CD/DVD/Blu-ray tools have a wide range of applications. Basic usage includes creating disc images and recording/burning them. When choosing the right tool, it is worth paying attention to the type of media we want to use. The most popular formats are CD (Compact Disc), DVD (Digital Video Disc) and BD (Blu-ray Disc). They offer different capacity, with Blu-ray discs allowing for the biggest volume of storage as they can store from 25 to 450 GB of data. The DVDs can contain between 4.7 and 17 GB, and CDs from between 50 to 870 MB.
The Internet is a source of a large variety of programs which can be used to record and create a disc image, but also to create virtual drives, an example of which is the DAEMON Tools program.
One of the most popular programs in CD/DVD/Blu-ray tools category is Nero Free. It is a free, easy-to-use program thanks to which you can burn an image on a CD or DVD in a few moments and copy entire discs. The free version is not further being developed, but you can download more versatile tools such as Nero Platinum or Nero Burning ROM.
It is also worth recommending CDBurnerXP, a simple program for burning CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, which has, just like Nero Free, an easy-to-use interface and is also available in a portable version known as CDBurnerXP Portable. The program also allows you to convert disc images from the BIN and NRG format to the ISO format.
Thanks to these programs you can quickly and easily perform the most frequently needed activities related to burning discs.
