Which one is your favourite CD burning software?
Burnaware Free for me
cd burner xp
Beside using Ashampoo, sometime use built-in "burner" example burning mp3 CD using Easy CD-DA Extractor
Nero 7 in a custom installation = lighter.
Nero Lite that came with my DVD Burner
Nero Lite for me too
ImgBurn. Free and complete, does the job very well.
However, because I rarely need it, I don't maintain it installed.
Others (Win 7 Burning software)
Ashampoo here (got a free licence for the full product a while back).
None, because it takes too much time, gives little space and burned DVDs can stop working any time. I prefer USB, external HDD, internet storage and so on.
Easy CD-DA Extractor by Poikosoft
Ashampoo and ImgBurn
InfraRecorder for me. Portable, simple, small (9mb on disk/usb stick).
Supports ISO R/W, format, erase, copy, data, audio, and video writing, has a true 64 bit model as well. Simply the best for everyday recording. No cover printing but that's not a big loss for me.
I used to use Nero, and really liked it until it became bloated.
I have used Deepburner for simple jobs many times.
I use cdburnerXP quite often, but it feels rather sluggish and uses a rather high amount of cpu, almost to where I don't do much else while it is burning.
I use imgburn the most, likely because I tend to do a lot with .iso files.
On a side note, since this is a burning poll, what software do you burn audio cd with. Burn mp3 to audio cd to play in car/home cd-player. I have pretty bad luck with most all media and most all software, aka I have a lot of coasters
What settings are crucial? Are the "audio cds" actually different? I don't get it really, why one cd-player will really dislike most everything I burn, yet usually when someone else makes me a cd, it works perfectly. Hardware should not be the issue here. Any thoughts.
All the integrated Windows 7 Burning options: Windows DVD Burning, Windows ISO Burning Tool, Windows Media Player. Windows System RestoreDisc Tool, Windows Backup Tool.
Actually Windows 7 can burn everything I want too, I only have one issue with Windows 7 burning: burn a .divx/xvid and a subtitle file into a DVD. For that I use ConvertXtoDVD.
That is also the only thing WMP12 is really missing, proper support for subtitles. I already removed MediaMonkey from my pc and just using WMP12 for music now. But I still have to use VLC for movies with subtitles.
Before I had Windows 7 I really liked two free burning programs: BurnAware Free (there is a beta of the new version 3 out now) and InfraRecorder.
Used to be Nero but lately it's been ImgBurn, because it's light and effective, and I mostly burn iso's. Similar to Sully's situation, I guess
Burnaware Home Version
and Burnaware 3.0 BETA right now
For burning mp3 to cd I have used MediaMonkey Gold and it has always worked pretty well.
Minding software/hardware support, media and burn-speed - there's no reason one shouldn't be able to ace every project.
K3b in Linux & Ashampoo in Windows
Ashampoo Burning Studio ( i have the full licence from computer newspaper)
Did it do this on all media or specific "music" discs or some specific brand?
Did you use default settings? There are a number I have played with but not found any difference in success ratio.
Thanks for the info.
I use ImgBurn under WINE and Brasero.
