The age when only a few select burning technologies reigned supreme is over, for now there are open source types of software that have no restrictions as to what they can burn. Media enthusiasts can now write on anything from CD to DVD and BlueRay multimedia formats. Besides, one can create data discs using the above three formats. One of the newcomers in the niche of this disc-writing technology is BurnAware.
The product is available without a charge and can perform all of the above functions. This is because it has a modular makeup, which means that one can modify it, depending on whether the task is making a data disc or creating a multimedia disc.
The specifications of this media freeware that make it accessible to almost any computer-literate user include the following:
• Unlimited writing capability on data discs, including on Blue-Ray.
• Enhanced ability to burn sound content on a CD, DVD or Jukebox. The latter is a Blue-ray function that is compatible with the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file.
• Capability to make and record ISO images on the disc. It synchronizes with a range of image formats, which makes it an open source converter.
• It offers the user the ability to create brand new files, or derive them from the local disc for recording purposes.
There is also a rewriting feature that can overwrite recorded discs. It has support for hardware systems, from IDE to USB and a couple of others. A final winning feature of this software for Windows OS is that it has a simple, intuitive interface that works with diverse languages. The latter function is capable due to its compatibility with a Unicode for language formats.
In the world of software, there is always a rival. This explains why perfection and provision of freeware is important, as the following comparison shows: ImgBurn is another free provider of this technology that can write on any data or multimedia CD, besides supporting nearly a dozen image applications. However, it comes short in favor of the product, under review, in the fact that it is more for advanced than rookie computer users.
Because of its dynamic features for writing on different types of discs and open source capabilities like supporting multiple image formats, this software deserves a place as a great media product. It garners 100%, on a percentage scale, because of its simple interface with complex functions. The fact that it supports image, video, data and audio formats also increases its rating as a rounded product.
