Ashampoo,
I just looked at your Requirements page & it seems as though this software will not work with Vista. Is that correct?

I have several of Ashampoo products & each one works GREAT & they don't play games like other companies do like giving you a SHORT license etc.

Many THANKS Ashampoo.

If you're strictly using the English version, you can follow these steps to save on disk space. I know you're probably saying "I have a terabyte drive, why would it matter. It matters because there are fewer files to go through (275) when starting Ashampoo Cover Editor. You can do this with many programs, especially Ashampoo software.

First you can delete all the license*.txt and readme*.htm files in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Ashampoo\Ashampoo Cover Studio 2017 directory. Moving to the lang directory. you can delete all files that DO NOT have the *en-US* in the file name. So in the first set, you can delete all files except for ashinet3-en-US.ashLang file. In the next set, you can delete all files except for the common-en-us.ashLang file. In the next set, you can delete all files except for the common-en-us.ashLang file. In the next set, you can delete all files except for the CoverEditor-en-us.ashLang file. You can also delete the help file named CoverEditor-de-de.chm (which alone is 1.17 MB in size.). In the next set, you can delete all files except for CoverEditor-en-us.chm and CoverEditor-en-us.ashLang files. In the next set, you can delete all files except for the graphics-en-us.ashLang file. In the next set, you can delete all files except for the peru-en-us.ashLang file. In the next set, you can delete all files except for the portal-en-US.ashLang file. In the next set, you can delete all files except for the portal-en-US.ashLang. In the last set, you can delete all files except for the wxwidgets-en-us.ashLang file.

This will eliminate 275 files totaling 13.62 MB

Strange how many people seem to be saying that just because they don't burn disks any more so why should anyone else! There are many reasons. Mine, in fact, is that I shoot videos for people and then burn to DVD so they can use in their DVD player and view through a television. I make them nice covers with this programme and it works very well. Not all people want to use a computer to view videos.

I really am impressed by this software. I think it will be exactly what we need for DVDs for our church video if people don't have access to the internet or just want a hard copy. I love Ashampoo for the most part.

Thank you Ashampoo!

looking at this little program has reminded me about all the software i have had in the past when i looked at my ashampoo i have found i have 38 programs from them and still use most of them today
this one will help me as it is now possable to print what i want on the disk covers not your everyday lists of tunes but any other info i want to put on it

i would say to you all have a good look at there web site and most of the programs carry a 40 day trial and then you can extend them again if needed

also i must say if you buy any for there software you get some YIGGLES that you can put towards more programs from the extensive list i ended up with over 7000 and had about 10 programs free

the after sale team are very help full as well

thanks ASHAMPOO

Oh, ok, Ashampoo
Installed just for old days sake, I even remembered my old password for my Ashampoo Account.
But when I go to use it, it tells me that there are PREMIUM UPDATES AVALIABLE.
WHY? WHY? WHY?
So this is really just Trial ware or Adware, as it's already started with the advertisements for other products of yours. And let me guess, the adverts lead to more trial products with PREMIUM PAID FOR UPDATES?
Poor show Ashampoo.

The best program you ever made was your Core Optimiser. But this bloat ware doesn't do it for me. Uninstalled after getting serial.
Shame..

Kind regards
Richard

Thanks Ashampoo. It's nice to see you still in the market. I remember getting your software on the old PC Advisor cover mounts in the 90's.
Thanks for sharing.

To answer those below arguing about the best format. When I worked on the Sony Studio, the format of choice for SACD (Super Audio CD) is DSD. It's what we use in the Studio. If you've ended up with a Flac or MP3 version of it, that's up to you.

Enjoy the software, that's what it's about.
Unfortunately for me I will be just taking the reg and adding it to my Ashampoo account (Do we still have these?) As I have the latest Nero which has this function built straight in.

I sometimes burn DVD's for friends, so in this situation, this software would allow me to make a custom cover.
I keep the Blu-ray Java 1.1 ROM's I do though to myself.
Enjoy
Kind regards
Richard

as an alternative or add to you can check out www.freecovers.net also

freecovers.net - where if you can find the free cover - it's lo-res. If you sign up for the "premium account" then you may get better graphics - but they are NOT free.

OK - it is what it is. You can design pretty much anything for a CD/DVD. I have tried it and to be honest it is a bit 20th Century.
It is not a simple process to complete. I would have thought many of the steps could be automated.
Not for me, although generally I quite like Ashampoo software.
- uninstalled.

Digital music tends to be in mp3 format - give me wav anytime. The compression on mp3 music can be suffocating hence the preference for CD's.

I didn't see anywhere on the website or posted here that this product burns labels on to discs using the Lightscribe technology. Anybody have any info on this?

Reply   |   Comment by Gavin  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Gavin, it has a selection for Lightscribe disks. I have not tested that.

Reply   |   Comment by Christian  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Gavin, LightScribe seems to work well. I took it as far as where it calls the LightScribe "print" dialog, and its preview image matched the sample image I created in Cover Studio. That print dialog is created by LightScribe system software, so the final step of actually burning the image would be uneventful.

