One thing that we really love is free CD/DVD/Blu-ray burning software. You could always purchase tools like Nero to get the job done, but it’s just become so darn bloated that I can hardly bring myself to installing it anymore. Plus many of the free alternatives are actually quite nice.

We’d like to add one more to our list of favorite CD/DVD/Blu-ray burning software, and it’s called StarBurn. It does all of the typical things you would expect of the software, but also includes some features that go above and beyond. My favorite thing would be the fact that you can actually mount a disc image or ISO file from within the app, which gives you the chance to test out an ISO before you go through the trouble of burning it. Or maybe it would keep you from having to burn it in the first place, which could salvage some discs. To use this feature just click the StarPort button located on the toolbar.

StarBurn should work fine on your computer if you’re running either 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows XP/2003/Vista. It’s definitely worth checking out!

Tip: Watch out when going through the installation process as it will have a couple of checkboxes that will change your browser’s default search engine and homepage. So don’t blindly keep clicking the “Next” button during setup otherwise you’ll probably miss them.
