Free CD DVD Burner is a suite of disc burning and ripping applications provided for free.
The following utilities are included in this bundle: a data disc burning tool, a tool to create video DVDs, VCDs, and SVCDs, an audio CD ripper, an audio CD making utility, and some additional tools like a disc eraser or some utilities that let you create, burn or rip ISO disc image files. A device information gathering utility is also available.
All the included tools come with wizard-like interfaces that enable even complete beginners to use them without any problem. Anyway, even if they’re intuitive and easy-to-use, it’s not exactly clear what each of them does, as their purpose isn’t sufficiently clear explained in the main window. There’s, for example, a “Data burner” listed in the additional tools as well, and there’s nowhere explained how it is different from the main “Data CD/DVD burning tool”. Another downside of Free CD DVD Burner is the fact that its installer attempts to make you download and install unneeded applications or to change your browser’s default settings (adware-like behavior).
Anyway, since it’s free, Free CD DVD Burner is worthy of being taken into consideration when you’re looking for some neat, handy and easy-to-use disc burning applications.