Ashampoo and GOTD, thank you for the software! You really should mention LightScribe in your descriptions though, since not everybody supports that technology.

I hope there are no nag dialogs for buying other software (I haven't seen any so far). That would get this package uninstalled, since I can do the same job using a combination of other software on my machine. It's just nice to have an all-in-one designer and will build goodwill towards your company. :)

Files stored on CD/DVD are digital. It is just a different storage medium and good to have more than one type of backup of important files.

I must be way behind the times but I use cd/dvd's all the time. Movies and Music. I make CDs with my favorite songs to play in my car stereo. I sing, write and play my own music and put them on disc. Exactly what does the word digital refer, seriously. Are you referring to the CLOUD? Where you buy content say, on your laptop or phone and don't have anything you have purchased? The only other think of is Flash Drives or sd-Cards? Thanks in advance!

Reply   |   Comment by Rosey  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Rosey ,
Digital means it is stored as a number, the only thing computers can work with.
Your computer uses the binary system, on and off, 0 and 1, basically switches.
In real terms your computer has a huge number of switches, programs tell them if they should be on or off.
The switches are transistors that are turned on or off, 0 and 1.
Sorry if this comment doesn't help.but this is the only way I could of think describing it. :-)

Reply   |   Comment by Tata  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Rosey , when you recorded your vocals and music onto your PC you made it digital in a process called Analogue to Digital Conversion, CD-Audio format was the first digital audio consumer product and started the first revolution away from non-digital media like vinyl records or audio cassette tapes.
Digital just means a stream of numbers representing something, could be visual information as in digital images i.e. JPG images etc or digital motion video i.e. MPEG video files in various standards or digital audio i.e. CD-Audio, Digital Audio Tapes (DAT), mini-disc, MP3 files. These are all digital forms containing Digital representations of initially Analogue information.

How many of you are still buying disc nowadays? I thought it was died sometime ago. It's almost impossible to find new laptops with CD/DVD driver now.

hardgirl,

Try upping your budget, then see what is available. The less you are willing to pay - The less you get in terms of features.

Nigel, Thanks for the advice. But i don't need to as my all data are digital. DVD/CD so yesterday!

hardgirl,

"So yesterday"? ....... Like breathing, and sunshine?

Some people like Hard copies of their work/files/movies.

hardgirl,

Seriously? You don't need because your data are digital?

Well then, why on earth would you need an optical disk lol lol lol

Reply   |   Comment by Nonya  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-6)

hardgirl, I still buy CDs. Admittedly I do rip them as soon as I get the time and I'll probably only ever listen to them via mp3 format on my phone. I guess I like to actually own a physical thing rather than just having a license to use it. Or maybe it's something to do with being middle-aged.
Having said all that I haven't burnt a disc for a long long time so I don't really need something that creates labels or covers.
I will add that I'm posting this from the MSI Apache Pro I bought in March and which has a CD/DVD drive. I think it's pretty easy to find a laptop with an optical drive so long as you're not after a super slim model.

Reply   |   Comment by Jerry  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

hardgirl,
I have a car with a CD-player(6CD) build in and sometimes I make a CD with various music on it.
Then it is handy to see what CD I put in.
Especially when it takes time to recognize the CD and play it, you don't want to guess the CD.

hardgirl,

"It's almost impossible to find new laptops with CD/DVD driver now."

Because they add height or thickness, & the preferred style for many is thin -- the thinner the better. So they stick the laptop DVD & Blu-ray drives & burners in external housings with USB connections, which are fairly popular, especially I think for people that travel, e.g. for work. That way you have thin & light during the day, play your DVDs or Blu-ray that night. I bought my Asus USB 3.0 DVD burner for $10 after MIR @ Newegg -- works great, including with my tablet.

hardgirl, everything ON my hard drives are also backed up to CD/DVD/BluRay. Everything.

IF you haven't any backups, one day you will find (to your dismay) why people still use optical media.

If you're using cloud - you're trusting someone else's computer & their backups. I prefer knowing I have here at arms reach, everything digital that I value.

Reply   |   Comment by John  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Thanks a lot for caring me. But i still won't buy CD/DVD. I have something called Flash drive/Thumb drive and this tiny device can store 64 GB data and that's equal to 13 pieces of DVDs. So good luck with you guys :)

Reply   |   Comment by hardgirl  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-8)

hardgirl, suit yourself - I've had a few of those thumb drives go south & took all their data with them.
Things are reliable - until you're 100% totally dependent - then when you absolutely "do or die" have to have them - el crasho.

They're great for short term transfers. Before "thumb drives" I used re-recordable cd to port data back and forth. If the thumb drives were as good as we'd all like them to be, nobody would need a multi -platter hard drive.

I've also got 12 TB of Hard drive - for quick & easy access - but they also are backed up to optical.
Some things - when you lose them, there is no recovering them. And sites where you thought you could go back & download them again - have a habit of not being there any more. Had a 1TB drive die, took me 4 months or hunting to recover the data. With my optical disk library, might take the better part of a day.

But - my personal experiences aside,
Best of "luck" to you.
