    I've used ImgBurn for several years. http://imgburn.com/
    It's lightweight, very easy to use, intuitive, user friendly and very reliable.

    I have used it to burn CDs, DVDs, Dual Layer DVDs (great for that as it suggests the ideal layer breaking points), to make ISO images to the hard drive, to burn ISO images onto discs, to burn music CDs...
    And I'm yet to encounter any problem. I can't remember it crashing or damaging discs in my computer. (I understand it can even burn BluRays).

    Despite the latest version being from 2013, it still do what it has to do. Have been using it since Windows XP and now works perfect with Win10.

    Also: it's free.

    I agree with everything Ruben has said above. I primarily use ImgBurn to burn blu-rays mostly, for backups and for friends and stuff. ImgBurn gave me some problems a little while back, which I have now resolved, and I took a look at some other free programs and found BurnAware Free to be a great alternative to ImgBurn. Honestly, I would start with ImgBurn as it's very very reliable and way way more fully featured but if you don't need all the fancy settings and stuff like that, I can recommend BurnAware Free as I've had very good results with that as well.

    Thanks for burnaware it does what I need!

    I can't work out imgburn how to make cds or dvds for that matter but Burnaware does both and I don't need to decode from flac coz the plugin never worked on my old nero.

    Highly recommend BurnAware-Free thanks for the link buffalofloyd https://fileforum.betanews.com/downl...e/1212419334/2

    My next question I will post a new thread
