BurnAware can support a wide variety of media formats and burn them directly onto DVDs, Blu-rays or standard data discs simultaneously; up to four audio streams can simultaneously and eight subtitle streams at once – offering users maximum flexibility when burning high quality videos to disc.

ISO and CUE/BIN image creation

BurnAware boasts the capability of creating ISO or CUE/BIN image files from CDs and DVDs, enabling users to store data across multiple discs or create back up copies should a hard disk fail or other issues arise. This feature enables backup copies in case something goes amiss in future.

“Span Disc” functionality within the software enables users to burn data across multiple discs simultaneously, which is useful when the amount of information needs to be burned exceeds one disc’s capacity. By creating multiple spanned discs, users can divide large data files into manageable sections that can then be burned on individual rewritable discs.

Beyond its basic burning functions, the program also allows users to create bootable discs and multilevel discs; record high-quality audio CDs and video DVDs; copy and erase rewritable discs; set the burning speed; choose disc formats; control boot settings, UDF partitions and ISO levels; session selection; as well as text for audio CDs.

BurnAware allows users to duplicate discs directly into a BIN or ISO file for storage purposes in case their computers crash or another disaster arises, providing essential documents and files access in case something goes amis. This feature may prove particularly helpful if important documents or data need protecting in case something goes amis.

BurnAware supports both UDF and ISO9660 file systems, which have been designed to be system-independent – meaning the same disc can be read by both Windows 2000 and XP without needing special drivers installed on it.

Disc-to-disc copying

BurnAware makes copying CDs and DVDs from source to destination easier and faster, maintaining format and data. Similar to ripping, it preserves track and gap information which is critical for high-quality audio/video creation. Whether it be backup a CD, burning multisession discs, or creating copies of damaged discs this feature can prove extremely helpful.

Burning Settings window lets you select your target drive and disk type before customizing Write Speed settings to suit. In addition, delete temporary file after writing is also an option to help free up space on your computer and prevent overwriting of disc. Lastly, an Ignore errors occurred while reading disc sectors feature can help preserve readability by replacing defective areas with zeros while keeping copies readable.

BurnAware goes far beyond standard disc creation and backup; it can also create and burn ISO images, extract audio tracks, erase rewritable discs, verify discs, verify them against database files and more. Furthermore, its user-friendly interface, multilingual support, low CPU usage during burning and low RAM usage make BurnAware an invaluable asset to have around.

BurnAware stands out as one of the premier free disc burning applications, boasting advanced video editing and menu creation features not found elsewhere. However, for beginners looking for basic CD and DVD creation and backup solutions without incurring additional costs for Blu-ray – BurnAware provides everything they’d need besides that ability. However, many don’t own Blu-ray players anyway so this shouldn’t be too much of an issue anyway.
