CDBurnerXP is not a DVD authoring application. Only burn already existing video DVD images to disc.

CDBurnerXP (the 'minimal' installer under "More download options" -> "Default installer (Without OpenCandy)" (as of February 23, 2012) is however adfree)

I agree ;)


now evil

about CDBurnerXP · ·

inflicts the opencandy malware on workstation through installation wrapper

developer OUTRIGHT lies on root page "It does not include adware or similar malicious components."

My quick googling research shows that it is indeed adware but nothing unique or super malicious:

"Open Candy seems to be a plugin that software developers can use to display an advertisement in their installer asking if you want to install some other software."

The huge "DOWNLOAD" button that you see first on this software homepage indeed holds the adware thing - which my Panda antivirus detected immediately. However, if you choose carefully from the drop-down download options menu - you can find a version that doesn't contain the OCSetupHlp.dll. I chose 64bit msi and I'm on Win 7.

Anyway, CDBurnerXP is a very reliable tool compared to others, I've used it for ages, since my Win XP days. If other burners sometimes screwed my cdr's or dvdr's - I tried CDBurnerXP and it worked fine.

Great burner app

about CDBurnerXP and ImgBurn · ·

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.

about CDBurnerXP · ·

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


Great Nero alternative software

about CDBurnerXP and ImgBurn, Nero Burning ROM · ·

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 · ·

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

about CDBurnerXP and Nero Burning ROM · ·

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.

about CDBurnerXP · ·

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!

about CDBurnerXP · ·

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


CDBurnerXP is much better that Imgburn.
