CD & DVD Burner & Grabber Core is a tiny and portable application that allows you to burn data CDs and DVDs, audio and video CDs, as well as grab music from audio CDs. It is designed for developers who want to integrate the source code and library into their programs.

Since installation is not a requirement, you can save the executable file to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, enabling you to run it on any machine without prior installers.

What's more, the Windows registry is not updated with new entries, and files are not left behind on the hard disk after removing the program.

The interface consists of a regular window that's not attractive but easy to navigate. You can burn a data CD or DVD by pointing out the folder you want to burn, selecting the device, and specifying the burning speed.

In addition, you can run tests for burning audio and video CDs (WAV, MPEG formats), as well as grab music from an audio CD and select individual tracks for processing. Furthermore, you can read disc and device information.

The simple-to-use program has a good reaction speed and takes a reasonable amount of time to complete a burning session. We have not come across any problems throughout our evaluation, since the app did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. However, CD & DVD Burner & Grabber Core has limited features and has not been updated for a long time.
