Works very well on my Dell laptop running Windows 8.1 x64.

This has a nice simple & clean interface, and it's free. I work on PC's/Laptops, and usually install this for people. My clients say that they find it easy to use. CDBurnerXP is also not bad either. http://fileforum.betanew...CDBurnerXP/1086612184/1

Good!

I've been using this program for years now, on Win7 64bit. No issues, no failed burning projects and no disc copy errors. Copying discs to ISOs is extremely useful.

However, development rate has dipped, though I'm sure the author would be more active if he could. After all, spare time software development beside work is extensive. One feature that should be considered for future releases for those who use them, is Blu-Ray disc support. Other programs have this though, like ImgBurn, but would be cool to see the feature in an open source application.

Still, not enough to warrant a lower score.

Completely redeemed itself with this release.

FIVE stars.

This software is rubbish! It is supposed to be a CD burning app. Well I cant find any way of burning songs stored as MP-3s to a CD. Much better to use Deep Burner or CDBurnerXP.

Save yourself some grief; don't download this junk!

Badly broken in this release - I have no idea how it passed QA Testing.

- Turns off "View Desktop Icons". Any program that usurps priveleges to do this has serious issues. Launchy does something similar and it too has never been addressed.

- Will not accurately see burn speeds of my LG DVD burner. ImgBurn, CDBurner XP pro have no problems. This program reports 7x when the actual capability using the particular media in question (TDK DVD+R 16x) includes 8x.

- Will not burn data DVDs. Produces an error message that some drives don't like closing the burn session. The aforementioned programs have no problems.

- no icon for 64-bit version.

- pathetic forum support. Many of these issues have been repeatedly brought up and there is no acknoledgement that there is a problem or offer of a fix.

Apparently the program was reasonably fine until this release. I didn't use it heavily prior to Windows 7, but what I see now is not worth the download. The author needs to SERIOUSLY get it together NOW. Until then I can wholeheartedly recommend ImgBurn.

ONE star for a disastrous update that is pretty much garbage and adds far more bugs than it removes.

If you need coasters try burning an iso it makes.

It doesn't seem to be able to format DVD+RW's and does not reliably burn BIN / CUE images. Tested on 2 machines and other apps did the work without issues.

Free is great, but working is better.

InfraRecorder is the best open source CD/DVD burning program out there. There are also some great freeware choices too, like DeepBurner. It's been great to have programs like this to use when I just want to do some basic CD/DVD burning and don't want to buy an expensive program.

It also comes in handy if I'm at someone's computer and they don't have any burning software. It's really helpful to be able to give someone a program like this that can be installed anywhere for free, legally. With so many great free programs out there, people can save lots of money and still be honest.

I have used Nero, ImgBurn, CDburnerXP, Burnaware and a few others.

None of which I have been nearly as happy with, as I am with Infrarecorder. It does pretty much everything you can think of, it is light, it is free and it is an active project.

My kudos goes to the developer. Best piece of burning software, if someone was to ask me.

I have to say that I much prefer CDBurnerXP Pro which is also available here for free. But, in the end, I always go back to Nero, yes it's bloated, yes you have to pay for it, but it's still the best CD/DVD Burner out there, in my opinion anyway.

For me this looks a great program, however I have a major issue, it will do nothing as it keeps saying to insert a blank disk and therefore I can burn nothing at all. How useful is that!

Wow :-)

Been looking for a free (preferably open source) alternative to Nero Burning Rom (which I've been using for some years)

InfraRecorder does the job very well. Nice GUI.

This app is a excellent alternative to most bloatware out there. I install this for all my clients and friends, for personal use I prefer ImgBurn.

Joco, you should't rate an app beacause you don't know how to use it. ImgBurn percentage bar is visible when using build mode but you might need to activate it first or use the HUGE calculator button.

The file explorer... I barely need such thing.
