Editors' review

For many people, a media player like iTunes or Windows Media Player can handle day-to-day media ripping and burning tasks. Users with slightly more demanding needs, however, may seek out a separate application for this kind of work. Astroburn Pro is a simple program that gives users a handful of features for working with digital media. It's nothing fancy, but it's a straightforward set of tools made especially to handle CDs and DVDs and their contents.

Astroburn Pro's interface is plain and fairly intuitive, although the way things are organized takes a little getting used to. A series of attractive buttons with tool tips represent the program's major features. An Explorer panel lets users navigate to files on their machine, and an Info panel supplies information about CD or DVD currently in use. Astroburn Pro lets user copy and erase disc contents, create disc images, and burn images and projects to discs. Creating a new project is as easy as navigating to the desired files and then dragging and dropping them into the project pane, and on the whole, the program was very easy to use. Astroburn Pro supports the use of CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, and HD DVD technology. The program's online Help file is well-written, with plenty of screenshots. Overall, Astroburn Pro didn't totally knock our socks off, but it's a simple, straightforward way to work with digital media.

Astroburn Pro installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Astroburn Pro 2.0.1.0087. The trial version has a 20 days limitation.

    "This is the one..."

    July 23, 2009   |   By nmweatherman

    Version: Astroburn 1.0.91

    Pros

    This is a drag-and-drop program, simplicity at its finest. All I had to do was figure out that I could click-drag-drop any C-disk file to the "New CD" it was sweet. Man, I love simplicity! It also has a clean, slick GUI too. This is the one!

    Cons

    No "cons." This is the only CD burner I'll need!

    Summary

    Man, I'm tired...I downloaded and tried about four or five CD-burning programs from cnet today and none worked. This gem, once I figured out the drag-and-drop function, did what I wanted. It erased my CD then copied a mixed (multimedia) file to the CD...just like that. It's been a long day...but I finally found Astroburn. Thank you so much Astroburn and cnet!

    "IT WORKED!!"

    March 03, 2009   |   By DemsRising

    Version: Astroburn 1.0.91

    Pros

    EASY to use, AND IT WORKED! When I get some extra cash I'll upgrade to a better version (assuming there is one).

    Cons

    Frankly, I can't think of anything. (Knock-on-wood) Except, when installing pay attention -- uncheck the boxes if you don't want to add-on toolbars, search defaults, etc.

    Summary

    It worked! When Roxio (older version) bit the dust for no apparent reason 2 days ago (after having just successfully copied data to 12 discs) I tried FIVE 4-star user rated programs & this was the ONLY ONE that did what I expected it to do -- copy graphic files to disk for backup, and then actually read them from my graphics program. Thank you AstroBurn! Now I can move on to better things. First up is removing the Roxio space hog from my harddrive. ;o)

    "basic, great program for CD & DVD burning"

    January 25, 2009   |   By jillep

    Version: Astroburn 1.0.9

    Pros

    Simple and easy to use
    didnt have any problems burning CDs or DVDs (just data files though)

    Cons

    Doesnt have many options
    installs the Astroburn toolbar - I hate extra toolbars
    changes default search engine (search box in IE) to its own

    Summary

    I like the simplicity and ease of use with this software. This program satisfies all my needs for now and its Free! I did however, not like the Astroburn toolbar and it changed the default search engine in hte IE search box to its own Astroburn search. I have removed the toolbar, but havent changed the search box yet. If you are looking to burn CDs and DVDs easily and quickly, this is your program. Disclaimer: I have only tried to burn data discs, but they work just fine.

    January 07, 2009   |   By gionolms

    Pros

    Easy and very reliable burner, with a user friendly interface. You will be required if you would like to install an Astroburn search toolbar, but it's not mandatory to install it.

    Cons

    No cons to be highlighted

    "Really good"

    September 24, 2008   |   By basketballpenguin24

    Version: Astroburn 1.0.8

    Pros

    Burns quickly, has a good interface, makes for a perfect burner.

    Cons

    You must install a toolbar that comes with it.

    Summary

    I've only used it once so far in 3 days, but it is really great software. It allows for easy and fast burning, and enables you to burn any file you want for any purpose, including ISO and DVD files. The only problem is the toolbar that comes with it. It automatically installs along with the software, but you can remove the toolbar in Internet Explorer. The toolbar doesn't accumulate pop-ups or anything, like other software out there, so it's really not a big deal, just remove it. I would recommend this download to anyone who does some more advanced burning, it's worked great so far for me.
