Today, if you want to create image files or burn data to various different data carriers, you no longer need an expensive burning program. Corresponding hardware and the advertising-financed firing tool ImgBurn are completely enough.
The freeware setup program may install additional software on your computer. Therefore, make sure during the installation that there are no fields that can be used to prohibit the installation of additional programs. The additional software is downloaded over the Internet and can therefore not be checked by us for viruses, spyware, Trojans or other malware.
If your antivirus software sounds an alarm, please take this seriously and cancel the installation.
Unfortunately, some adware installs itself unsolicited. If there is unwanted or harmful software on the computer despite your caution, AdwCleaner or CCleaner may be able to help. You can find more recommendations in our Special Adware & Remove Spyware section.
ImgBurn – Features and Supported Formats
The graphical user interface of ImgBurn is simple and clear. Here you will find all functions – such as the creation of image files from files or physical data carriers (quasi “virtual data carriers”) as well as the burning of files to corresponding storage media. You can also use an image file to check whether the data on a disc is correct, i.e. identical to the data in the file – or whether an error occurred during burning. This can happen if the firing speed is too high – so you can set it manually before the actual firing process. Pure audio CDs can also be created and burned – they can also be played on older devices without MP3 support.
Supported formats when burning with ImgBurn
ImgBurn supports a wide range of file formats and disk types for all operations. Supported formats are BIN, CCD, CDI, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI, which can be written to CD, DVD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray discs with ImgBurn. Supported formats for burning audio-only CDs are AAC, APE, FLAC, M4A, MP3, MP4, MPC, OGG, PCM, WAV, WMA and WV files. These file types can also be burned to data discs such as CD, DVD and Blu-ray.
Supported operating systems
Under Windows ImgBurn runs on nearly all editions and versions – from Windows 95 to Windows 10, no matter if 32- or 64-bit version. If you want to run the program under Linux, you need the emulation software Wine – which is also available for download. In the standard version ImgBurn is in English, but you can also download a German language file.
If you prefer not to use the current version of ImgBurn because of the danger of adware, you can use other software. So there are alternatively CDBurnerXP, InfraRecorder and BwgBurn for burning under Windows.
