CDBurnerXP – The Best Nero Alternative

I’ve been a Nero Burning Software user ever since college. I have never use any burning software aside from Nero until I discovered this free burning software that has almost all the capabilities of the popular Nero. One SUPER BIG ADVANTAGE of CDBurnerXP against Nero is that CDBurnerXP is so lightweight, It consumes less resources than Nero (image below). Other advantages are CDBurnerXP loads much faster, smaller installer file, easy to download and setup, and a lot more user-friendly to use even my grandma can burn her super old songs using CDBurnerXP.

CDBurnerXP is a free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. Everyone, even companies, can use it for free. It does not include adware or similar malicious components.

CDBurnerXP consumes less memory compared to Nero
