CDBurnerXP is mainly used to create backup CDs and DVDs for your data or audio and video discs is a common task that can be carried out using a variety of specialized applications.
Among them, CDBurnerXP holds one of the top spots and is the burner of choice for many users. The software comes as a fairly light package and installs in a minute, so as soon as the setup is completed, you are ready to go.
The first thing you will see when running this tool is a tiny window that asks you to select the thing you want to do, so you have to choose among burning a data disc, an audio one, an ISO image, copy data or audio discs or erase a rewritable disc.
Double-click the option you want and you get an interface similar to the ones seen in other burning applications, with a file browser and a file manager at hand. The clean and attractive interface of CDBurnerXP is very easy to use, as the developers focused solely on the burning functions.
The actual disc writing process could take a while, yet this only depends on the disc and the CD/DVD writer, as well as on the number of files in the queue and the burning speed you select.
Once the burning process comes to an end, you get to see statistics regarding your project and in case something went wrong, error information to help you determine the cause of the issue. This is already a feature that is being offered in all advanced CD burning software, so it is not at all surprising that the developing team behind this utility has implemented it as well.
