CD Manipulator is a very easy to use software solution designed to offer full control over you discs, allowing you to create images and backups with just a few clicks.
Although you may be tempted to think otherwise when reading the spec list, CD Manipulator relies on a very intuitive and straightforward interface, with all the features displayed directly in the main window.
You can thus read from CDs to image files, view tracks from CD, write from image files to CD, master CD and image files, duplicate CDs, analyze sub channel info and refresh CD information, all from the same simple window.
Of course, each of the aforementioned tools comes with its very own pack of settings, allowing you to pick the drive to read and, if needed, to choose the name of the image file.
Additionally, you can choose between single-session and multi-session modes, with dedicated options to configure data and audio speed.
If you wish to write a new project on a disc, you can add image files and create folders; in case you're planning to use a re-writable disc, you have the option to erase all the media.
The “Settings” screen is minimal and, among others, it allows you to use an external skin for the application and thus make it look more appealing.
In conclusion, CD Manipulator is a recommended tool that can be safely be used by beginners and more experienced users alike, who want to keep things simple.
