ΙmgBurn is a free CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning program, featuring several ‘Modes’ for performing different tasks: * Read a disc to an image file; Create an image file from files on your computer or network – or you can write the files directly to a disc; Write an image file to a disc; 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; Put your drive / media to the test!
ImgBurn supports BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI image formats. 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. It will even let you load your audio files from a playlist, if you drag and drop your playlist in the selection pane, something that most dedicated-to-audio free CD burners don’t support. Here is also a guide on how to burn Audio CDs with ImgBurn.
You can use ImgBurn 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.
ΙmgBurn supports Unicode folder/file names.
There is an image queue system for 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 to store your favorite burn speed settings on a per ‘Media ID’ basis, right down to a drive by drive level.
ImgBurn is a solid trustworthy application.
