Editors' Review

+

As fast as its name implies, this DVD burner is an intuitive, reliable program with just enough features to make it appeal to beginners and experienced users alike. Cheetah DVD Burner can create both writable and re-writable CD and DVD discs. Additionally, it is able to create bootable discs, build and burn to disc ISO files, as well as create data, video, or audio discs.

The program interface is very straightforward, with clear menu options and icons big enough that even a great-grandmother could love. Simply choose your action and then drag and drop files into the program window, and you're ready to burn. We were most impressed with Cheetah's ability to create dual-level DVDs. The program also includes a decent CD ripper and converter. Overall, with its feature set and functional interface, Cheetah DVD Burner is a good option for anyone looking for a stress-free way to create CDs and DVDs.

"Free version does not work"

April 18, 2015  |  By JayBird01

 |  Version: Cheetah DVD Burner 2.57

Pros

If not working at all is a pro, than this piece of garbage is great!

Cons

Upon first use the program stopped responding. Upon second attempt the software crashed and wouldn't even load again. Thought the negative reviews on this site were to be attributed to people that didn't know what they were doing, but no..... this software is trash

Summary

Don't waste your time.

"Wouldn't burn CD or DVD"

March 30, 2015  |  By elrlar2003

 |  Version: Cheetah DVD Burner 2.57

Pros

No pros because it wouldn't work.

Cons

In setting up a new Windows 8.1 computer, based on the good reviews here I downloaded Cheetah and installed. I couldn't get it to burn a CD or DVD. It recognized my DVD drives but consistently wouldn't read from the source drive. Reinstalled several times with no success. Because of the good reviews, I made the mistake of buying it without trying. Bad mistake. I then purchased, downloaded and installed Nero and that works wonderfully well.

"Surprisingly simple..."

December 29, 2014  |  By LamentingPickle

 |  Version: Cheetah DVD Burner 2.57

Pros

- Able to decode/convert MP3s to CD audio without a hitch.

Cons

- 15 Day Free Trial (but that's not a con to the program itself, you just have to pay for it if you like it and want to keep using it).

Summary

Just bought a used minivan (a 2003 Odyssey) and as you would guess, the factory head unit is still there, just AM/FM/CD (no mp3/wma support), no Bluetooth, USB ports, aux audio ports, etc. NOTHING. The radio started to drive me crazy since I haven't really listened to radio stations in the past 8 years, so I was desperate to find a program to convert/burn some of my MP3 files to CD audio files ASAP, while my new head unit comes in that will have all the nice things like Bluetooth capability, a USB port, etc. I don't really care much for audio CDs to begin with, they came out when I was a kid but now I'm a solid state addict. I searched a few nights and finally came upon The Cheetah. I don't know how well it will burn/make DVDs since that is not what I downloaded it for. I was able to make 2 CDs and I tested them and they work fine. The interface is so simple, reminds me of the Windows 3.1 GUI from way back. Just a few buttons and lousy graphics, but it WORKS! YAY! Of course, when you install it, you have to go slow and make sure you read what your checking on, if you leave a box checked or check the wrong one you will no doubt be inundated with Yahoo crap. Just go slow and you will have ZERO TOOLBARS and CRAPWARE, other people that get the toolbars just kept hitting NEXT and NEXT in succession without reading. I won't be needing it past 15 days but if you would need it for longer I would guess it's probably worth paying for it. Only con I found was you can't drag/drop files directly from the mobile device (I have an LG Volt) to the burn window, you get a dumb message that only certain file types are accepted, you have to copy to HDD and then drag them. Not a bad program for free!

"I should have read this more"

March 16, 2014  |  By sqrach

 |  Version: Cheetah DVD Burner 2.57

Pros

After getting past the usually cnet spam (decline, decline, decline....) This did not seem to attempt installing any other nonsense. Then again it is only trial software for 15 days.

Cons

This is a DVD burner which I confused as a DVD maker. If you have video files it won't do anything more than make a data disc out of them which you can likely do by default with windows anyway.
You'll need to look into Cheetah DVD "Maker" if you want to make a dvd from files.
It's difficult to figure out what it is going to do.
Luckily I did not start because it starts you off to burn a data disc.
After closing the windows and starting a project it has "create DVD" which says you need the other software.
What good is a dvd burner alone that you would pay 20$ for?

Summary

I googled fast free dvd burner. It is free but I did not notice the trial. My own fault. Also assumed a burner would make a dvd especially when one feedback said it converts many file types.

"Very handy program for data backups"

June 04, 2013  |  By rickkevey

Pros

Our company has a site license and we use the cheetah dvd burner every day. when work is completed we back it up on a DVD. It is nice to have a have copy of your files. The program is very useful because it has an option to import the last session, of your burned files so you can continually add new files to the DVD.

Cons

Not cons it does its job

Summary

Very handy program for data backups

"Locks up after trying to add files"

May 25, 2013  |  By sdtex

 |  Version: Cheetah DVD Burner 2.57

Pros

Cool looking logo

Cons

It locks up everytime I try to add a file to burn and have to use Task Manager to close. Every single time. Their website is terrible with a few FAQ which tells you how to use and no real support except to send them an e-mail. Sent an e-mail and haven't heard back yet. Is there aywhere to go for help??
