"Do NOT install IMGBurn! Installer has Malware!"

January 20, 2014  |  By pc_g33k_1337

 |  Version: ImgBurn 2.5.5

Pros

The actual program works how it used to. But......

Cons

I know you want to install it based on your past awesome experiences too. JUST DON'T. The installer is bundled with malware that you have to carefully un-select during installation. It's very sneaky and you have to pay absolute attention to what you are doing, but even then I wound up with two pieces of malware after installation. The actual program still functions nicely, but the installer absolutely crumbles this once top of the line program. Screw this.

Summary

Stay away. You have been warned. You'll waste a lot of time running scans to clean the infections and verify they are gone. If you are really good at "Where's Waldo", maybe you'll catch all the sneaky tactics used in the installer. I guess I'm in the market for a new burning software. Bummer, this was a good one.

"Awesome freeware"

September 20, 2011  |  By moe04

 |  Version: ImgBurn 2.5.5

Pros

Very good way to burn ISOs and DVD movies. Works very well with DVD Flick for burning authoring video files. Plays nice little music when it is finished and works very fast also.

Cons

None what so ever

Summary

Maybe the best burning freeware on the planet.

"Works for burning ISO images & regular files to CD/DVD"

July 26, 2011  |  By supersurf

 |  Version: ImgBurn 2.5.5

Pros

Application works and it's free (thanks to the developers)!

Cons

It's little more complicated and requires extra steps (ie. converting .cue files to iso before proceeding to burn file)

Summary

The Roxio app included on my laptop was just too lame and buggy; wouldn't burn images onto my dvd. I really like my old NTI CD Maker software that was on my desktop but I lost the app when my hard drive died.

ImgBurn has more settings and the interface will be a bit unfamiliar compared to the other ripping software most folks may have used - but just take the plunge and experiment with it. That's what I did and finally figured out the steps when I used it to burn Ubuntu ISO files and also regular files from my computer or other dvds to disk.

"Worked flawlessly for me"

July 13, 2011  |  By brentkend

 |  Version: ImgBurn 2.5.5

Pros

Easy to use, worked

Cons

None noted

Summary

I had to create multiple DVDs of a family movie from an m4v file (from iMovie). I used DVD Flick to create the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS files from the mp4 file, then used ImgBurn to create multiple copies of the DVD. I found some helpful instructions on AfterDawn and ClubMyce.com and was able to quickly crank out 4 DVDs for the family.

"Not stable. Wasted a CD and uninstalled."

June 30, 2011  |  By elThomaso

 |  Version: ImgBurn 2.5.5

Pros

- Small, easy to use,
- no ads
- free to use

Cons

- Not stable
- Does not do what it promised (crashed and killed CD)
- No direct CD copy button available (user has to create image, burn image, then delete image)
- No languages other than english selectable

Summary

Created an image from an audio CD. Then tried to burn this new image. Lots of error messages appeared. Pressed the cancel button. The software crashed, the CD became useless. Uninstalled the software.

No recommendation, all this did for me is kill a fresh writeable CD. There are enough other software packages available which are free as well and actually work. Try ashampoo burning studio free.

Updated on Jun 30, 2011

I may have to add that the software is mainly targeted as an image burner. It may be better suited than other packages for this purpose. However it should have been able to burn an image that it created itself. It was unable to do that, and I did not give it a second attempt.
