    "Very Slow on Older Hardware; Fails to Copy CD's Exactly"

    May 24, 2014  |   By PiratePete52

    Version: CDBurnerXP 4.5.3.4746

    Pros

    Seems mostly to do what it claims.

    Cons

    Read from and wrote to optical drives much more slowly than the hardware was capable of doing.

    Did not make an exact copy of an audio CD; changed the date/time stamp.

    Summary

    I installed this software on a 10-year old Dell mini-tower with a Pentium 4 processor. The computer had been updated from Windows XP to Windows 7 with a recent, clean reinstall. The RAM was maxed-out at 4 GB and the latest BIOS installed.

    Using either a DVD drive or a 48x CD drive, and 52x Verbatim CD-R's, a straight copy of a commercial audio CD took about ten minutes. That was approximately 10x performance.

    I initially assumed this was a system problem. I spent hours on the net searching for a solution, verifying DMA settings, checking for updated drivers, and even tried disabling the anti-virus and firewall software. Nothing helped.

    I then installed Ashampoo Burning Studio FREE, and the problem disappeared. The same disk copy operation took about four minutes.

    Another problem with this software is that the date/time stamp on the copied audio tracks was the current date and time. As a result, Windows Media Player did not recognize the album. The Ashampoo software made an exact copy of the original CD.

    "Very well designed and constructed"

    May 4, 2014  |   By Mark R. Jones

    Version: CDBurnerXP 4.5.3.4746

    Pros

    Easy to use, GUI is very straightforward, performs the functions quickly with status display to let you know where it is at in the processes. For my purposes, (see below), it worked perfectly.

    Cons

    None that I have found thus far.

    Summary

    I needed this for a Linux ISO Live CD, (Linux Newbie). As I see it with all of the other features packed into this I can see many other uses for this.

    "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.
