Answer for #43 ...probably the only free version of Ashampoo Burning Studio available on the internet is the version 6.77

http://download.cnet.com/Ashampoo-Burning-Studio-Free/3000-2646_4-10776287.html

It's been around for years and does a great job,.. check out the reviews at CNet and Snap Files.
If you really need the later version, I suggest you visit your local store and check the various computer magazines when they come out each month because they quite often offer the 2009 version absolutely free,.. that's how I get mine.

@ #9 The best free alternative probably is Ashampoo Burning studio 9 or 2009 which is free now at many places on internet.

Where? Every site I go to, it's only "free to try" then $39.99

Heavy, heavy thoughts... Who can tell me, does this program support multisession discs? Not a mention about it on the official site! If not, this program is hardly more useful then ImgBurn, which is absolutely free. Yes, ImgBurn can't rip music from CDs, but all people with brains use Exact Audio Copy for this purpose.

#26...Hard Drive? I use a 32GB USB Drive for my system drive and the 1TB WD Passport to Hold everything...I have a AMD 2 CPU processor with 6 GB Ram, I essentially Boot off the USB and launch Virtual PC.

Haven't had any problems with slowness and with Virtual PC ,
I have my PC Copy the Virtual Hard Drive to an archive folder everytime I shut it down. If software causes a crash then I restore the archive and am good to go.

Nero lite is free, however, it requires you to install the Ask toolbar and more importantly, you cannot burn a playable DVD from an image with Nero lite. You must upgrade to the pay version for that function to work.

Optical storage media like CD/DVD... will be out run by USB flash devise due to the efficiency, capability, and also the small size of the object and it's reusable 1000 times/5 years minimum for most flash USB drive, longer life span, etc.

Now days you could even 'burn' your OS bootable installation image into USB for fresh OS install (anyone who interested Google for: WinToFlash or WinSetupFromUSB). Not every computer have a CD/DVD... burner, but surely there will be a USB port on it, some of the home use CD/DVD ... player has already equip with a USB port with support playback for AVI, WMV ,RM, MP3, FLAC etc. format direct from your flash USB drive.

Just to be frank, I can't really see the future/advantage for Burner Software. Further more, it's costing for $29.95, and there is lots of free burner out there already.

#1: "... “idea” is to add bluray support, read the information before wasting space. ..."

FWIW, not being able to erase a BD RE, IMHO it could use [more?] BD support.

* * *

If there is really anyone out there without a burning software then get it while it’s going. I’ll stick with Nero and CDBurnerXP thanks.

#5: "... it could not rip video from DVDs I bought ..."

Check DVDFab & SlySoft sites.

* * *

#6: "... Surely it is still the case that ONLY RW discs can be re-burned…Or is what they claim correct? That any old “data discs” can be re-burned with updated or new data ?? ..."

You can easily find more info on-line [IMHO the ImgBurn site/forums are a great place to start], but in a nutshell you can erase/re-write some discs, or just not finalize them so data can be added whenever, which also writes a new *table of contents* each burn, & is how you delete files/folders. Additionally there is the DVDR & similar formats, & the drag/drop methods available from Roxio & Nero, which [simplified] use the disc somewhat like an external storage drive.

* * *

#24: "... Does this software do any thing that Nero can not? ..."

Depends on the version of Nero. Compared to the full version or the one noted below -- no.

* * *

#27: "... I get all 3 of these for free either as a download or bundled with any burner I buy. ..."

Just a quick note: the Nero &/or Roxio versions included with [normally retail packaged only] burners are *usually* extremely limited versions, like most bundled software. While you sometimes get a nice surprise [Nero Essentials 9, version 2 is nice], most of the time it's hardly worth installing [e.g. the really bare version of Nero Essentials vs. http://store.purplus.net/ne9essu2.html].

That must have been quite a pretty big rock lol.
There have also always been rewritable CDs/DVDs that you can format or wipe and write new or also you can delete single files and add new files i.e. update.
Using DLA (Drive Letter Access) you can even treat such a CD just like a normal drive and save files directly from applications to the medium.

Burn Pro is a small [~21MB], almost portable app [you'd need to use the portableapps.com format to move the Applications Data folder alongside the the one for the app], & it includes the proven StarBurn code. On the downside, while it does include some audio functions [readily found elsewhere], when it come to burning discs, I don't see anything Burn Pro does better than the smaller [~4.4MB], already portable, free, very well-proven ImgBurn.

