Ashampoo Burning Studio is a very popular suite that includes many tools, which you can use to burn optical discs, or to create data backups and images. By using this powerful program, you will be able to burn CDs, DVDs, and even Blu-ray discs. Additionally, you can use the integrated tools to create disc covers, as well as multimedia slideshows and burn them afterward.
I like this application for the fact that it gathers a large number of tools under a professional and organized user-interface. Moreover, Ashampoo Burning Studio is also able to run in Compact mode. It is useful especially for beginners as it allows them to use drag-and-drop actions in order to add files and folders that need to be burned.
One important aspect about this program is that it properly runs on all Windows versions, including Windows 8. Furthermore, the program is available in more than 30 languages.
While testing the application, I noticed that it is capable of burning discs at very high speeds. It is not always recommended to burn your discs at high speed, but it can save you a lot of time when you’re in a hurry. Also, the program easily creates data images in formats like ISO, CUE, or ASHDISC.
To conclude with, I think this program comes at a reasonable price and you could give it a try.
