The developers of ImgBurn have just released version 2.5 of their lightweight DVD burning software which added some interesting features to the already excellent software program. The biggest quirks that new users can have with the DVD burning application is the user interface that makes it sometimes hard to understand how to perform a certain operation in ImgBurn if you try to run it for the first time or only occasionally. It can be quite confusing to find out how you can use the program to burn a video_TS folder, disk images, bootable operating system discs even with the wizard being displayed in the beginning that directs users to some of the operations that Imgburn supports.
A basic example is the burning of a music CD. You can't just point the program at a music folder or files but need to create a cue file first, and then burn the music CD with the help of that cue file.
One great way of finding out how to perform a special operation in ImgBurn is to take a look at the guides that have been created by the developers. These guides explain how to perform more or less all supported operations using the application. They include guides on how to burn bootable Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating system disks, audio CDs, DVD video, image files such as ISO or IMG and double-layer or Bu-Ray disks.
Even users with past experience with other DVD burning software might need to take a look at the guides to ensure they are performing the right steps to burn the disk the right way. All ImgBurn guides can be found on the ImgBurn website.
Here is a short selection of the most popular guides:
