    Need >>FREE<< CD/DVD burner/copy software

    I urgently need some free CD/DVD burning/copy software that works with Windows 7

    Tried CDBurnerXP and Ashampoo. The former seems to not want to copy a DVD I have (standard DVD from a video camera, nothing commercial) and the latter just crashes every time I go to copy a DVD.

    Anyone?

    ImgBurn? Works a treat on Windows XP (we have it on all our workstations), haven't tried it on Windows 7.

    How about InfraRecorder Portable | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB drives, you don't have to install it and it says it is Windows 7 compatible.

    Using Ashampoo Burning Studio 2010 on Win7 here too (I think this is the first Win7-compat version); plus on all the XP clients. Works a treat, delivers via MSI and is free. There is an add-on to allow non-administrative users to run it - could be what is causing yours to crash?

    Deepburner is what I use and that doesn't do a bad job at all

    Hmmm, could be, I have no idea. I'll look into this. Thanks.

    I don't think DVD Shrink is quite what the OP is after, since it's more for ripping DVDs than burning files to disc. It also hasn't been updated since 2004 after the author left to work for Nero, so it can't cope with the latest copy protections. For that you would need to use AnyDVD, DVDFab PassKey or DVDFab HD Decrypter.

    I have both ImgBurn and InfraRecorder installed on my Windows 7 PC & depending on what I'm doing, they both work well.

    Another vote for ImgBurn. It just works.

    However, watch out for the Ask toolbar and desktop icons when you go to install it.

    Another vote for imgburn here - saved my bacon on a number of occasions when other software wouldn't burn data or didn't recognise the disc I was using etc
