Store data on CDs

Ashampoo Burning Studio is a freemium software program that allows you to burn content onto a disc. It provides support for every kind of file or media that you would need. The application includes assistance for ripping from discs and creating a new playlist for the cd.


Burning remains essential

DVDs are still a useful way of storing data, especially if it is large. USBs are great, but they are limited in scope. Also, many people still have CD players and use them regularly to transport information rather than downloading it.

Software is still needed to take files and place them onto drives. Hence, the free Ashampoo Burning Studio steps in to help with those needs. While it cannot do anything for software that is protected by DRM, it can work with almost anything else.

Ashampoo is known for producing a variety of products, and this factor means the company has reliable customer support. They are known to produce decent level software and are used extensively by professionals and non-professionals.

How do you use Ashampoo Burning Studio for free?

Once you have downloaded Ashampoo, you will need to install it. During the installation process, you will need to give them your email address to receive the license code. There is no need to worry about this being given to other companies.

You will be sent a confirmation letter with a link to open to continue to a website. Here, you can either sign up for a full account with some basic information or skip to get the key. Once you get the key, all you have to do is type it in and the software will be yours for free.

Although the company includes a link to their store in the download, there are no other bundled programs. Ashampoo does have a large number of other products, but none of them synchronize with Burning Studio.

The paid version, Burning Studio 21, provides several more features. It offers scheduled backups, while synchronizing with Movie Studio Pro 3, to allow you to create high-quality presentations. Other benefits include better quality and faster processes.

Is Ashampoo Studio safe?

Yes, the Burning Studio is safe to use. There have been no security issues with this software. Also, you can add password protection to your CDs when you burn them.

The company does take your email during the installation process. However, the user can be rest assured that they will not sell it to any third-party sources. It will be used only for promotional emails. You can easily unsubscribe from them.

What features does Ashampoo Burning Studio have?

The software contains a substantial selection of perks to boost your ability to burn discs. First, it has an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface. This part stands in contrast with Nero’s unattractive and poor design.

Studio clearly shows what you can do with the program, so it is perfect for people who don’t want to have advanced options that needlessly complicate the process. Ashampoo provides the ability to rip music and videos off from discs alongside burning onto them.

It supports CD, DVD, and Blu-ray while allowing you to also work with rewritable discs. For audio, it allows you to use primarily MP3, WMA, and Wave, to burn and rip from the drives.

It provides built-in normalization to keep the quality and has an in-system player to allow you to check if everything went well. For movies, Studio supports up to 1080p HD movies. VCD and SVCD are supported features.

Burning Studio works on Windows 7 through Windows 10. Recently, it was optimized for working on Windows 10.

What is the best free DVD burning software?

Nero is an option for a disc burner, but unfortunately, they only offer a limited trial. Also, even when purchased, it suffers from some fundamental problems. It creates corrupted discs regularly and cannot rewrite previously burnt CDs. 

The Studio is an excellent choice for burning software, but Burnware Free could be an alternative. It does everything well in terms of being a burner. The main problem with it is that it comes with other applications included.

A powerful tool for discs

In conclusion, Burning Studio is a great choice for a burning application. It has no bugs or downsides to installing. As a free app, it will satisfy all your most basic needs. With its ease of use and power, the burner has little going against it.
