Great burner app

Positive Comment by niteshasdow
about CDBurnerXP and ImgBurn Jun 2011

Great burner app (not as complete as ImgBurn though, but better than most paid apps).
I also like the command line version that comes with it.


Great CD/DVD burning solution

Positive Comment by HermitPete
about CDBurnerXP Jun 2011

Great CD/DVD burning solution that's free of charge, bloat, adware, crapware and the like


Great Nero alternative software

Positive Comment by DevilishVicious
about CDBurnerXP and ImgBurn, Nero Burning ROM Jun 2011

Very good software. Great Nero alternative, with the exception of not reading .cue/.bin files, but for those I use "ImgBurn". The two of them are a great combination and they're both free, so why settle for just one :P


Probably the best free CD/DVD burning program available.

Positive Comment by JonM33
about CDBurnerXP Jun 2011

Probably the best free CD/DVD burning program available. Easy to use. Doesn't come with any adware or bloat.


Great user interface that anyone can understand.

Positive Comment by s0me0ne
about CDBurnerXP and Nero Burning ROM Jun 2011

Great user interface that anyone can understand. So if you have non-tech friends and family, get them off Nero and install this instead.


When I have to burn cd/dvd CDBurnerXP is my choice.

Positive Comment by giplikan
about CDBurnerXP Jun 2011

I need to burn disc less then two-three years ago because of usb flash drives and fast&cheap internet.
But when I have to burn cd/dvd - CDBurnerXP is my choice.
I've tried a lot of other software but CDBurnerXP is the best for me (plus it is free :) )


The best Burner!

Positive Comment by BrianG
about CDBurnerXP Jun 2011

I think it's the best Non-bloatware easy to use Burner app out there.


CDBurnerXP is much better that Imgburn.

I like it more than Imgburn. I think is much better that Imgburn.


One of the best free Windows burning programs

Positive Comment by Aaron
about CDBurnerXP Jun 2011

I find this one of the best free Windows burning programs, I have installed it on many computers that I have fixed.


It does the job. A little fuss program...

Comment by Egregius
about CDBurnerXP Jun 2011

Although it does the job for most tasks, it doesn't support burning .cue/.bin files, and it automatically made it's own projects directory in my home directory. Otherwise a little fuss program.
