Please do not download this program unless you know for sure that it does not contain a terrible backdoor rootkit..Normal virus scans will come up clean..Its what happens afterwords that is devastating..Windows sees this as a normal file download and then protects the rootkit as it sees them as normal files..Listen people you do not want this..I have contacted the author of Burnaware and he asked me why I downloaded his program from videohelp and not from his websight..I asked him then why is it there to begin with..I have been downloading from since it first appeared on the internet without any issues..He refuses to believe a nasty rootkit such as this is attached to his program..Its not necessarilly in his program..Its in the way it installs,,and UPON finish..Again the problem exists that as soon as it connects back to his websight after install the rootkit is placed into your computer..I have narrowed this down and battled this in all my computers and laptops for months and it is Not from the program itself..Take your chances if you must but as for me I will never ever install this again!!

I have been using BurnAware since the earliest versions years and years ago always upgrading to a new free version when it became available..I think maybe about 3 or 4 upgrades ago a very nasty backdoor rootkit has gotten into all my desktops and laptops and after many months I finally figured where it comes from..Anyone that has installed this program knows upon completion it connects to the authors websight,,and you cannot stop it from doing so,,where he thanks you for downloading and installing BurnAware..I am pretty sure the author does not know that some lowlife for lack of a better word has quietly attached this horrid backdoor virus that (windows sees as normal files and then protects them)..Anyone that battles viruses as I have knows what rootkits are all about they are brutally effeciant and will slowly and quietly destroy your O.S..Thankfully after months spent on this I have figured this out and purged it from all of my computers..Sadly though I can never trust or use this program again..

For adware free version and at bottom of page look for "Also you can download free version without optional offers". The words "free version" is the link

I had a previous version before it had adware and found it very good My score is for the old version as i have not used this, just wanted to say where ad free one is

My favorite burning software for quite some time; comparing it to the old dinosaur that has become Nero, makes you wonder why people are throwing their money on such a resource eating software. For every day use, I don't think you should look any further: it burns your ISO files (or saves files as ISO), mp3 discs, audio CDs, DVD discs, Blu-rays/AVCHD, bootable ISO, all with an easy to use and intuitive interface. And even better - it's free.
Could it get better? I suppose so, my only improvement wish would be a x64 version.
At the time of my review, the VideoHelp admins, haven't noticed (and advertised) that from version 9.2, BurnAware is offering to install Safe Finder (which will change your home page, new tab and search engine), but this can be declined by choosing from Basic to Advanced install, and unselecting the option. It's the usual adware software (already got used to it), but this doesn't diminish BurnAware's quality.

A lot of harsh and highly questionable criticism around. Using it for years now, mainly burning DVDs.
Started using it when I discovered it could burn a fisc which cdburnerXP couldnt ("not enough space".
Highly recommended, thanks for this great little tool.
