What is FireStarter FX?
FireStarter is a pure Cocoa, Mac OS X only burning application which will allow you to duplicate all kind of CDs (even those that other Mac OS X applications won’t), burn VCDs and SVCDs, and have access to unique features such as overburning and CDDB access. It’s also a very easy way of burning disc images from the PC world: It handles perfectly well cue/bin files, which are so common on Windows, and which were very hard to burn with other tools.
It allows you to easily backup CDs that Apple’s Disc-Copy nor Roxio Toast can backup. It allows you to burn iso and cue/bin files from the PC world, which makes FireStarter FX unique on Mac OS X. It brings overburning feature to Mac OS X in an easy and neat interface. (‘overburning’ is a cool feature which allows you to burn more data than originally allowed on a CD. Hence you can burn for example a 704MB file on your 701MB CD-R). It allows you to create iso and cue/bin files for burning later, or share with your (god forgive me) PC friends. You can back-up a folder with only two clicks, which makes it very convenient and more powerful than the Finder burning. You can erase a CD-RW with two clicks too, which again makes it a lot more convenient than what is currently done in Mac OS X. FireStarter FX sports all the features you want to see in a commercial grade burning application: -Simulation -Customizable RAM cache -High speed burning -Buffer under-run technology to prevent wasting your media -Multi-session burning (please read the “known issues and limitations” section) -Paranoia audio-cd ripping, for best error protection copy -CDDB access to automatically create CD-TEXT data -CD-TEXT reading and writing with drives that support it
The website is down. Last version, 1.0rc1, was released on July 2008. It can be still downloaded from MacUpdate.com
