Preserving your photos, movies or music onto optical discs requires a dedicated software that can inscribe the data onto the CD, DVD or Blu-ray. One of the most sought after tools on the market today is Ashampoo Burning Studio and it comes packed with everything you'll ever need to burn your new discs.
First of all, Ashampoo Burning Studio tries to better fit its customers by offering a pleasant interface, so there are multiple skins and several color themes waiting to be selected when the app loads for the first time.
The feature package is impressive and it includes file burning, backup or restore files, burn or rip music, burn movies, copy discs, create or burn images and a bonus in the form of a cover and label designer.
We've started with the basics during our test and gave the burning function a try. The process is very simple and everything goes smoothly, regardless if you're going for a regular CD or DVD or a Blu-ray disc.
On the whole, Ashampoo Burning Studio has tons of features, so that's why it's important to let users configure them all. However, the settings menu has only a few options, but, fortunately, most of the features can be customized directly when using them.
All things considered, Ashampoo Burning Studio is a very strong contender in the burning software category and thanks to its powerful feature pack this software will accommodate the needs and requirements of the vast majority of users.
