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.

"A champ except it does not support the AHCI interface"

April 29, 2012  |  By jharris1993

 |  Version: CDBurnerXP


I have used this software for any number of years now - really don't remember - and it has been everything I need and more.

Though the interface is a bit "noisy" (as the reviewer mentioned), it provides a wealth of options to make sure what you wanted to burn is precisely what you actually burn.


The glaring rock-in-the-road for this software is its lack of support for the newer AHCI interface for SATA/eSATA drives. Actually, that's not entirely true. If you have a computer that supports, (or natively just is), AHCI compliant, you will not be able to make compilations with this software. You will still be able to burn ISO files and other kinds of CD/DVD disks.

The lack of AHCI capability is becoming more and more of an issue since most modern computers either come with the BIOS set to AHCI by default, or there is no setting at all, and you are stuck with AHCI.

Why this is an issue:
If your computer is set to AHCI by default - and you change it to IDE - there's an excellent chance that Windows won't boot.

There is a growing number of computers that don't even offer that choice - your SATA interface is AHCI, period.

Though AHCI is the more modern - and more capable - interface, CD Burner XP's drivers do not support it. An explanation why can be found on their web-site.


A great burning software package if you don't use the more modern AHCI hard-drive interface standard.

"Better than Nero because it's free"

April 16, 2012  |  By codemancjackson

 |  Version: CDBurnerXP


Lots of options and great interface if you have used Nero before this will be very similar to you


does NOT let you choose burning speed determines the fastest one and uses that no option to change it. Very LIMITED recognition of files that can be converted to ISO file better off getting a video to ISO converter separate that has more flexibility.


Great Product if you do not want to pay for Nero, not quite as good as Nero but very close has great options and easy interface to work with. I am Keeping the product is has a lot of uses that I will need it for, overall solid product!

"It worked fine!"

April 12, 2012  |  By topfmeister

 |  Version: CDBurnerXP


It was free, downloaded and installed quick and easy
And worked well.


I did not figure out if it could label the songs when burning CD's to CD audio format- It just listed numerical track numbers.


I just needed a CD audio burning program for a 1 time use
and this program did the trick- Thank you!!!
