DriverIdentifier
Quickly find and download the latest drivers for your PC

DriverIdentifier is a simple tool which aims to quickly locate any available driver updates for your PC.

The program's desktop component is basic in the extreme, just a tiny window with a "Scan Drivers" button. Click this and then watch as the program scans your hardware, identifies each device and then checks the information against a central database.

Once the process is complete, DriverIdentifier will then open a browser window with a list of all your current drivers, including the device name, manufacturer, version number and date. Download links are included where available, and those with updates on offer will be placed at the top.

There are no options to filter or sort the driver list yourself, unfortunately. And you don't have a global "download all updates" option, either. So if your PC is seriously outdated then you'll need to manually click each Update link in turn, check the list of possibilities, download the right one for your system and install it yourself.

Still, DriverIdentifier isn't bad for a free tool. Its simple nature does at least keep the program lightweight (it required only 2.56MB disk space on our test PC), and it's fine for running occasional checks just to make sure that your key drivers are still up-to-date.

Please note, we've seen reports that Driverdentifier installs a browser toolbar by default. Version 3.9 didn't when we tried it, but as with all free PC tools, if you see a "Custom" or "Advanced" option during setup then always choose it, just to make sure that you've got complete control over exactly what you're installing.

Verdict:

It's not exactly packed with features, but DriverIdentifier still provides a simple way to identify outdated drivers and download the latest versions.

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.
