Media Feature Pack for Windows 8 N/ KN 1.0
Equip your Windows 8 N/ KN editions with Windows Media Player and more

If you're using a system with an N/ KN edition of Windows 8 then you'll probably already have noticed that it's missing Media Player, and a few related technologies. And at first this may not seem like a big deal, as you can always install some other media player instead.

But, unfortunately, it may not be as simple as that.

Some software packages make the mistake of assuming that these Windows technologies are always there, and as a result, won't work properly on N or KN editions (some programs fail to install, others might crash or simply not perform particular tasks as they should).

There is an easy solution, though, and that's just to install this Media Feature Pack for Windows 8. In one step you'll add Media Player and its supporting layers to your Windows 8 installation, and hopefully any third-party media related tools and applications will then work exactly as they should.

Verdict:

An easy way to restore normal media tools and technologies to Windows 8 N and KN editions

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.
