Imgburn – A great image/cd/dvd burner

ImgBurn is a free Disc burning utility which is capable of doing lots of other tasks besides Burning image files. No matter what sort of formats, it just works. It works not only with standard ISO disk image files, but with proprietary formats like Nero’s .NRG, and Pinnacle’s .PDI, HP RecordNow!’s .GI formats—something you won’t see in commercial programs, such as Nero Burning ROM.
