, 2015  |   By WahreFinsternis

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    Free! Not all free programs on here are worth having but this one is.

    Cons

    Non as of far

    Summary

    I don't believe Ashampoo creates many good programs these days yet this oldie but goodie is simple to use when basic is all you need.

    "It's free. But so is the static."

    April 10, 2015  |   By mutaulgia

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    Simple, intuitive navigation. Ideal burner for audio cds but for one thing ...

    Cons

    ABS Free inserts brief snippets of "static" about midway on audio CDs (haven't tested it on anything else). Doesn't matter what track, playlist, CD media brand or even computer (verified on notebook and desktop). Static completely absent on audio cds created w/other burners, ex. Nero, CDBurnerXP etc., using exact same songs/playlists.

    Summary

    Loved this product as an ABS newbie. Just disappointed ABS chose this "method" to protect itself against copyright, DRM issues. Caveat emptor. Else if it's a bug, please correct bc product really is great once bug is eliminated (already tried changing DMA to PIO re device channel).

    "once dependable, now... nope."

    January 10, 2015  |   By teadoust-1

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    burns fast
    attractive interface

    Cons

    doesn't burn dual-layer discs anymore

    Summary

    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!"

    January 3, 2015  |   By 7Cav

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    Didn't get that far

    Cons

    Has Malware

    Summary

    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
