Top quality piece of software, does everything that I could ask of a CD/DVD writer and works quickly - even when going to my ancient parallel port Freecom drive!

Why pay for this type of software or run the risk of using pirated stuff when you can get this for free?

Great User interface, very intuitive, one of the best open source software I have seen for a while.

mmm... i had different problems using it with a LG GSA-T10N... :/

and...why it's no possible burn in DAO mode?!??

I like this program. It uses the tango icons in its GUI, which I like, as it intigrates well with my theme. It has great support for burning data disks. Great for backing up, music and other things such as image burning. It has fair image file support, which is a plus, considering it's opensource.

Been using for a few months and have had no problem with any burns. Works very well and is easy to use.

Why do I need to pay $$$ for nero or easy cd. It does the bunning job that you need perfectly

I was searching for a sleek and functional Burning Applicatian that a) fits my needs and b) can be installed on noob-machines.

Works perfect, looks good, is an open-source project. What do you want more?

An awesome piece of software.

given by S][evo on November 22, 2007

This application is simply excellent. 1: It's clean. 2: The interface is visually appealing & well organized (specifically speaking in regards to the menus and 3-pane layout). 3: It's SMALL (why should you use 400MB-1.5GB for a disc-burning application!?). 4: It just works. I just finished burning an ISO image as I was writing this. Tested it, and it's good. 5: There is a portable version that I can throw on my thumb drive, take anywhere and run on any computer without installing.

This toy is perfect.

Great -- Nero toasted 4 of my cds without explanation and this turned out to be a perfect match for my needs

Only problem -- it's a bit slower than Nero

Nero & Roxio can go to hell. This program is exactly what th world needed in a free CD burning utility.

I've been using Nero for some time, but was fed up by the massive disk hungriness about that application.
Okay, it can do a lot more - but how many times did I need all that functionality... not ever once anytime.

InfraRecorder showed me a complete other side about applications, and is helping me a great deal about finding all those opensource projects...

This will save me a lot of money...

In the past, i was used NERO for burning CD. InfraRecorder is a very great free option for burning CD, i prefer this one and NERO is not more ever in my hardisk.

Fantastic application. Light weight, just does what it is supposed to do. No bloat, no extra services, no memory hogging, works like a charm.

Won't copy a simple kid's game CD. Why not? In COPYDISC mode, button to copy won't light up. Tried on two different computers. Open source "sounds" good, but more often than not, doesn't work at all, or at least very well. Not worth the trouble.

given by Manny on February 10, 2009

it doesn't write applications well, i tried many times and i got corrupted applications (.exe files) everytime.

excellent OSS-Tool: Small, effizient, easy to use, and works perfectly.
Unlike some other OSS-Tools there, InfraRecorder isnt just a replacement, its an enhancement!

For windows XP After install, prepare everything to burn but everything OK button can not press!
Uninstall process leave menu in Program menu.
Can anyone use?

Does just what I need it to do and I can share it round all my mates without any issues. Thanks heaps for a great piece of software.

given by Ian Dee on September 14, 2009

Really good to use something so simple. Beats installing the
bloated Nero application when all you need to do is burn an
image of create a music CD etc. I use it all the time!

Thanks for taking the time to create it!

given by Randy Rampy on September 22, 2009

Won't write a disk on my (admittedly old) external USB drive. Everything looks good but the OK button is always grayed out. Windows XP acknowledges the drive as a burner, but InfraRecorder still does not.
Guess I'll be looking for another solution. I guess u get what u pay for, eh?

given by Tim Rowe on October 2, 2009

First attempt to copy an audio disk produced a disk that was unplayable. All subsequent attempts to access an audio disk caused system stops (BSOD), losing all other work open on the computer at the time. Too dangerous to use. The uninstall program only partially removed the software, leaving footprints all over my system. Nice front end, but very shoddy behind the scenes.

I installed v. .5 on an XP and on a Win 7 computer. It worked on both (Audio Disc/Data Disc to CD features tested)and is very easy to use, which is a good thing, because the only tech support is a forum which is not very active or responsive.

You cannot encode mp3 files, but you can burn them to a CD using the data disc feature.

I recommend the program.

simply brilliant.. :)
not a single glitch.
I recommend it. :)

Software easy to handle, but written cds arent readable. Even from the cd burner where the cd gets created. Installed other burning software - no problems.

given by Larry G. on January 3, 2012

Downloaded InfraRecorder and IR wouldn't even recognize an audio CD (tried three different CD's). I have XP and use Firefox - both with latest updates. Would recommend you try something else. IR not usable BUT, it only costs time, no money!!! Now I have to fall back on to Windows Medial Player - uggh!
