Open Source or free CD/DVD burners

I recently posted a quasi-review of Nero 7 Ultra Edition ENHANCED. At around the same time, Download Squad had 2 different postings about open source (among other things, this generally means free).

CDBurnerXP 4: Free CD/DVD authoring tool

Despite its name, CDBurnerXP is not just a CD burning application for Windows XP. It’s actually one of the most full featured free CD and DVD burning utilities you’re likely to find for Windows 2000/XP/Vista.

InfraRecorder: Open source CD/DVD burner

InfraRecorder is an open source utility that doesn’t skimp on features or accessibility. Once installed, you’ll notice you can either launch InfraRecorder or InfraExpress. The latter version features a slimmed down interface with wizards for burning data, audio, and video discs. It’s sort of InfraRecorder for dummies. The full feature gives you a ton of options that might confuse folks used to using Nero Smart Start.
