Free, fast, and functional, Burn4Free is a completely free, easy-to-use burning program that allows you to copy CDs and DVDs without having to settle for lesser quality in your copy. Burn4Free is integrated with Windows Media Player and makes the process of burning copies very straightforward. While the interface is not the best design in the world, once you get used to its rather chaotic layout, you’ll find it helps you easily access the multiple options available. One of the things that makes Burn4Free stand out from its rivals it that it supports a variety of methods for importing your chosen files. Whether you are more of a drag-and-drop kind of user, or you prefer using fly windows, Burn4Free has got it covered. With all the most popular audio file types supported, this program will create a copy that is compatible with almost any device. Burn4Free also has the capability to record and save ISO files. ISO files are basically a perfect representation of everything contained on a disc.
Burn4Free is colorful but without getting in the way of the job at hand. Its directness is refreshing and it offers two user modes – the expert one for those who know what they’re doing and the easy one for those that don’t! Without even opening the program, you can drag and drop files ready for burning. One of the negative about Burn4Free is that does have adware bundled with it, but does provide an option for installing the program without these unwanted additions – just be sure to check the right boxes during the installation process. While the basics are simple enough for the least experienced user, there are also more advanced preferences for those that want to configure the main functions to suit their specific needs. Burn4Free is also quite smart and suggests the type of disc to be burned based on the files you’ve added to the list. If, for example, you load a WMA into the data window, it will suggest burning either an MP3 data disc or an audio CD. Pretty clever for a piece of freeware! There is also some pretty robust support available, with a handy FAQ page giving solutions to the most common operational and installation problems. Burn4Free also offers advanced features including burning MP3 compilations and dual layer support.
