StarBurn is a powerful software solution that allows you to burn new CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray and HD-DVD media, while also providing dedicated tools for creating a disc image and grabbing audio tracks.
You may find the interface a bit overwhelming at first glance, but that’s only because the application boasts so many features. In fact, all the tools are well-organized in the main window, so you can choose the one you need using the sidebar on the left.
StarBurn offers dedicated utilities for managing audio, video and data, but also separate tools for erasing rewritable CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray or HD-DVD discs.
While the “Audio” section offers you the possibility to burn or grab an audio CD, the “Video” screen enables you to burn three different types of discs: VCD, SVCD and DVD.
If you wish to burn a data disc, burn, create or grab an ISO image you must navigate to the “Data” section.
If you decide to burn a new disc, managing the files to be included in the project is extremely easy because StarBurn provides a multi-panel interface showing both the computer and the disc content. Of course, drag and drop support is also included, so it’s easy to place new files on the disc.
Just as usual, you can configure the burning mode and verify written data, but you’re also allowed to create a multisession disc and choose the burning speed.
A comprehensive help file is also available via the official site of the developer and accessible through the dedicated built-in menu, so beginners should find answers to any question regarding usage.
Overall, StarBurn is one of the best tools of its kind and thanks to its rich lineup of features, it can easily fight for the supremacy of this particular software category.
