Editors' Review

Burning discs may seem so mid-'90s to some of you, but CDs and DVDs are still an effective back-up tool, and if you're a budding filmmaker or have a garage band that's this close to making it big, discs are an essential medium for your mantra.

The good-looking, easy-to-use Ashampoo Burning Studio comes with all the tools most users will need to create audio, data, and video CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs. The interface is compact and uncluttered, with helpful tool hints that open up next to each burning option, making it hard to screw up. To set up a burn session, you can simply drag and drop files into a playlist-style window. We like the handy, omnipresent gauge at the bottom of the window, which lets us know how much free space we have left. Audio CDs can be made from file types including WAV, MP3, OGG, and WMA, while most video formats are supported for DVD.

Ashampoo Burning Studio doesn't have all the advanced features you'll find in huge packages such as Nero, but average users won't miss them. Ashampoo Burning Studio's simplicity and broad range of tools make it a superb choice for most burning needs.

"Good but hut not better than version 7..."

October 26, 2008  |  By zenmotosan

 |  Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio 8.03

Pros

Uninstalled Nero 8 as i didnt need all of the "extras" Nero offers. Now using Ashampoo BS8 as my main burner program, easy to use, and simply does the job well.

Cons

Would like to see more ripping format options available but other than that no other concerns.

"Good proggy!"

October 25, 2008  |  By racoon

 |  Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio 8.03

Pros

Big relief over Nero due to smaller size. You can make & rename folders, etc., as you can in Nero. Havent used all its features yet, but it has the feel of a good proggy. If you needs are basic, it will save you lots of Disk space compared to Nero.

Cons

Good only for basic needs. Does not have some near-basic features like overburning, etc.

Summary

The size of Nero has now reached grotesque proportions, so I decided to give this one a try. Its definely much smaller... but still, compared to what it can do, it seems a bit oversized. Have used it for DVD-R and CD-R... and it seems to perform as it should.

The sorest point is that it dosent seem to support features like overburning!! So finally had to install Nero Essentials which came with my DVD burner... grrrrr!!! Does not come with any tool to test burners/media (like CD/DVD speed, etc, in Nero); but I guess you can install them seperately.

"GET THIS!!! AWESOME BURNING APPLICATION :)"

September 23, 2008  |  By Zanfer

 |  Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio 8.03

Pros

Reliable burning, Will not conflict with other software, Does not run background services all the time, SATA drives are supported very well

Cons

Bit of delay in launching ( When enumerating drives )... Well this happens to me, but not for all of the users
Its a bit hard to select the appropriate compilation type... But once you get familiar it is okay :)

Summary

Well I have been a Nero addict for such a long time. I own more than 10 DVD writers I duplicate / create DVDs on request for customers. Recently I upgraded my systems and bought SATA DVD writers for all my PCs. After the upgrade I have having lots of trouble and one in every three DVD I burn failed. I was very dissapointed by this. I though problem is with my SATA DVD writers. I updated the MB drivers, BIOS and DVD writer firmware... but no use. Then I though to give a try to another burning application instead of Nero. I searched the net and choose Ashampoo, because it had very good reviews. I uninstalled Nero and installed Ashampoo. Installation was a breeze, no restarting required and I was ready to go. I burned my first set of the DVDs, they all burned fine and worked perfectly. Being happy, I tried several burnings after that, each and every burning succeeded. o more Power calibration errors, unusable DVDs, freezing during the leadouts... Nothing. I'm a very happy customer and fan for Ashampoo Burning Studio now :)

I request all of you to give a try to this software... Probably you all will love it as I do as well :)
