    Basically this is ImgBurn repackaged. Look at the interface. See my rating there.

    I would not download this with somebody else's computer!

    fileforum. For the sake of your reputation, I would remove this program from your archives! With all due respect.

    Reviewing 7.2 (Jul 5, 2014)

    Common for freeware programs of this kind, BurnAware comes with an advertisement-based installer by OpenCandy. Installing this program should be done with the utmost care.

    Program is useful but installs OpenCandy adware that is explicitly noted only in EWULA!! Other burning tools are available, such as AnyBurn, that do not have adware.

    This little app is sneaking up on ImgBurn. I think the average geek would prefer ImgBurn, but the average computer user would probably prefer Burn Aware.
