"It's free, it's easy."

February 11, 2010  |  By mightymike2

 |  Version: BurnAware Free 2.4.3

Pros

I couldn't open my zipped firmware updates for my Blu-Ray player but after finding this free program I haven't had a problem opening them and writing them. It also does DVD's.

Cons

I have no problems with it.

Summary

Again, what can you say about something that is free and easy?

"Does the simple burns I need"

February 07, 2010  |  By cnmoore

 |  Version: BurnAware Free 2.4.3

Pros

Small program does simple data CD/DVD with ease. Options for test run and for verify after write.

Cons

The user interface has some 'You can't get there from here' irritations.

Summary

Lightweight, simple, doesn't have a lot of features I would never use. Does its job well. Unlike some other CD Burners, it doesn't hide the options I use in some obscure 'advanced' section: they are right there and easy to set. This program is much better than Nero and is comparable to CDBurnerXP. The size on disk is 16 MB.

"Excellent, simple & much better than NERO"

February 07, 2010  |  By cyberkid43

 |  Version: BurnAware Free 2.4.3

Pros

Very user friendly, good email support and gives history of each session. Helps know residual space.

Cons

Wish it had some way to place a password that would be required to open a cd / dvd burnt using this software!

Summary

Nero stopped recognizing previously bunt files and I had to get this fine free software to open these files and work on them. The latest version has even cd to cd copy feature. The only thing sorely missing is the ability of the software to place a security feature that will require any one trying to read the cd or dvd to enter a pass-word. Hope the authors do something soon about this!

"User Intrface is awkward"

January 31, 2010  |  By kashcomp

 |  Version: BurnAware Free 2.4.3

None, didn't try all the features.

No disc copy, the most desired feature.. Made 3 coasters while trying to make one disc copy. Only made one CD coaster in the last 10 years.
Made ISO Image and then wrote ISO image. It produced a coatr too.

Summary

Awkward to use. Interface should be user friendly.
No Copy Disc feature.

"Missing Basic Disc Copy"

January 30, 2010  |  By dcscm

 |  Version: BurnAware Free 2.4.3

Pros

- Quick Download
- Truly free. No trial period
- Many options for burning (save image, create boot disc, read disc info, etc)
- Help file is pretty good, especially for a free app

Cons

- No basic disc copy. Their help says there's "Copy Disc" on the main screen, but this isn't so for the free version.
- WATCH INSTALL OPTIONS! Or you will get the ask toolbar, ASK Search as your homepage, and Ask.com as your default search.

Summary

Nice functions for a free tool, but lacks the must-have disc copy feature
