Pros

  • It is easy to use.
  • It includes a video editor.
  • Multiple features are available from a single application.

Cons

  • Creating a disc menu isn’t as easy as it is with other tools.

Ashampoo Burning Studio can help you burn data, music, video and slideshows. It supports practically all types of discs, including CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray. Besides, it allows burning multi-session discs, spanning data over various volumes, designing covers, creating slideshows and encrypting information.

The application is very intuitive, and using a wizard-like approach avoids cluttering with excessive choices. In fact, if you have little experience in burning discs, there’s nothing to worry about, because the default settings let you perform most of the tasks without much intervention. However, should you want to explore other options, you can consult an extensive and well-written help documentation. The initial layout of the interface consists of various options classified into four categories, which are in turn related to such tasks as burning, designing, copying and printing.

There’s even an integrated movie editor that allows basic editing actions, such as cropping, splitting, merging and overlapping text and images. Unfortunately, creating a disc menu isn’t as easy as it is with other tools.

Besides burning encrypted data or creating various volumes, the tool enables you to update or finalize multi-session discs and create bootable ones. Concerning music, it allows producing standard and data CDs as well as ripping audio from discs; and luckily, you can design your own covers for them. Other features include erasing rewritable discs and saving contents to an image file.

To conclude, Ashampoo Burning Studio is a very comprehensive utility in terms of available features. When I tested the tool in various types of projects, the burning process was problem-free and the copied discs sounded perfectly. You should also know that there are various free alternatives available but with fewer features.

Martin Ashampoo Burning Studio works with Windows 7/8, supports Blu Ray discs and is easy to create data disc's for backup purposes, MP3 CDs and DVDs. It also has a feature to erase re-writable discs for reuse. I am currently using the Free Burning Studio which has all the features I need. I get occasional advertising popups when using the program, but they are not intrusive.
