Over time Nero has become bloated and is no more the simple and lightweight burning software it used to be. Here is a good alternative to those who hate newer versions of Nero. Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 is the latest version of Ashampoo’s CD/DVD (and now Blu-Ray) burning suite. This software can perform all standard burning tasks such as CD/DVD/Blu-Ray burning, backup, music ripping/burning and drive image creation. The best part is that Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 is a very compact (the installer is only 20MB) and lightweight suite which does not consume half your system resources or install several dozen unwanted apps on your system. Check it out!
Does your burning software do everything but you can’t find anything? Did installing it take up several gigabytes of hard drive space and fill up your Taskbar? Ashampoo Burning Studio 8 is different. It's compact, fast and amazingly easy to use. You just choose from a list of tasks and the software guides you through every step. And even though it has all the functions you would expect from a complete burning suite, the entire software takes up less than 85 megabytes on your hard disk.
