What free DVD burning software you use?

Postby DeltaLima on Thu Mar 16, 2006 11:44 pm

I need to remove some files on HD. What free DVD software there is to burn data with a compare after the burn to ensure I will ba able to retreive my original files after my system cleanup?

Yet I only found DeepBurner but it does not support verification after burn.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Well, you can use DeepBurner to burn, then run a transfer rate test in Nero CD Speed for see if the disc is readable. If you end up with a nice smooth curve with no slowdowns, you're in good shape.

Yeah I found CDCheck that will compare files, pretty cool.

But now my problem is with an ISO file I have. DeepBurner only burn 363MB of it instead of 4GB. Don't know what's wrong.

I tried BackupMyFiles that works with a rightclick over a files or directory and when I tried with the ISO it prompted my if I wanted to burn the image of the ISO or the file itself. Unfortunatly, BackupMyFiles does not support RW medias.

Well, I think I will install Nero that comes with the drive. Forgot this was included in the box. =D>

Keep suggestions coming, may serve those who bought OEM package.

DVDDecrypter or Imgburn will burn image files and verify,I highly recommend them for DL burning.

For the "mission critical" stuff, I use QuickPar to make recovery files. That way, even if part of the data is corrupt, I should be able to recover it.

Just a thought.
BenQ 1655, BenQ 1620, LG 4167, Plex PX-716SA, Samsung SH-S162L, SH-S182M, Pioneer 111D, Lite-On SHM-165H6S and 1.9TB of HDDs to feed 'em and an X2/4800 to crunch for 'em.

a free burning app: burnatonce
www.burnatonce.com

if you want to burn DVDs with it, you need to install cdrecord-ProDVD. it is free for research or educational porposes.
be sure to read this faq: DVD General FAQ
in it you'll find a link to the ProDVD README which contains a key.

i've used burnatonce in the past for burning CDs, it's great. haven't used it for DVDs though.
i probably will try it out sometime.
