Even though the use of CDs and DVDs has declined in the last many years, the large capacity Blu-ray discs are being loved as backup media. Blu-ray discs (BD) are available in multiple layer designs and many different storage capacities – 25 GB, 50 GB, 100 GB and 128 GB. The extra high capacities of Blu-ray discs make them ideal for long term backups. Unlike the flash memory based storage devices, you do not have to worry about losing your backup data from Blu-ray discs as they will last as long as 50 years.
If you want to burn data, music, audio or something else on any kind of optical discs, then you can use a powerful optical disc burner called gBurner. This is very small compared to the giants like Roxio DVD Burner or Nero Burning ROM. Even though gBurner is very small and lightweight software, it offers all the desired features like burning data discs, burning audio discs, audio CDs ripper, burn video CDs, burn DVD video discs, burn super video discs, copy discs, make ISO images from CDs, burn ISO images, erase re-writable disks, write an ISO image to a USB drive and more.
If you want to digitize your collection of audio CDs then gBurner can do it all for you. It can read the audio CDs and convert all the audio tracks into MP4, APE, WMA, FLAC or OGG audio files. The audio conversion is done at the highest quality and you won’t notice any loss of audio quality between the audio CD and the music files saved on your computer.
gBurner is also great for burning bootable ISO image to CDs or DVDs. You can use it to burn Linux or Windows ISO images to blank CD/DVD discs. In addition, you can also create your own bootable discs by adding files and then the boot information. It can also be used for creating bootable USB drives from a bootable ISO image.
gBurner is a lightweight but powerful CD/DVD/BD burner. It works flawlessly and does not cause any hiccups. We tried ripping a very old audio CD from 1995 and it create FLAC audio files in just 3 minutes. The software is offered in both 32-bit and 64-bit version and works even on older Windows computers.
