DVD Burning Software Imgburn Updated

28 Lug/09

microsoft windowsI started using Nero Burning Rom back in the days of the – super expensive – CD burners. It was an excellent CD burning software program but deteriorated into a resource hungry collection of applications and background processes. That’s when I decided to skip Nero and uninstall it from the computer system. I did find ImgBurn after evaluating quite a few DVD burning software programs and kept the program ever since. ImgBurn is everything that Nero once was probably with the exception that the user interface can confuse beginners a lot. The excellent tutorials and howtos on the other hand explain how to perform a certain DVD or CD burning operation in the computer program.

ImgBurn was recently updated to version 2.5 and the developer has published a huge list of changes, fixes and additions to that version. The program stays the same at its core which means it is still the lightweight DVD burning software that can be installed or used as a (unofficial) portable version instead.

Below are some of the more important changes introduced in this version of ImgBurn:

  • An ‘Advanced’ input mode to build mode where you have total control over the layout of the disc and can add new folders, change names etc. (i.e. you’re no longer limited to burning an existing folder structure on your hard disc as-is)
  • ImgBurn now adds itself to the context menu’s ‘Open With’ submenu for files it’s associated with.
  • Support for burning CCD files.
  • Support for building images using the ‘MODE2/FORM1/2352′ data type. (previously it only supported ‘MODE1/2048′)
  • A check to ensure all the DVD Video files in a sequence are present. (i.e. it’ll prompt if VTS_XX_1.VOB and VTS_XX_3.VOB are present but VTS_XX_2.VOB isn’t)
  • Detection of attempts to build Vista style OS installation discs (via the ’sourcesinstall.wim’ file) and the relevant prompting for conflicting settings, failing to make it bootable etc (same as an ‘I386′ install disc).

The new version of the DVD burning software can be downloaded directly from the developer’s website. It has a size of only 2 Megabytes, comes with many language translation files (e.g. German, Chinese, Russian, French and Spanish) and is compatible with all Microsoft operating systems from Windows 95 to Windows 7.
