CDBurnerXP

CNET Editors' review

Though this multifaceted burning tool won't win any beauty awards, it has almost everything Windows users need to create CDs and DVDs. One of the most glaring needs for Windows XP users is a DVD burner, and CDBurnerXP Pro fits the bill well. Despite a slightly confusing interface, this freeware tool should not disappoint users who take the time to familiarize themselves with its functionality.

The core of the program's feature set consists of three main tasks, which are prompted via a wizard upon start-up: writing data CDs and DVDs, creating CDs for audio playback, and ripping music from CDs or editing ID3 tags. Canceling the wizard results in a rather blank blue screen with only a few selections in the toolbar. In order to work on a new project, you'll need to select one of the options, which can be brought back via the "New document" icon in the upper left. Unfortunately, you can't even open an existing project without selecting one of the wizard options first. The program supports both burnproof and on-the-fly disc writing, as well as bootable ISO files, but it cannot burn double-layer DVDs, a feature promised for version 3.5, which is currently in alpha development. While it may take users some time to learn how to use it effectively, CDBurnerXP Pro is a competent tool and a great value.

    "Read the EULA - You agree to install Opencandy"

    January 23, 2014  |   By ChuckieXChan

    Version: CDBurnerXP 4.5.2.4478

    Pros

    I didn't get that far. Because I don't intentionally install malware.

    Cons

    Open Candy is spyware.

    Summary

    I wonder if you can install program, use Malware remover to remove Opencandy and still have a functional program?

    Anyone?

    "An essential program in my opinion"

    December 21, 2013  |   By LeeBonolo

    Version: CDBurnerXP 4.5.2.4478

    Pros

    You can burn data discs, DVDs, CDs, ISO images, and you can directly copy CDs and data discs from one drive to another, as well as erase rewritable discs. I believe you can also create ISOs and bootable discs.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any.

    Summary

    I've been using this for all my disc authoring needs and have yet to experience any problems. I've burned about fifty data discs and about ten ISO images, all without fault, so it's definitely a dependable program. I've had no reason to look for an alternative. Although, if you're planning to make DVDs with menus, I'm not sure if it has that feature or not.

    "Downgraded Due to Latest Bugs"

    October 11, 2013  |   By Cobalt27

    Version: CDBurnerXP 4.5.2.4291

    Pros

    Clear interface, normally ~stable, excellent considering it's freeware.

    Cons

    This latest build (or 2??)seems to have a serious bug, wherein it does not recognize that a blank CD-R is in the drive and ready to go. It acts as though it's "beginning to burn," then repgreatin Generalorts there's been a burning error and that your media is likely UNUSABLE. I've uninstalled/reinstalled, etc., but the problem returns. I'm using a Sony DVD-RW, USB-2 external drive that's normally stable. Switching USB ports, rebooting, etc. doesn't change a thing, but removing the software and installing an OLDER BUILD does.

    Summary

    Good software, but be leery of the 4.5.2.4291 version.......

    Pros

    Other than the cons I love the program.

    Cons

    I have used this program for about 3 yrs now and always liked it.
    Now I'm having a problem because when I bring up a cd into this program
    it will not list the names of the songs. It only sounds the number of songs and at the end of each file it says .cda I hope someone can help me. I never used to have this problem.
