Okay, further to my previous comment, I have now found Blu Ray under the Data option and ISO creation under Tools, I was looking at the options under Video.

Cheers, but not what I expected. - cable.

I must be missing something, some of the key features I looked for were Blu-Ray, HDVD, ISO creation etc. and couldn't find those and some other functions as stated in the authors comment:AV Burning Pro is a powerful disc suite for burning CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD media, copy audio CD & create ISO images.

cheers - cable

#12. To do what you want, you need a video editing /authoring program. After authoring, you can use a video burning software so that it will work on DVD player. Google "Top 5 free video editing software programs".

Thanks Rob (#7) for doing the homework. There are 6 hours left in this giveway so share this with your friends. I normally do not post yet in reference to avmediasoft and any other software it is imperative for us to be vigilant regarding the integrity of the software Developers and their products we put on our systems. GAOTD gives us an opportunity to test software but it is up to us to be aware. We have to ask ourselves if we want apps from developers that post info that does not match reality as Rob has pointed out. GAOTD cannot make *sure* software is reputable or safe, that is our job. This site is a great way for small developers that have their heart in the right place get an audience as well as very slick operators trying to push their wares on GAOTD and us. There is excellent info to be read here @GAOTD. Good practice before every install:

1. Not only make a restore point but use ERUNT to back up the registry exactly as it was (which restore does not do) in case a program or Themida messes up. Research: https://larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/

2. Use a highly rated AV and firewall like Avast and Privatefirewall with 2nd and 3rd opinions like MBAM, Emsisoft & Superantispyware. Download the VirusTotal Uploader and right click an .exe or file > send to > VirusTotal and get a report from 42 antivirus engines as well as a right click url checker. A good Firewall will not allow any transactions unless you ok them and train it to allow programs.

3. Last but not least on Firefox (IE is still not as safe). addons:
Research: Adblock Plus and important subscriptions - https://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions
CsFire, NoScript, Cookie Monster, Priv3, Click&Clean and/or Better Privacy to clean "supercookies" that never go away

Charley #12 when i say load up automatically like a movie DVD with on screen menu's etc. THAT is what is on the Disc you Created if you chose to create from Wondersoft or other company's software.

Charley #12 ok the simplest way to show photo's on a dvd player is to burn a DATA DVD, Make some folders first on your hard drive, give the folders names to suit whatever types of pictures you add to them. say Family Photos or Holiday Photos, whatever you like, Jpeg format is best for photos and standard AVI for movie clips, Why? because the vast amount of dvd players have these two Basic Formats.

When your completed data dvd is loaded into a home dvd player photos don't usualy show first the dvd players will most likely show a menu of
the folders you created on the disc, now use the remote control to enter a folder and select photos to play 1 at a time or as a slide show depending on the dvd players features.

Wondersoft and a few others have software to make photo disc's with fancy background's and menus something like College Studio.
These software create a disc with menus and most have a photo Album look to them, the good thing about them is they load up automatically like a movie DVD with on screen menu's etc.

AV burning Pro can create your Data Dvd's if you want to choose the First option i mentioned first = (the simplest way).
P.S. some dvd players and set top boxes even some TV's now have USB ports, you can add photo's on a USB memory stick and view your photo's through these device's onto your TV.

Mark.

Can anyone tell me what prog will allow burning two small Dvds on one disk keeping their menus intact but adding a menu that allows me to choose disk 1 or 2?
Seen Dvds like this for yrs but have yet to find a prog that does it.

Thanks for the software. Have several short videos lasting less than 30 minutes and hated wasting a DVD, like the option to burn to CD.
Charley just Google or Bing your question "My burning problem is to burn pictures on a cd or dvd and play them on my dvd player on my tv." You will get several answers like this http://www.ehow.com/how_8195265_copy-photos-cd-watch-tv.html

My burning problem is to burn pictures on a cd or dvd and play them on my dvd player on my tv. they will never play. i am the custodian of all of our family pictures, big family, and take the dvd’s to other peoples houses when we have family functions and most of the time they do not play. i have used format factory but never sure which to select mpg etc. will this program burn so i can play thru a dvd on the tv and what should i know. thanks for any comments.

If you are playing the disc on a home dvd player this program will not help you since it does not author the files. "format factory  is nothing more than a converter. You need a slideshow creator software like Wondershare Slideshow Delux. Once you have created the slideshow. Then, you will need to use an authoring software to convert the video file to NTSC or PAL. It will depend on where you live as to whether you need NTSC or PAL. PAL is mostly for Asian nations. You can see the list HERE.

Been looking for burning software for a while now as a formatted my PC a couple of weeks ago.

Works as promised, made ISO's, erased RW-DVD's, burned DVD's.

Clean, easy to use program. Found nothing weird or annoying.

Thanks

According to the error log posted with comment #3, this must be based on the old StarBurn program, FWIW. Used to use it until I discovered Ashampoo which gave me fewer problems and also less complicated to navigate between functions, FYI. For those of you who may not know, you can usually get one or another versions of Ashampoo Burning Studio free. Just Google it. They will send you plenty of email, however, unless you opt out of their "service letters," which is pretty straightforward.

