BurnAware Professional is a complete set of tools that allows you to burn all kinds of discs, be them CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray discs. The Professional edition of the program is the most comprehensive one, and it includes all the disc-burning tools offered by BurnAware. However, most of these tools are designed for both beginners and advanced users.

The main window of BurnAware Professional consists basically of a big panel that provides you with access to all the offered tools through a set of self-explanatory and categorized icons. When you click on any of them, the corresponding tool will launch in an independent window, which includes a command ribbon to make its use easier. Where it is required, the tools include their own file system navigator, so that you can add source files to your compilation even without the need of leaving the program. However, if you prefer, you can also drag your files from Windows Explorer, as the program supports drag-and-drop. Besides, you can always select the burning drive and speed, as well as the target disc type and size (from a 650MB CD to an XL 100GB Blu-ray disc).

Among the tools BurnAware Professional includes are data disc, bootable disc, custom disc, audio CD, MP3 CD, and Video DVD. Besides, the program comes with a complete set of tools to work with ISO image files – it allows you to both create ISO image files and burn them back into blank discs. The program also includes some utilities to erase blank discs, display a disc information, and verify discs. But here comes the main difference between the Professional and the Free editions of the program – the Professional edition includes several high-end extra functions, like direct disc copy, data recovery, and multiburn (that allows you to burn multiple discs simultaneously, using all your available drives).

All in all, BurnAware Professional is a disc-burning application that is as powerful as easy to use. The program has been designed to cover all your disc-burning needs, so that you will hardly need any extra tools. Besides, the program is fully compatible with all MS Windows versions and editions available today.
