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

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.
