BurnAware Professional is a powerful CD, DVD and BD disc burning solution intended for users who need maximum control over every aspect of the burning process and use multiple burners for mass-production of various discs and quick creation of disc-to-disc copies. The program enables users to create data discs (CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, bootable CD and DVD discs) and discs with multimedia content (Audio CD, MP3 discs and DVD video discs). Apart from this, BurnAware Pro will help you create and burn ISO images (ISO and CUE/BIN image files supported), erase rewritable discs, burn multisession discs and even extract specific files from disc sessions and tracks from Audio CDs. A simple and intuitive interface of the program will make even novices feel comfortable with the program features.
BurnAware Professional is a user-friendly disk authoring tool that comes bundled with many features, allowing users to create data, Blu-ray, bootable, custom, audio and MP3 discs, to name but a few.
The interface looks familiar, and users shouldn't stumble upon any navigation issues if they have some experience with this kind of software.
The welcome screen contains all modules for manipulating disks, and they are organized into data, multimedia, disc images and utilities categories.
Dual panels are provided for navigating directories and adding items to the list using the drag-and-drop feature. You can edit the disk name and select the size profile (e.g. DVD 4.7GB, Blu-ray DL 50GB), as well as pick the burning device and speed. The custom disc mode offers support for the ISO 9660, Universal Disk Format, Bridge (ISO 9660 + UDF) and DVD-video file systems.
It is possible to save the file list for other projects, erase rewritable discs, simulate the burn process instead, pick the number of copies, ask BurnAware Professional to finalize discs and use custom file dates, as well as modify labels, among others.
Other options of BurnAware Professional enable you to burn existing image files (ISO or CUE format), create an ISO file (common or bootable) from disc or mounted image, write ISO files to multiple recorders, view disc and drive information, copy a disc to another one, as well as extract audio tracks or data from multisession discs.
The data burning tool is surprisingly light on the system resources, using a low amount of CPU and RAM, and delivers good speed. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash.
