InfraRecorder is an open-source solution for burning discs

InfraRecorder is a small, open-source application that offers you access to basic disc burning tools. It comes with extremely low system requirements and can be easily used by anyone, regardless of their PC knowledge level. The program efficiently handles CDs, DVDs, and other optical disc types.

InfraRecorder includes all the tools that you would expect to find in a program of this type. But this doesn't necessarily mean that it can successfully fulfill its purpose. While I was testing the program, it crashed multiple times with no apparent reason. This might be considered a big drawback by some users. Crashing during the burning process will lead to permanent disc damage.

In addition to burning features, InfraRecorder is also able to create ISO images by using data from various discs. You can then burn these images to other disc types. Also, when copying audio tracks from CDs, you are offered the opportunity to save them to audio formats like: MP3, OGG, WAV, etc.

I admit that InfraRecorder didn’t impress me so much. I would recommend it only for the fact that it’s open source.
