Very nice program for burning CDs from cue files. UNFORTUNATELY for some time it does not seem to have been updated to cater for new burners AND e-mails sent to tech support ([email protected]) have started to bounce (Remote host said: 550 Mailbox unavailable).

Ah, the old days. Gee, if I had a Win95 machine, maybe I'd pay this price.

I used to be a CDRWin fan when CD writers were the new top notch technology. Unfortunately, CDRWin has not evolved quickly enough, has been overtaken by the competition years ago, and is now several laps behind. Today, any other competitive product will give you a better deal in terms of both price and features.
I give it a 2 purely by nostalgia and in recognition to the services rendered in the previous millenium.

no support for vista i don't care about.
BTW: it burns dvd

quota from gh.com:

What's new in versions 3.9?

* More than 1500 different CDROM and DVD recorder models are now supported. Please see Supported Devices for a complete list.

* Support for DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, and DVD+RW discs.

* Support for the UDF and UDF-Bridge filesystems.

* Multi-recorder support (record multiple discs at the same time).

i rate it 5 for being one of the most stable burning apps. could be beaten by imgburn in a few months...

Despite the discussion about stolen code and not really being updated (besides of blacklisting stolen keys / keymakers plus adding new devices) i recently bought a license...finally, after years of extended trial periods. Why? Because cdrwin never ever gave me a coaster since i used it from v.3.7 on my Mitsumi 4802 TE. Though i don't need the unique features like the karaoke thing i still rate the burning dinosaur 5.

Ahhh.. Been using this for years and years and I still use it today for the majority of my burning tasks. It's simple, not bloated, cue sheet support ( which is a big bonus for me since I like my audio ripped into one file with a cue sheet to control track changes and also using cue sheets maintains the overall sound quality for all tracks since it is just one file), gapless audio recording, DAO, and all that other stuff in a tiny little package that is very fast and dependable. I have never had a problem with it at all and I will continue to use it as I can.

Except for adding support of new writers, the application hasn't changed in years. That being said, it's still a solid burning software that is great at doing what it's intended for. Of course, it will be bashed on this site since it's not a freeware or open-source even though it has nothing to do with product quality.

CDRWin is light, portable and is stable. After all these years, I still use it for some burning tasks.

Many years ago this software was the best for certain tasks. For example it used to be the only burning program that could successfully write Playstation 1 game isos. This was 5-6 years ago and the UI looked the same back then. Today I can't see why the program are kept up to date.

The UI was outdated many years ago and nothing has changed. Burning suites like Nero can do everything that CDRWIN can and many many more things, and Nero is also much more user friendly.

Wow. A blast from the past. I bought this program way back when I got my Ricoh 6201S 2x burner. It was the best thing for burning audio CDs since you could do DAO and get gapless recordings. I still have the program but I have not used it in a LONG while. The best thing about CDRWin is that it is very simple to install (just copy the files to a directory) and it does not depend on loads of DLLs in the windows directories. I am sure that it is still a great program and does the job.
