ImgBurn is a lightweight CD/DVD/HD DVD/Blu-ray burning application designed to be easy to use yet have advanced options when needed. Video "Starter Guide to Using ImgBurn" available. ImgBurn on MajorGeeks is a clean installer without OpenCandy distributed with permission.
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 it 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.
It supports a wide range of image file formats - including BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG, and PDI.
It can burn Audio CDs 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 an 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 into any problems if you're using an international character set.
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.
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 to store your favorite 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/analyzed using DVDInfoPro.
ImgBurn is designed to work perfectly straight out of the box, advanced users will appreciate just how configurable it is.
