BurnAware Professional is a full-featured disc-burning tool that allows you to burn all kinds of CD, DVD, and Blu-ray discs. The program offers you a wide range of options designed to fit all your disc-burning needs. Besides, the program also includes some extra tools designed to work with disc image files (e.g., ISO files) and to recover the data stored in damaged or scratched discs, among others.

In general terms, the program offers intuitive and easy-to-use interfaces. The main window acts as a main menu with icon-based shortcuts to all the offered tools, classified in four sections ─ data, multimedia, disc images, and utilities. Every shortcut runs the tool it refers to in a separate window. As you may have imagined, data section allows you to crate data CDs, DVDs, or Blur-ray discs, though there is also a fourth shortcut that allows you to create a custom disc with the file system of your choice. Of course, this option is mostly designed for advanced users.

The multimedia section, on the other hand, allows you to crate audio CDs, MP3 discs, and video DVDs. The disc images section includes tools both to burn disc image files into blank discs and to create disc image files from your existing discs. In this section, there is also a tool to burn a disc image file into multiple blank discs at once, making use of two or more disc-burning drives simultaneously. Finally, the utilities section offers you several tools to perform tasks like erasing re-writable discs, copying all kinds of discs, and recovering data from damaged or scratched discs, among others. All the program's tools are designed to be simple and easy to use, and many of them include a file system navigation panel for easy source file location and selection.

In short, BurnAware Professional is a comprehensive set of disc-burning tools that will surely fit all your needs. The program is easy to use, and it is suitable for both novice and expert users.
