Ashampoo’s Burning Studio 2007 is a decent multimedia suite. Some of its features include: copying data files and folders on to CD/DVD/Blu-ray Discs, ripping and burning audio files to CD/DVD/Blu-ray, copying non copy protected CD/DVD/Blu-ray Discs, creating and burning image files (i.e. iso,cue and bin) to CD/DVD/Blu-ray and erasing rewriteable media (i.e CD-RW and DVD-RW). For copying video files off a CD/DVD/Blu-ray Discs, the program gives you the option of burning it on the fly – provided that you have 2 or more DVD drives – or first copying it on to the hard drive and then duplicate CD/DVD/Blu-ray Discs.
It is a solid package for those you don’t want to spend money on commercial multimedia suites like Nero 7 Ultra Edition or Roxio Creator. Ashampoo’s Burning Studio 2007 is a great alternative. So, hurry up and get your free copy today
Pro's: A nice collection of both audio and video authoring software. It's like a DeepBurner and ImgBurn rolled up in to one. And, you can't beat the price.
Con's: Video authoring is limited. Unlike Nero's Recode and DVDShrink, it can not "shrink" video files. As mentioned before, there is no such thing as a free lunch. For a free license key, you have to provide a valid e-mail address, which Ashampoo will most likely used to flood you with spam about their other products.
