free software for burning music and data disks

  pookie 12:20 21 Apr 2012


I have windows 7 home premium. I have used Nero version 7 for years for burning backup data and music cds with the odd video as well. However, as Nero 7 is about 4 years old are there any free software versions of cd/dvd burning programmes that do a better job than the old Nero I use?

Thank you

Gizmo's is a great site for all things free, links, suggestions and reviews.

This covers the main culprits, burning wise.

Personally I use standard Windows or Imgburn for almost everything (prepared in apps on HDD first)

Thanks for this. I have downloaded a few and I can't notice any difference in audio quality bewteen newer free ones and my old Nero 7 however the video quality of the newer free ones looks better

I abandoned Nero long ago on discovering Ashampoo Burning Studio. The free version is available here on CNet
