ImgBurn is a lightweight CD / DVD / HD
DVD / Blu-ray burning application that
everyone should have in their toolkit!
It has several 'Modes', each one for
performing a different task:
Read - Read a disc to an image file
Build - Create an image file from
files on your computer or network - or
you can write the files directly to a
disc Write - Write an image file to a
disc Verify - Check a disc is 100%
readable. Optionally, you can also
have ImgBurn compare it against a
given image file to ensure the actual
data is correct Discovery - Put your
drive / media to the test! Used in
combination with DVDInfoPro, you can
check the quality of the burns your
drive is producing ImgBurn supports
a wide range of image file formats -
including BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG,
ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI.
It can burn Audio CD's from any file
type supported via DirectShow / ACM -
including AAC, APE, FLAC, M4A, MP3,
MP4, MPC, OGG, PCM, WAV, WMA and WV.
You can use it to build DVD Video
discs (from a VIDEO_TS folder), HD DVD
Video discs (from a HVDVD_TS folder)
and Blu-ray Video discs (from a BDAV /
BDMV folder) with ease.
It supports Unicode folder/file names,
so you shouldn't run in to any
problems if you're using an
international character set.
ImgBurn supports all the Microsoft
Windows OS's - Windows 95, Windows 98,
Windows Me, Windows NT4, Windows 2000,
Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows
Vista, Windows 2008 and Windows 7
(including all the 64-bit versions).
If you use Wine, it should also run on
Linux and other x86-based Unixes.
It's a very flexible application with
several advanced features that are
often lacking in other tools,
especially when it comes to burning
DVD Video discs. It supports all the
latest drives without the need for
updates (including booktype /
bitsetting / advanced settings on many
of the major ones - i.e. BenQ, LiteOn,
LG, NEC, Plextor, Samsung, Sony).
There is an image queue system for
when you're burning several images
(which you can automatically share
between multiple drives if you have
more than one) and an easy-to-use
layer break selection screen for
double layer DVD Video jobs. The
Automatic Write Speed feature allows
you store your favourite burn speed
settings on a per 'Media ID' basis,
right down to a drive by drive level.
Data captured during the burn (write
speed, buffer levels etc) can be
displayed / analysed using DVDInfoPro.
Whilst ImgBurn is designed to work
perfectly straight out of the box,
advanced users will appreciate just
how configurable it is.
Oh and let's not forget the best thing
about it.... it's 100% FREE ;-)
