"InfraRecorder is a CD/DVD burning solution."

Overview

There is no shortage of CD/DVD burning tools on the market, but maybe InfraRecorder has enough features, ease of use and flair that will convince you to give it a try. It is also free so you don’t have any excuse for skipping it! Packed with features that allow the creation of CDs and DVDs, InfraRecorder also boasts Windows Explorer integration and support for custom data and audio projects. Let’s analyze the features of InfraRecorder in this quick article!

Installation

The keywords that manage to define what InfraRecorder is all about are lightweight and fast. Boasting a setup kit of jut 4MB in size, you will have no problems downloading and installing this fantastic little tool. In terms of system requirements, there is absolutely nothing to worry about because as long as your PC sports more than 32MB of RAM, you should be fine.

What is more, all of the available versions of the Windows operating systems since Win98 are supported. You should be happy to find out that InfraRecorder doesn’t come with adware/spyware or other programs bundled either. Let’s move on to InfraRecorder’s interface!

Interface

A very easy to use program that will allow you to burn CDs and DVDs, InfraRecorder offers an intuitive interface. A window with up to 4 panels is provided upon selecting the type of operation (for example, Data Disc). The 4 panes are the Explorer view, Disc layout, a list with all of your files and folders that you wish to burn and another window when you can make certain modifications such as edit a file name. The menu bar as well as the drag and drop feature can be used too.

Pros

InfraRecorder offers a wide range of excellent features. For example, custom data such as data discs and audio CDs can be easily created, disc images can be recorded and you can also create disc copies for backup. When it comes to burning MP3 files to a CD, you are presented with two choices. You can either use the Audio Disc feature and the files are burned using the .cda format or you can preserve the MP3 format by choosing the Data Disc feature.

Another useful feature of InfraRecorder that is usually only found in commercial software products is that multiple copies of a CD can be burned. The best aspect of InfraRecorder lies in its functionality and ease of use. There are no plug-ins, splash screen or add-ons here – just a fast, free and effective burning tool that works on a multitude of systems.

Cons

InfraRecorder doesn’t provide its users with DVD encoding and as a result you can’t burn DVDs to be played on a DVD player. Let’s hope a future release fixes this issue.

Alternatives

There are a lot of burning programs out there. Let’s take a look at some of them. The alternatives to InfraRecorder are: ImgBurn, CDBurnerXP, Brasero, Roxio Creator, Nero Kwik Media and many more.

Conclusion

InfraRecorder is an excellent tool that you can successfully use for the creation of your CDs and DVDs without much hassle and with its outstanding features, it is certainly worth your time to explore it!

Requirements: 32 MiB RAM, 8.2 MiB of available hard disk space.
