CDBurnerXP Portable, ...burn CDs and DVDs for free!
"It is hard to complain about the price or the feature set, but I found that CDBurnerXP was unreliable on large files, such as DVDs with a file size greater than 1GB. After burning coasters when attempting to do this, I eventually gave up." —ianmacm (a user), (Sep 04, 2013)
"Given its ease of use and powerful suite of features, CDBurnerXP may become one your favorite software products for burning data and creating ISO images." —Ana Marculescu, (July 22nd, 2014 15:31 GMT)
"I don't like to complain about free software that works well, but I recently decided to minimize the software footprint on my system and keep it that way. CDBurnerXP [v4.2.2.984] requires you to install Microsoft's .NET Framework 2.0, so for now I'm sticking with the leaner InfraRecorder Portable..." —Jon L. Jacobi, (Mar 20, 2011 12:00 AM)
