EMCO MAC Address Scanner 1.3.1
Quickly collect the MAC addresses for all your networked PCs

The MAC Address Scanner is a handy free tool that will quickly collect MAC addresses for all the PCs on your network.

This can come in useful for a range of network tools. Wake-on-LAN utilities typically require a MAC address before they'll allow you to wake up a particular computer, for instance, while some security packages may restrict access on the basis of MAC addresses. You can collect these manually, but it's tedious, particularly for large networks: using an automated tool like the MAC Address Scanner makes more sense.

The program doesn't require any great networking expertise. Launch it, and the MAC Address Scanner will detect your current networks (both workgroups and domains). Choose one from the left, launch the Enumeration Wizard, step through it accepting all the default settings, and that's just about it. Once you click Finish the program will begin to scan your network, looking for other computers and capturing their MAC address.

This can take a little while, as the MAC Address Scanner must work its way through every subnet, extracting addresses from network protocols if possible, or contacting PCs directly if not. You can just leave the program to do its work, though. And once its finished, the Export wizard will save your network details to XML or CSV for easy analysis elsewhere.

Build 1.3.1 brings this change:

-Microsoft Windows 8.1 and .NET Framework 4.5.1 are supported

Verdict:

It's not exactly lightweight - the installation folder is a surprisingly bulky 41MB - but EMCO MAC Address Scanner is still a handy tool which could save you a great deal of time, particularly if you're responsible for a large network

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
