BurnAware Free / Home Edition 1.2.8

BurnAware allows you to easily perform the most common disc burning operations: write to all CD/DVD media types, including Blu-Ray (BD-R/BD-RE); create and burn disc images; write multi-session discs; verify the integrity of files; burn your compilations directly on optical media, without having to wait for hard drive staging first and much more. Its proprietary burning algorithm provides the highest level or fault-tolerance, error-free burning and data integrity.

BurnAware is available in two editions: Home and Free. Unlike the basic free version, the Home Edition writes data discs with additional options (data mode, label, date, etc.), creates bootable discs, creates ISO images from discs, supports ISO/UDF/Bridge file systems and CD-TEXT for Audio CD's.

Miranda 0.8.0 Testing #10 available


This would be an excellent program if it only functioned the same way on all systems. Had it installed on all 7 of my machines right after the last posting about this here at Neowin. It didn't work the same way on any of the 7, if at all, which it didn't on 3 of them. Almost thought I had found a replacement for that bloated Nero!

After having gone through those changes last time, I just reinstalled Nero 6.6.06, which isn't nearly so bloated and works perfectly.

Really? Different OSes or recorders?

Having tried to get into this, it's been uninstalled from my system again. Each and every time, without fail, the program locks up after completing the burning process and before verification. It's been like that from the beginning. I don't know what is failing, I never receive an error, it just freezes and needs to be three-fingered* killed.

I want so hard to get into it - I love the design and look of the app - but if it fails every time I try to use it, it looses it's appeal really quick.

*This denotes having to use Ctrl+Alt+Del and killing the process and not an actual physical attack move taught to me by my ninja guardians.
