What is ImgBurn?
ImgBurn is a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application (39 languages) that everyone should have in their toolkit. ImgBurn supports a wide range of image file formats. It can burn Audio CDs from any file type supported via DirectShow / ACM. You can use it to build DVD Video discs (from a VIDEO_TS folder), HD DVD Video discs (from a HVDVD_TS folder) and Blu-ray Video discs (from a BDAV / BDMV folder) with ease.
Note: ImgBurn cannot write a multi-session disc, and may not even support one.
The last version 22.214.171.124 is from June 2013.

Just downloaded and installed this from Softpedia.com, there was absolutely no malware installed along with it. None.
There's no reason to update it. It supports all current and past optical drives. It supports all optical media current and past. Including laser active, HD-DVD and gdrom (double data CD-R), bluray from single to quad layer, bdrw, DVD-ram. There's really no need for an update until some new media method comes out.
It uses the media's ID to see what the disc is and will support; then looks for the toc to see if there's anything on it. Burns to any and every blank laser media ever made. I wouldn't expect an update until 12K BD media comes out, or one of the holographic medias.
Tried this, but went back to CDBurnerXP.
I like CDBurnerXP's interface much more, ImgBurn is a little too minimal.
It has not been updated in a while and I understand that if there is enough to update then there's no reason to update! But I doubt nothing needs fixing or updating for this many years. I hope fresh developers continue it on.
I also saw no bundled software in the installation, I assume they are downloading it from mirrors adding such things. Download directly from trusted or even the source, compare hashes as well, just to be sure.
ImgBurn seems to be the best, free/open source burner, at least that I could find.
I like using ImgBurn Because first, it is super lightweight and super fast. The second is that it can do all the stuff I wanted with disks and Iso files.
It's pretty easy to use. It does everything that I need. And I never had a problem with it, never.
extract the file as a archive. not actually sure how much this program can be trimmed down and still run. looks like deleting everything but "ImgBurn.exe" and "ReadMe.txt" might work. needs further testing.
looks like each mirror the site provides might have packaged it differently. so that is worth taking into account as well.
