DVD Burners

One of the hallmarks of the early days of disc drives in computers, support for burning CDs and DVDs is one of the most popular things to do with them. Software such as ImgBurn and InfraRecorder provide a variety of options to control how you want your CDs and DVDs burned. Despite this, many use the tried and true built-in Windows Media Player for their disc burning needs, with Brasero acting as a simple alternative on Linux-based operating systems.
