One of the best free pieces of software out there. Also dalmiroy2k, it is far too complicated to untick the box that says to install the AVG software.........NOT!


DudeBoyz reviewed v5.2 on Sep 14, 2012

I'd give this a 3.5 if it was an option. It is particularly effective for novices in burning. It's much less intimidating than Nero Burning ROM 10 or 11, for example, and much less bloated.

I'm glad that the program is out there and that it's free. Yes, I wish it did more and was slightly more intuitive but it's still worth using.


Andem reviewed v5.1 on Aug 27, 2012

I personally like this program since its interface is pretty simple. I have a few issues with the features it offers, though. It isn't nearly as powerful as paid programs like Nero.

Since it's free, you can't really complain about what it doesn't do.. but if you have a simple burning project, it is sufficient.


dalmiroy2k reviewed v5.1 on Aug 8, 2012

You must install AVG browser toolbar and there is no way around it.


-Lord- reviewed v4.9 on May 1, 2012

Free means free. It should not mean it's "free, but if you want it complete it will cost you money". So for that I give it one strike. It's easy to use but not nearly as powerful as alternatives, thus giving it an element of incomplete-ness. Strike two. Beyond that it's decent, and works for the newbs, I guess. If you want powerful, and really, truly free... get ImgBurn.

3 for putting up a decent effort, but the most damning is that it's not "truly" free for all the complete features.

There's nothing to distinguish Burnaware from a half dozen other freeware burning programs. If it had an extra feature or 2, or was portable, then it would stand out. As it is, it's just bleh. Also, it harbors the dreadful Ask Toolbar, so it's really "Adware". not "Freeware".


Alexander-GG reviewed v3.1.1 on Jan 5, 2011

Very nice burner. Has almost all features, light and fast, nice interface.


Brandawg reviewed v3.0.7 on Oct 28, 2010

I gave Burn Aware a 3 because I've been using if for about two years now. When I first started using it it was GREAT!!! But then updates started and it's gotten progressively worse with each update. The control panel is not as user friendly as previous versions - it went from two clicks to burn a DVD to about 6 clicks and options for burn speed decreased. With this latest update - 3.0.7 - it crashes more then it functions. It never crashed before. It's just gotten progressively worse over time. PLEASE GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS CONTROL PANEL.

GadgetPig reviewed v3.0.2 on Aug 11, 2010

Good program for most "basic" CD/DVD needs. As was mentioned, minus 1 star since you can't directly create DVD disc from a single movie file. I think in 2010 this should really be standard.

2 workarounds to create DVD disc from a single movie file:

- Use windows live DVD maker which is included with Vista or Windows 7

- Use "DVD Flick" freeware from sourceforge:

With the latest release Beta 13 Build Date June.4,2010 I am not seeing Burnaware choking on audio files that exist on a network PC using Gigabit Lan.I copied lots of files and Burnaware burned them very fast!!

Burnaware 3.0 latest beta is rock solid!! :)

If any of you see any bugs however please make sure and report them to the tech support guy. He listens to his users and is very fast at fixing things when needed to be fixed.

Or if you have a good idea for a new feature contact him for that also.

Richardky reviewed v3.0 Beta 10 on May 12, 2010

its my prefered burner for what little i do .. i like it better than what you would pay for else where .. if your looking for a simple no brainer no bloat burner then you should try this best of all its free .. outstanding software


DudeBoyz reviewed v3.0 Beta 10 on May 10, 2010


In testing I'm finding that this app chokes on audio files that exist in a Gigabit Lan. Buffer Underrun is enabled, which should help with hiccups but the thing hit 15% and stayed there for 38 minutes before I canceled it. Repeat test with different files on another networked drive yielded the same result. That's a fairly high-profile issue, and may be a show-stopper for some who may be hosting their audio library from a remote machine.

It was not able to close the track and recover with either occurrence.


I think I like the new interface better than the previous one, but I do sort of wish that they allowed you to set the Sidebar so that it can show Text-Only and Text With Icon in addition to the default Icon-Only.

It is a very basic, very simple program without a folder tree, but if you don't mind that limitation, it can work well as a drag-and-drop destination particularly for creating Audio-CD's.

It does NOT rely on DOT NET, which I find to be a major plus, and it looks to be pretty lean in terms of the code-base and the use of system resources.

Since this program is so tailored for a drag-and-drop method, I think it would be much more helpful if the program provided users with an option to have it remember the window size and location that was last used. I'll send that in as a requested feature.

I'd give it a 3.5 if I could, but it does offer enough usability (and is free) so I'll settle for a 4 and re-look when the final release drops.


yincision reviewed v3.0 Beta 8 on Apr 23, 2010

us3r is wrong and his review should be deleted. Earlier versions of burnaware gave you the option to install an Ask.com toolbar but this is gone in the 3.0 beta.

The newest 3.0 beta 8 is awesome. It fixes the "no recorder found" problem. I have been using BurnAware for about 3 years and find it to be the simplest, lightest and best free burning program out there. No bloat just what you need to get the job done quickly.

The latest 3.0 beta is perfect.

The new BurnAware Free 3.0 Beta 8 looks very promising!

It loads up so fast and has a nice and simple to understand interface and is very easy to use. And its also not bloated like other popular burning softwares. Its very light!

