CDuke is a simple-to-use program that can burn data to CDs and DVDs. It addresses all types of users, whether they are experienced with this kind of tools or not.
The interface of the application is based on a standard window with a layout familiar to the one of Nero Express.
Therefore, thanks to the Explorer-based folder structure, you can effortlessly navigate directories on your computer and add items to the CD or DVD selection list by using the "drag and drop" functionality.
It is possible to burn a data CD, DVD video, photo, audio or MP3 CD, as well as to select the writing device. CDuke also gives you the possibility of ripping multiple sound files from an audio CD simultaneously, erasing a rewritable disc and viewing disc information.
CDuke requires a pretty low amount of CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't burden the computer's overall performance. It has a good response time and finishes a ripping or burning session rapidly, without hanging, crashing or popping up error dialogs. We have not come across any difficulties throughout our testing.
All in all, CDuke delivers a straightforward solution when it comes to CD and DVD burning, and its features can be seamlessly figured out by all users, even the ones with little or no background in such utilities.
