Editors' review

This straightforward CD-burning utility offers all the essentials and handles its main job without incident, though its strange design makes creating a disc a somewhat convoluted process. Unlike most similar programs we've tested, Cool CD Burner doesn't have a built-in pane for browsing your PC, requiring you to open Windows Explorer; find the correct folder; pull up the program's interface; and drag and drop music, data, or ISO files into the queue. Other than that, the application is easy to use, featuring clearly labeled icons for erasing and burning discs, as well as a drop-down box for selecting write speeds of up to 32X. In our tests, the program didn't demonstrate supersonic speeds but burned discs reasonably quickly. Happily, the trial version allows you to burn as many discs as you want for 15 days, much less restrictive than many demo burners on the scene. If you can live with its annoying design miscue, Cool CD Burner makes a decent choice.

    "Add or remove track, jumble track list. Music skips."

    November 25, 2010   |   By CaperGrrl

    Version: Cool CD Burner 2.45

    Pros

    Simple, intuitive.

    Cons

    If you add or remove a track when creating a specific playlist order, it jumbles it up. Even on the lowest burning setting, 10X, tracks skip. Could be my computer, or that you should leave computer alone completely when burning.

    Summary

    I had high expectations for this program, the editor and user ratings were high. But either my computer is slow and messed up (which I suppose is possible) or the problems I described above are typical. I don't even think the software has buffer underrun protection. Trying Free East CD DVD Burner next.