This looks a lot like Nero to start with, but it's a little more complex. It could confuse a novice.

I tried it in Windows 8 RP.

Some of the text lines appear to be truncated by the side of the box.

I put in a back disk after getting the warning that there was no media/disk and it didn't recognize it. I had to go back and re-select disk burning before it found it.

Also, on Data DVD it couldn't find my files so I couldn't burn anything. It just gave me a black folder called NEW.

Since it wouldn't work for me I wound up uninstalling it.

After posting the iso issue above, I used ImgBurn to create the iso with the same files I attempted to use AV Burning Pro to create. ImgBurn created it without flaw in less than 2 minutes. The properties windows displayed "iso" format and offered the option to change the default program.  See screenshot HERE.

My Ad-Aware lit up when I went to visit the AVMedia website.

It's set at a higher level of security that protects me with online purchases from less than reputable vendors. Not necessarily a big deal since I don't know the criteria which got them black listed. I changed my settings and checked it out.

• Fake awards - In my opinion, a 5 Cow award means something special. There is plenty of great software that only got 3 or 4. AVMedia claims they got a 5. The problem is that not a single program from their site exists on tucows that I can find (please correct me if I'm wrong)
So Next big player on the list - CNET Editor's Chioce (a hefty claim) - Not a single program from these folks on their site either.

So I do two Internet Searches - Bing and Yahoo. AVMediaSoft products are only featured on a few obscure sites - and giving them the benefit of the doubt I checked the link to Windows7Downloads: 5 users gave it a decent rating

Sorry AVMediaSoft, if I would have just loaded your program, I would be suffering an anxiety attack about what the heck I just put in my computer after that degree of deception (again, please correct me if I'm wrong)

So, Moving Forward:

Perhaps I should trust my Ad-Aware business warning on this one.

As an alternative, Ashampoo offers a completely free, Blu-Ray capable burner on their site - it's called Burning Studio 6, and contains the features you need. It can be found by browsing their download page.

Ok... After further review and in addition to my comment above, the iso creation feature simply doesn't work properly. I tried several different files compilations. None of which were produced in iso format even though it said completed successfully. When right clicking on the output file there is no file type listed and no option to change the program the file is opened with. I attempted to load the alleged image with ImgBurn and the file was not recognized.

I am not new to iso images by any means. I am a computer tech and use iso images almost daily to install Windows and other software. I sometimes build them from scratch. Some are bootable and others are not. I never have a problem when using ImgBurn to build the iso. This is a major setback to your software.

O goodie ... I've been needing another burning alternative. Thanks GA, you're the best!

SERIOUSLY?? What programmer in their right mind would think "you know, what the world needs is another burning alternative"??

I understand that it's difficult to come up with these offerings, day after day and I don't expect to see an MS Word offered here but wouldn't it be better to just skip a day or two than to offer this kinda rubbish that no one should need or want?

I had burned both video files earlier with a different software without any problem. I later found that the issue was with the programs navigational abilities or, should I say, lack thereof. It did not allow for the expanding of folders when navigating to the video files to be burned. I copied and pasted the Video_TS folder to the desktop and was then able to navigate to the files and burn the DVD. I will say the program is light on resources which is a huge plus. Most all DVD burning software eat away at resources. Doesn't matter what your computer specs are. Nevertheless, the software does not author which is a major set back. In fact, it instructs the user to use a different software to author prior to burning. I cannot imagine why I would want to have one software for authoring and another for burning when I can get one software that does it all. I will say that burning was fast. Very fast. Less than 5 minutes to burn an almost 2 hour movie and cpu never went above 14% even with other programs running at the same time. The DVD authoring issue will eventually be a non-issue since most newer DVD players now support Mpeg rather than VOB. That may be a while though. Moreover, burning DVD movies to disc is also phasing out. Most flat screen panel tv's have usb ports. Movies can be placed on the usb then played, erased when done and a new movie put on it. A great feature since 8GB thumb drives are less than $10 and can be used over and over and over again unlike DVD RW. Those do have limits and loose quality over time.

Not sure if I will keep it or not to be honest. I can do all the things with ImgBurn (free) that I can do with this. I will probably play with some of the other features then uninstall.

Thanks for the offer but, it's too early not to support authoring. And, you need to work on the navigational abilities.

Avast was curious about the install, nothing unusual. It passed with flying colours.
The program looks simple and straight forward. Just what I have been waiting for. Free-ware has it's limitations and this program seems to have it all.

av burning pro 4.5.1 is downloaded, installed, and activated without any error on my desktop computer running windows 7 home premium x64 (intel pentium dual core e5400 processor, 4gb ddr2-800 ram, 500gb sata 3gbps hitachi hdd, nvidia 9500gt 1gb video card)

the installed program launches fast informs that there are only 9 remaining launches if not activated.


the program is minimalist and fast like imageburn (free).

the program has many components like audio grabber, isoburner, vcd and dvd creator, and device info component which displays the supported media types of my samsung dvd-rewriter.

as i don't have any blu-ray writer, i was not able to test blu-ray write.

i will try to dvd-burn other media types later.

if the program works as advertised, then the avp burning pro is a keeper.
