BurnAware is a widely used disc authoring utility that comes with an impressive lineup of features. BurnAware can be used to author Blu-ray, data, DVD, MP3, audio and even images. It can also be used to achieve compilation of disc files into pictures, to burn and boot ISO disc images, to erase and verify disc content, it can as well be used to display descriptive details about any disc.
You may think that this utility offers way too much and you must be expecting it to be complex and hard to work with. But, BurnAware comes with the most user friendly interface and intuitive user experience design ever found in disc authoring tools. It also has all those advanced features but they are well reserved for advanced users.
The setup task is quick and easy to finish. BurnAware asks users to select option to make it run along with Windows startup but this is not mandatory and this option can be disabled. BurnAware also allows non-admin system users to have accessibility to CD or DVD devices.
On an important note, as BurnAware is an ad-supported digital utility, by default setting it will attempt to download and install another utility developed by someone else, with an intention to have monetary benefit. However this can be switched off from setup by selecting the custom installation mode
