CD Burner Apps and Alternatives

14 applications in this hubLast updated: Dec 12th 2018, 13:46 GMT

Since files cannot be copied to optical discs just as easily as copying them to USB flash drives, it's necessary to use specialized tools to make this happen, called disc burners.

Newer Windows versions come packed with a disc image burner that works with ISO or IMG files, allowing you to burn files to discs only if they were previously compiled into ISO or IMG format.

However, if you're looking for faster solutions and applications that can burn any data (not only images), feel free to check out this downloads collection.

We browsed the Softpedia disc burning section and selected what we think are the best programs for the job. In addition to burning audio, video, photos and other types of files to discs, some of these apps can create bootable USB drives, create and mount virtual images, clone discs, grab audio tracks, and more.

Please note that, while some of these tools are free to use, others are free to try only. If you're interested, we also have hubs with utilities to help you view Blu-ray discs, open virtual CDs, manage virtual drives, view ISO, burn ISO, make ISO and open ISO.
