CDBunerXP is one of the best free alternatives to Nero Burning ROM. As we’ve discussed before, Nero has become bulky with all the new features added to the suite. If you just want to burn optical disks, CDBurnerXP is the perfect software to have. It can burn CD/DVD and Blu-Ray disks, erase disks (supported disk formats that is), create audio CDs, created mixed mode CDs, burn, convert or create ISO image files and basically everything else you’d expect from a standard Burner software.
Instead of Nero’s close to 1GB installation size, CDBurnerXP has a tiny installer weighing only around 3MB. Another point of note is that this software even has support for lightscribe drives and disks. Additionally, CDBurnerXP can be used in conjunction with other software such as nlite, audacity, DVDShrink and ISOBuster as well.
CDBurnerXP is a free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. Everyone, even companies, can use it for free. It does not include adware or similar malicious components.
