Editors' Review

+

This CD and DVD burner works as advertised, but the bundled toolbar it installs reduces its appeal. Burn4Free CD & DVD lets you burn audio discs or write data to CDs and DVDs by dropping audio or data files into the main window.

The button-heavy main window has a somewhat awkward look, but it's easy enough to understand. If you find yourself overwhelmed by the multitude of controls, you can switch to the more streamlined Easy mode. Be aware that the app attempts to install the NavExcel toolbar, which changes the way IE behaves when you mistype a URL or enter one of NavExcel's recognized keywords into the address bar.

Budget-minded users may not care, but even they have plenty of other cheap and free options. We'd prefer to burn discs with our jukebox of choice or pay for a more full-featured, less invasive application.

"Spyware Forced Install - Shouldn't be on C-Net"

April 18, 2010  |  By Thothie

 |  Version: Burn4Free CD and DVD 4.8

Pros

Free DVD/CD burning for windows... Although most versions of Windows have this funcitonality built in. (Drag and drop people!)

Cons

Even if you uncheck the Toolbar option, it still installs it. If you attempt to uninstall it, it lies and says IE is open and can't (even if IE is closed). The Toolbar sends your browsing history to a collector, and the gods only know what else.

Summary

This is spyware, it shouldn't be on C-net if they are to keep their spyware/adware free pledge. If the Toolbar really was optional, that'd be one thing, but it ain't. It can't even be removed by normal means (the included uninstaller nor control panel - can only be disabled via plugin management in IE)

"Great deal for free, just don't download the toolbar"

April 15, 2010  |  By JohnnyBevaqua

 |  Version: Burn4Free CD and DVD 4.8

Pros

easy to use and straightforward. Easy to install, just don't want another tool bar. It said it's required, but I unchecked it and the program still installed, so it was just a smokescreen.

Cons

None that I have experienced so far.

Summary

I had my Roxio CD Creator stop recognizing my DVD write drive, so I went looking for something that could do everything that my old one did. The other free ones just didn't have all the options that this one does. It downloaded easily and works fine. An excellent replacement!

"Love it except for the tool bar"

April 14, 2010  |  By WolfBearCo

 |  Version: Burn4Free CD and DVD 4.8

Pros

It works as stated

Cons

They try to get you to install a tool bar which is not necessary. Who needs yet another toolbar? It is not so hard to avoid installing the toolbar and once beyond that I love the program

Summary

Watch out when you install this if you don't want the toolbar make sure not to install it.