IMHO ImgBurn has a somewhat less friendly interface, so I always keep my eyes open for alternatives -- in this respect Burn Pro at 1st seemed promising, but by the time you click through all the windows necessary to burn a disc, the only improvement it has to offer is a bit more color in the initial window. It takes too long to scan for optical disc drives [which I had to do every time], has no verify option [to make sure the burned disc is a 100% copy], won't let you set up a burn unless you have a blank disc inserted in the selected drive [a nuisance if/when you do a lot of burning IMHO], & though it's supposed to work with Blu Ray drives, it refused to read or erase a BD RE [Blu Ray Re-Writable]. Less important, it wouldn't recognize or work with either my DVD or DVD/BD burners from inside 7's XP Mode VM.

All in all I found Burn Pro very usable [simple DVD burns seemed to work OK], but I just don't see any compelling reason to use it. The major alternatives = Roxio, which has a huge impact on Windows, & includes quite a few advanced options as well as bundled apps [MyDVD, VideoWave, disc & media converters etc]; Nero, whose full suite is pretty much the same; & ImgBurn, where the "by-the-book" approach, sticking 100% to specs does an excellent job, but while extremely usable, it has a UI that's not as friendly. Somewhere in between are the Nero Essentials OEM version 2 CDs/licenses, selling for ~$3 - $10 online, which is friendly [easy on the eyes & nice when you don't want to take the time to think about what you're doing, i.e. ImgBurn], cuts out a Lot of the fat found in the full suite, but still has a larger impact on your system than I would like.

Can anyone verify the "update previously burned discs by adding and removing files and folders" claim?

I've been looking for burning software that can recognize that files are on an RW disc, allow you to tag the files you want deleted, rip the non-tagged files to the hard-disk, then erase the RW and re-burn the ripped files back to the RW (effectively "deleting" the tagged files).

If this app can do this, then I may run it beside my all-time-favorite ImgBurn, because it seems that's the only useful thing missing from it.

Nero and Roxio are just okay. ImgBurn does everything I need and more. I get all 3 of these for free either as a download or bundled with any burner I buy. So, why in the world would I go pay for yet another software that does exactly what these 3 all do for free??? It is a good program for free, but not worth paying for.

#23 Yes I guess I also have been dazed and confused. sometimes run videos and music off a World Book network drive , some times they "chop /jitter" previously ask my machine to do too much and crash lose boot drive etc. on main system. you lose all the reg keys , and if possible to move to new disk nothing runs (different HDD identity code) I wonder if a net drive could be used to do similar as a passport drive direct hookup or being removed it would not run virtual PC smoothly or fast enough to be workable ??

#6 , I think you have been under a rock....
As with Virtual PC if you install the software on an O/S image within it you can use that virtual image to use the Giveawayoftheday software on another machine. I keep a virtual image on a WD passport then just plug that into any machine and launch the image with virtual pc 2007 ( FREE from Microsoft ) and run the registered software from it.

#15 even if you close the session there is software that can reoprn the CD to write more to it, It is when you Finialize it that you can no longer write to it.

@ #6 I find their info very confusing about that point. They say you can erase RW but they don't say anything about writing to RW. They only talk about "burning".

@ #15 One cannot update data once it has been burned. Yes one can add updated data to a disk that hasn't been closed, but that isn't the same as updating (overwriting) the data itself which is what they seem to be implying.

Once data has been burned (not written) to a disk it is a done deal and can't be changed. When data is written to a RW disk it can be changed and updated.

#6, #15, RW means that it can be rewritten over the existing data. Or added to, I suppose. In my experience, the DVD disk has to be +r (plus write) to add to an existing DVD that has been written, unless it is finalized of course. If it is finalized, then the +r format will not be changed.

I have not seen this information in any DVD burner info that I have ever seen. I cannot find if there is a CD +R format.

I hope that this helps.

Nero is good, but the word "bloatware" must have had Nero in mind. Its about TEN times the size in MB (GB almost) it needs to be. I'll use this and try it. Wouldn't pay that though (still have Nero 8 on my comp to be fair !)

#6. If you do not close your session when burning data, you can add files or add updated versions of the files. it requires extra space on cd, i.e you will not get full 700mb depending on how many times you do it

I realy have to agree with Hamtey (see comment 1) nero is kind of defacto and any burning software mostly is free an my burner does Litescribe also which i got when i bought my burner with free updates for the forseable future so cant realy see why anyone would pay for this.
Simply put this is lame rubish and not worth paying 50p at a car boot sale.

To Proxidian, whose "idea" is to add bluray support, read the information before wasting space.

As a whole, I'm not sure how this is value for money. Most burners come with some software like Nero, and there's plenty of freeware alternatives. $29.95 (£20.00) seems a bit steep, unless they can prove it sings and dances as well.

If there is really anyone out there without a burning software then get it while it's going. I'll stick with Nero and CDBurnerXP thanks.
