Sharing files between individuals is an easy thing nowadays, considering it can easily be done through most devices which can connect to the Internet. This doesn’t make older methods obsolete, and Active@ Data CD/DVD/Blu-ray Burner is the type of application to prove so, allowing you to still burn data to discs at high-quality.
On the bright side of things, the last step of the installer offers to have the application launched for you so you can quickly take a look over the set of features. As far as the interface goes, the application keeps things simple, with a decent amount of space to add and view files to burn, comfortable log viewer, as well as necessary functions and parameters to configure before triggering a process.
The application is immediately capable of detecting any burning drives on your computer, making them available right away. You can choose the desired target drive from a drop-down menu, as well as the transport method, which can be SPTI, ASPI, or SPTD. unfortunately, the application doesn’t handle any virtual discs, so you’re not quite able to directly burn the content of an ISO file to disc without extracting it first.
Although adding items isn’t done through a drag and drop operation, the context menu helps you easily insert either individual files, or the content of an entire folder. Collections can be saved for later burning on different disks. You can also choose to create directory structures inside the list of items to burn.
There are several other parameters which can be configured before putting the process in motion. For instance, you can attribute a custom label to the disc, as well as to adjust the writing speed. UDF or ISO9660 file systems can be used, with the possibility to verify data, eject media, quit burner, or shut down the PC when done.
All things considered, we can state that Active@ Data CD/DVD/Blu-ray Burner is a pretty straightforward tool which can be used to quickly pile up multiple files and folders into a burnable disc of choice. Target drives are instantly detected, and the set of parameters adds some degree of customization to the process.
