I'm not so sure I completely agree with that comment. ImageBurn is a little clunky on the file / folder add.
You have to choose what you want to add before you look, either files or folders, and IB gives you two choices, instead of one choice--search for files or folders.
When it comes to navigating, IB relies on icons with popups, instead of icons and text.
You get NO explorer type window for dragging and dropping or choosing files or folders to add to a compilation. All you get is a search for file OR folders dialog box, and that is it. This means you cannot see any files on the disk, or on your hard drive--unless you are adding files OR folders--again, you can't search for both at the same time (this is REALLY annoying).
It cycles the tray for verification, which is a nice touch.
It has NO bloat at all.
It starts fast.
It burns cleanly and quickly.
It is small!!!!
It seems to work well.
It has many advanced options.
It is a great image burner, creating images easily and boot images also, but ok, all burning software should do that.
It supports perhaps ALL image extensions, which means you don't have to convert it--hello Nero, get your act together.
I can't burn CDs from wavs, etc.
My conclusion is that I could use this software. However, since Foobar uses the Nero dlls to burn FLAC to CDROM, I'll probably stick with Nero Bloat 8, and for all the bloat Nero has today, it still is a good program, but it takes too long to boot up. I'd like to find a reliable alternative to Nero that can burn images, data, and audio CDs, although burning audio CDs is something I raely do these days, being that my car stereo and home stereo have USB ports and accept SD cards.
