Tiny Burner

Softland's Tiny Burner not only burns CD and DVD optical discs but also Blu-ray discs: both single- and double-layer media. It's compatible with most optical disc drives, including the latest BD burners. Tiny Burner also creates ISO images of existing discs, meaning you can use it to create backup copies of your movies and games. Tiny Burner also turns your disc burner into the functional equivalent of an external backup drive, except the only cost is the price of a blank disc: Unlike an external hard drive, Tiny Burner is free. This easy-to-use disc-burning tool works in both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows systems equipped with an optical disk burner.

As soon as we opened Tiny Burner, we saw something we liked. Not the plain but efficient sidebar-and-window layout of the compact user interface, though that's nicely rendered, too. No, it was the simple, draggable Drop Target, which displayed both the Added Files total and the Total Size in megabytes. It's large enough to be easy to find and hit but small and unobtrusive enough to leave open on the desktop; we could change the color and transparency in the program's Options, too, as well as change our Log, Burn, Language, and other settings. One useful button on the Options sheet saved our project as an INI file; the Tools menu entries let us create and burn ISO images, too. Tiny Burner's features, options, and basic operation differ little from other mainstream optical disc utilities, so many users will be able to just start using it. But the Help menu includes a substantial Help file as well as Web-based resources for any user who wants more information.

The software opened the first time with a New Project ready to create and save. A folder of saved clips we've used to burn discs before served as our source material, though we also dragged files into the Drop Target. When our project was ready, Tiny Burner sent it to our optical drive to be burned to disc. While the final product depends on your hardware, Tiny Burner certainly held its end up.

Developer's Description

Tiny Burner is a highly configurable free dvd burning software. Supports most popular hardware burners and can write to all types of optical media, including CD, DVD and Blu-ray (single and double layer). You can use it not only to write data to CD/DVD/BD, but also if you want to create ISO images from existing discs. This way you can back-up your favorite DVD/Blu-ray/CD discs with movies, games or other data, so you won't wear the original out. Tiny Burner can be used as a backup program too, meaning all the valuable information that you have on your computer can be stored on optical discs just so that you will have an alternative in case your drive will die. It uses buffer underrun technology, so that you will have the certainty when writing a disc that it won't be ruined. After burning a discs it will verify the written data to ensure that everything is ok and data is readable. With Tiny Burner you can use writing sessions too, meaning if a CD, DVD or Blu-ray is re-writable you can burn data in a session, leave the disc open, and after that continue burning other information in a separate session. After installing it you'll also be able to see information regarding the drive that does the burning, as well as information about the disc you are writing information to. This is important so that you know how much information fits on your discs and how many you need to burn all your data. By default it burns the DVD, Blu-ray or CD at the maximum speed, but you have the option to change that to a lower value (for instance if you need to be sure that the data will be readable on an older CD/DVD/BD reader). Tiny Burner supports all types of optical media, which means that you'll be able to write using it to: CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD-R DL (dual layer), DVD+R/RW, DVD+R DL (dual layer), BD-R/RE, BD-R/RE DL, HD-DVD-R/RW and DVD-RAM. This free burner runs on Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000 and 2008/2003/2000 Server. It's free for both personal and commercial use.
