A great program available is BurnFree This program supports many different formats and even burns ISO files. Compatable with almost 2000 CD and DVD drives. Easy to use interface, you can start burning with as little as two clicks! Will also print covers.
Next up is CDburnerXP This one supports tons of formats and will even burn Blueray and HD DVDs!, multi language support. You can also create bootable disks, ISO disks and some simple cover printing. A great clean interface too. This is an award winning program, you should really try this one.
An amazing program to try is DeepBurner, this program has tons of features, but make sure you downlaod the free version. This will create ISOs, data and audio CDs and DVDs, bootable disks, This can do printing of covers and sleeves as well. The Pro version has many more features, i’d take a look at it if you do lots of burning.
If you make lots of audio CDs, then CDRDAO is for you. This free program is a great program to use if you just want to burn audio CDs withough a lot of fluff. This program features DAO, which means disk at once, this feature allows you to get rid of those 2 second pauses between audio tracks.
So there you have it, four free, downloadable, CD and DVD burning programs that you can install on a windows PC. I suggest you try them all and use your favorite, There really is no reason to go out there and spend 20, 30 or even 100 dollars on a commercial CD or DVD burning program.
