The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 12.0
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.


  • It runs on all popular Windows version.
  • It can run in "Compact" mode.
  • Appealing graphical user-interface.


  • No disadvantages have been found.

Publisher's description

Burning multi-talent, multimedia allrounder and reliable archivist in one application. The development of Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 was heavily influenced by numerous community wishes and suggestions. The result is an application that handles all tasks around burning, multimedia and archiving faster, safer and more individually.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 supports BDXL discs that hold up to 128 GB of data. If durability is a key concern, users can now also use M-DISC recordables that come in DVD and Blu-ray format and store data for up to 1000 years.

The design side has also seen improvements. Multiple new skins and support for custom user-made designs provide fresh new options. The cover editor, key component for the creation of custom covers and booklets, has also been overhauled.

Numerous application-wide enhancements provide a noticeable speed increase. This includes encoding which is now 10-15% faster and music ripping which becomes a smoother experience with automatic cover and album information retrieval.

- Burn & Copy your data to Blu-ray, DVD and CD
- New styles and templates for all modules
- Extract and burn your music. Rely on a vast array of supported formats.
- Turn your photos into slideshows, burn and share your creations with friends and family
- Use built-in encryption and keep your sensitive data secure
- Full support for current and upcoming standards (M-Disc and BDXL)
- Enjoy automated backups with mobile end user devices - thanks to the backup tool
- Work safer with auto-save

All in all, Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 is still the first choice for data, audio and video processing around CD, DVD and Blu-ray discs.

    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.