I have not tested it enough to find all the bugs but if everything works as it should when the final version is released then Burnaware 3.0 will be a great alternative to other burning softwares like the bloated "Nero" for example.

Also @ us3r

Burnaware does not have any spyware dude!!!

It is as clean as software gets!

Spyware crap. First thing it does after clicking the install.exe is to install Ask Toolbar. Go F@ck youself is my answer to that.


cowgaR reviewed v2.4.3 on Jan 10, 2010

too simplistic:
1. doesn't burn multisession discs, either CDs or DVDs (will load session but any burn attempt will end up with meaningless error)

2. formating/writing to DVD-RW takes ages, cancel not possible

3. does not remember settings, need to set filesystem (ISO/UDF) or characters depth all the time and again and again

after so many patches, I expected something more robust... (installed it for not-so-knowledgable users), Nero is still the king (until imgburn updates its horrible multi-zillion-tab interface)


GadgetPig reviewed v2.4.3 on Jan 8, 2010

Good program for basic burning tasks. During setup, I recommend to disable both the "check for newer version" and "ask toolbar" options. Other good alternatives are infrarecorder and cdburnerxp

There is a similar issue with that error using Memorex discs here:

They suggest to make sure your burner firmware is up to date, chkdsk your hard drive, and use good quality discs like RiData, Sony, TDK, "Branded" Ritek G04's, "Branded" Verbatim Data Life, Verbatim DataLife and Taiyo Yuden. Try using a Verbatim or TDK disc, and post back if this fixed your issue. Otherwise "infrarecorder" is an excellent alternative:

I'm using:

- Memorex DVD-RW Disc

- Lite-on DVDRW SHW-1635S

- BurnAware Free ver 2.4.2

and it's say: " Burn process failed.. " (invalid field in CDB)

but burned with imgburn everything was fine.


zeon reviewed v2.4.2 on Nov 26, 2009

A good and most importantly free alternative to things like Nero, at least if your needs (like mine) are just simple burning. Unlike some other free alternatives it doesn't waste time writing out a DVD-sized temporary ISO before every burn attempt, and instead burns straight from the files. Has a few odd UI choices but nothing problematic, everything important is easily accessible or visible (e.g . disc capacity remaining, verify data checkbox, manual burn speed, etc.). Drag and drop from Explorer works fine too. Is a little CPU-heavy when burning but supposedly the upcoming version 3 is going to address that, either way I've had no problems with version 2 thus far. Good program and I look forward to its future development.

Downloaded to Windows 2003 Server. Exported *.AU music files into *.MP3 format and burned to a cd using NEC_DVD. This software works so great, I'm ditching (1)Img Burn; (2) Roxio; and (3) Nero....


Reverb reviewed v2.3.9 on Aug 28, 2009

Ths is probably the best non-bloat alternative to Nero. I bought the pro version and the only problem I have is I can't get it to burn faster than 6x despite the fact that both my DVD burners (Toshiba and Optiarc) are 16x. Nero and ImgBurn work fine (I usually burn 12x to be safe). It would be nice if they had support forums instead of just email support so you can see if anyone else is experiencing the same problems and what they did to fix it.

Another thing....all settings are stored to an INI file yet their FAQ states that BurnAware cannot be made portable. Wha? Hope they address the speed issue in the next update. Otherwise a good, stable burner with more options than ImgBurn and lighter than Nero.

Great lite burning app. I'm really impressed with it. I'm still using it more than a half of year and have no problems with it. Burned more than hundred times with it Data/Video/Image recordable, rewritable and double-layer DVDs, Audio and Data CDs and all was perfect. Even no problems with erasing disks such I met in past with InfraRecorder or problems with non-unicode languages and empty folders after renaming files I met with CDBurnerXP Pro and have no problems with detecting burned tracks on non-finalized disks I met on DeepBurner Free.
Great app. Sure I understand that this edition is free, but would be great to see disk copy functions, making ISO function and burning more images types such as mds (mdf), bin/cue, nrg, img etc. That's why I'm using ImgBurn in that cases. Uh, thanks to developers for that diamond. I recommend it. BeautyAware.

It's an elegant little burner, but missing advanced features that Nero, for instance, has. Even verification was only introduced one version ago.


marsovac reviewed v2.2.2 on Jan 12, 2009

For those who stated that Disc Copy is missing, just use separate options:
1. Make CD Image
2. Burn ISO image
3. Finally delete the ISO image when you done burning.

That's the technique that some other programs' disc copy wizards are doing for you when you run them.
Here you need to run just a bit of brains!

This is a nice little gem of a program. I have used it mostly for .mp3 back up to DVD, and burning .mp3 to CD data. Always fine.

This is not a problem for me with 2.1.7 and this version also seemed faster to me. Can't beat the price.

Failed to burn a PS3-readable Audio CD from MP3's. (Fine on the PC, though.)

simple free without the bloat like Nero.

Free or not.. this is the real deal. I had terrible problems with my DVD Drive, would not write cos of disk, and other issues.

Installed this program, worked first time. Therefore 5/5 great job:)

only an idiot could feel vengative about the soft being freeware again. It might have been a matter of decisions going forth and back.

Now about the software, irrelevant audio support and options depth destroy it. It's a pity because it achieves a fantastic interface.
