Accessible freeware application for burning CDs and DVDs
Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP / Windows 8
Hamster Free Burning Studio is a CD burning/management software suite for Windows PCs.
Burning CDs is still something that happens from time to time. Sure, it's not nearly as popular as it was in the heyday of file sharing services, but it's still a time-honored tradition. While most computers come with some kind of burning equipment attached, some people do need a more robust set of tools. This is where software like the Hamster Free Burning Studio comes into play, providing a useful outlet for those who want to burn more material.
There's a lot that's good about this burning studio. Perhaps the best thing about it is that it can erase disks - something that your computer's burning software probably isn't equipped to do. Beyond that, it's very good at creating disk images and it can even write to most types of media. This is a good bit of software for people who are still in love with physical media as well as those who just need to get a bit of work done.
You really only need this software suite if you burn a lot of CDs. If you don't, your included burning software will likely be enough for you. With that said, there's some really nice functionality here and there's no reason to avoid the software. If you want to erase CDs, create CD images, or just burn some of your favorite tracks to a disk, this might be the program for you. Just remember, though, that there's far fewer outlets for using physical media than their used to be and that you may need other programs to get the most use out of the images you create.
