    What do you guys think about Burnaware free CD burning software v.s Nero.

    I use Burnware. Nero is bloatware nowadays.

    What do you guys use as a cd-burning software?

    I only use ImgBurn. I used to like Nero in the past, but it swell up a lot... and now I wonder why it doesn't make caffee or breakfast ;) The truth is that I only burn some files, sometimes music, rarely video and I think that ImgBurd does it well, don't need more than 1GB trash made by Nero, do I? That is my opinion :)

    Never had used BurnAware...Nero I have used around 2007 but quit using it because of the bloat(as everyone else). Nowadays I use Imageburn / CDBurnerXP. Hmmm...Is there a new CDBurnerXP version that does not have open candy? I am using CDBurnerXP v4.4.1.3243.

    JasonX yes there is a version of Cd-burner XP without open candy.
    I am writing a guide how to bypass open candy.

    I completely forgot cd-burner xp pro. Its a very great and nifty utility.

    I don't use discs and haven't for a few years
    its all drag and drop onto USB and simply plug into my PC, Tablet and Car Stereo system and play, when your tired of that playlist it's so simple to delete find new and drag and drop again.

    AND the biggest bonus is [size=+3]not as much waste adding to the landfill !![/size]

    Edit: almost forgot the other beauty No BURNING SOFTWARE required :D

    The Nero Kwik Media or Start Smart Essentials seems to be a better chocie for die-hard nero fans.

    Yes Nero is become bloat. Nero, Roxio and Cyberlink. The only these sell is through the free DVD's of these software we get when we buy a DVD drive.

    I usually just burn iso files, so this app is enough for me : BurnCDCC™

    I am using BurnAware pro for CD/VD burning. I think the free version is enough for most users and include most required featueres
