Editors' Review

by   / December 15, 2013

BurnAware Free completely handles any burned disc, whether you need music, a movie, or something much more complicated. It does it with a straightforward interface and even lets you start from scratch with its deletion feature. This program is far superior to any burner that only handles just one or two types of discs.

BurnAware Free burns discs of plenty of different varieties, including DVDs, CDs, Blu-rays, and even boot discs. No matter which style of disc you're trying to make, you can find it with ease, thanks to the program's clean graphic interface. While it doesn't look all that creative, the interface makes the program remarkably easy to use for someone new to the process. BurnAware Free even lets you erase a used disc so you can turn it into something new. The program isn't remarkably fast or slow; it took us about six minutes to burn a CD and about 45 minutes to create a DVD disc. That could change if you have a faster drive or computer, obviously. The program's install process tucks an AVG toolbar into the download and tries to make itself the default action for your computer's autorun prompt, so make sure you uncheck those if you don't want them.

This program is worth the download just because it erases burned discs. The fact that it can burn just about any type of disc you would need is a major bonus. BurnAware Free is very close to a must-have utility for anyone who burns discs regularly.
