Burn-at-once alternatives.

Hi Guys,

I was having trouble creating Data DVD's with Burn-at-once. I thought it was actually me. I went to their site to see and lo-and-behold, BAO doesn't support DVDburning (You have to get a $15 licence key for total DVD support). Oh well, I am a dedicated BAO user, but I have to move on. Freeware-wise, what is available out there that is as powerful for DVD's as BAO is for CD's?

Thanks in advance,

Heeter

Jamie is charging now ? that is odd, with all the bugs it has and the fact that it crashes two much. And not to mention being just a VB frontend for cdrdao and mkisofs, I am surprised he is charging now..

I don't use it, mainly for the fact that he is a cocky jerk. I use Nero exclusively .. I don't know of any freeware program that will do it .. Did you try the windows xp burning engine ???

Nets,

I was going to check it out, but the title suggests CD's only. But I am going to try it faithfully.

Hi Nets,

Couple of things noticed so far, CDBurnerXP does not associate itself with known file extensions (bin/cue, iso). With BAO, you were able to double-click on a file and that would automatically open BAO. Another thing is overburn, something I regularly used with BAO. Can I associate file extensions with CDBXP? Is there an Overburn option? I cannot seem to find it anywhere.

Thanks,

Heeter

You can manually associate the file types in Windows. Open up Explorer, hit Tools>Folder Options, switch to the File Types tab, look for BIN and CUE, and change the default handler applications.

Re: Overburning - I've never really tried it myself, but according to the FAQ, it works without changing any settings:
Q: Is overburning possible?
A: Yes. Just add as much data to CD layout as fits to the disc and start burning (ignore warning messages of CDBurnerXP Pro if any).
