When it comes to burning discs, the likes of Nero and Roxio have their place. However, while it is possible that you will occasionally need the features provided by such suites – if you are creating video discs or photo slideshows, for example – it is more likely that most of your burning sessions involve little more than copying a few files or folders to disc. This is where a lightweight tool such as Tiny Burner is ideal.
Rather than overwhelming users with endless features, Tiny Burner focuses on the basics of disc burning – the process of getting files from your computer onto CD, DVD or Blu-ray. There are no fancy extras to be found here, and if you are looking to work on complicated disc projects, this is certainly not the tool for you. However, if you have found the built in disc burning support offered by Windows to be a little too basic, Tiny Burner may be for you.
As well as being light on system resources – so much so that it can be run from a USB drive as a portable app – Tiny Burner is also light on the pocket as it is free of charge. Using the program could hardly be simpler as queuing up files to burn to disc involves little more than dragging then onto the program window. There is also a floating drop window that can be used to add files to the burn queue if the program window gets buried.
Tiny Burner is compatible with a huge range of drives and can be used in both 32- and 64-bit version of Windows. As well as making it easy to create discs from your files, this free burning tool can also be used to create and burn ISO images.
