ImgBurn is a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application that everyone should have in their toolkit!

It has several 'Modes', each one for performing a different task:

  • Read - Read a disc to an image file
  • Build - Create an image file from files on your computer or network - or you can write the files directly to a disc
  • Write - Write an image file to a disc
  • Verify - Check a disc is 100% readable. Optionally, you can also have ImgBurn compare it against a given image file to ensure the actual data is correct
  • Discovery - Put your drive / media to the test! Used in combination with DVDInfoPro, you can check the quality of the burns your drive is producing

Awesome lightweight program, love using it.
Ditto. Used to be a Nero guy, but ImgBurn is lightyears ahead and so much lighter! and free. And and and.. yeah, you get my point

Is this the old DVD Decrypter? They look very similar.

Yes, the same guy (i.e. LightningUK) who used to make DVD Decrypter was forced to stop making it because of possible legal action against him (because it decrypted the copy protection on DVD's etc). so instead he started making ImgBurn.

p.s. ImgBurn is best burning application (for DATA) out there and it's free. (and yes, it can do some types of audio burning but it's clearly not really made for general audio related stuff like how CDBurnerXP (which is what i use for burning regular AUDIO CDs once in a great while) type applications are)

This application has the best error messages and dialog boxes of any application ever written.

yeah, I love um

I'm sure theres loads I haven't seen.

I love this program! And some of the quotes that they put at the bottom of the main window are hilarious: "How do you not fall down more?" has been released.

* Changed: Remove some more try/catch statements (mainly to do with buffer recovery stuff) in an attempt to get to the root cause of an EInvalidOp error that I've seen in a few bug reports.
* Changed/Fixed: Attempt to clean up the icons created in the wrong location by a bug in v2.5.2.0. It made them in the current user profile rather than the all users profile and could leave you with duplicate icons after installing v2.5.3.0.
* Fixed: Bug introduced in v2.5.3.0 when selecting multiple files in an 'Open File' dialog box under Vista+ (i.e. those using the new IFileDialog code). The first file was being removed from the list of selected files.

Not a lot, but still a heads up.
