ISO Workshop – Take command of your data and your optical disc drive

iso_workshopWorking with optical discs is still a big part of computing. Despite recent trends to go completely digital, using CD’s and DVD’s is still a reliable way to store, share and transport data from one computer, one person to another.  This is one of the reasons why I am really thankful for apps like ISO Workshop. It’s a disc imaging utility for Windows.

ISO Workshop is specifically designed for disc image management, conversion and burning. The app has a very simple user interface and enables you to make ISO images, extract specific files and folders from disc images.  You can create disc backups by copying items to an ISO or BIN image file, convert different disc image files into ISO or BIN formats.  You can also burn standard and bootable ISO images as well as CUE images to blank discs.

The application is pretty cool. It supports ISO, CUE, and BIN files  as well as others. It also supports CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD+R DL, and BD-R/RE disk formats; and will verify all images written to discs.

ISO Workshop is one of those applications that you really want to have in your PC’s toolbox.  Its easy to use, works with a number of different image formats as well as disc types.  If you don’t have a tool like this, this is one that you really need to take a hard look at ISO Workshop. The price is right and it does a great job of giving you the basics.

Burn your CD, DVD and Blu-ray Disc in Full HD quality quickly and easily with Ashampoo Burning Studio 11

Take complete control of your DVD and Blu-ray burning process with this great Windows application.

HD movies are awesome, but not everyone has the bandwidth to be able to stream and view home movies on the Internet. With three kids, and two of them under the age of 7, my wife and I are always taking movies of the kids for relatives who live out of state. Helping them view those movies can be a challenge, as not everyone has the level of Internet service that I do. This is why I really like Ashampoo Burning Studio. It’s a complete CD/DVD utility for Windows.

Ashampoo Burning Studio is fast, easy to use and efficient, as it handles all of your data – files, audio and video authoring tasks without sacrificing its famous ease of use. In version 10 they added a bunch of new features, but the program is still easy to use. Everything is explained to you as you do it.

The application’s main focus is its authoring capabilities for building video and audio discs. It fully supports 720p and 1080p HD video for Blu-ray discs. All the encoding is handled by Ashampoo Burning Studio. All the authoring tools have been overhauled. You now use the same new integrated editor for building DVD and Blu-ray video disks with menus.

In addition, there is a new Autoplay Editor module that you can use to build auto-starting data discs with attractive interactive menus. It also has a new Audio Player that plays audio files and audio CDs without leaving the program.

Nero Burning ROM 11 gets high in the charts

Nero fiddled while Rome burned — but you won’t have to fiddle with Nero for long before your disc burns. But while this is a true classic in the disc burning genre, Nero Burning ROM also has some useful add-on features.

The heart of the software is its ability to create all sorts of discs: CDs, DVDs and even Blu-ray discs. Depending on the format, you can easily create audio, video or data discs, or even a combination.

As for the added features, you can do everything from password protecting a disc to automatically splitting a collection of files across multiple discs. There’s even a special writing feature that makes it much more likely you’ll be able to read or recover data even if the disc gets damaged. And for added security, there’s a built-in virus checker to make sure nothing unwanted gets on the disc.

But for all the features, usability matters. To be fair, Nero does lack some of the “quick start” features of its rivals that allow you to simply choose a common disc format and get straight to work. That’s not to say it’s an overly complicated program to use: if you can find your way round Windows Explorer without problems you should be fine with Nero.

Performance is also fine: with most modern computers you shouldn’t get any freezes or glitches while burning.
