Gold Burn is a software application that provides users with a simple means of burning all sort of files to CDs, DVDs, BDs and ISOs and extract contents from discs or erase them.
You should be careful during the installation process, as it offers to download a number of products that you do not necessarily need for the program to work properly, yet they can be skipped.
The interface you are met with presents a pretty plain and simple build, as it consists of a navigation pane and a pane in which to view detailed information. All operations available are run through a wizard, so that even less experienced users can easily work with it, as you will be guided every step of the way.
First and foremost, you should know that it is possible to save all types of files and entire folders to DVDs, CDs, HD DVD and BDs, by selecting an appropriate method to access devices (SCSI transport) and following the on-screen instructions.
When it comes to music, you can burn discs with it, as well as rip audio tracks from a CD and convert them to a WMA format. In addition to that, you can create video CDs and super CDs with MPG files, and video DVDs from DVD directories.
It is possible to erase DVDs and CDs with just a few clicks, as well as view device information (e.g. vendor, buffer size, read and write speed, supported discs etc.) and create or burn ISO images.
Although it may sometime affect the system’s performance, this is quite normal for this type of utility. Tasks are performed in suitable amount of time, the interface is accessible to all user categories and there are sufficient options to keep you busy for quite a while. Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say Gold Burn is a pretty efficient and reliable piece of software.
