More than just burning discs, as its name suggests, gBurner can help you carry out many other operations. The tool has a user-friendly interface and it’s quite simple to find the desired function by simply navigating through the tabs. Besides, the program allows dropping as well as pasting files directly from Windows file manager. Moreover, it can automatically detect the type of disc inserted, and about that, I’m glad to say that it supports practically all discs, even BDXL, which have a storage capacity of 128GB.

As to data discs, gBurner supports multi-session as well as adding bootable information. Moreover, various types of media discs can be created, such as audio CDs, VCDs, super video CDs and DVDs. While the tool allows ripping audio in various file formats with automatic naming, it doesn’t seem to support extracting video. If copies of a disc are needed, you can copy its content to another disc or to an image file. Besides, the program can burn discs from ISO files, and luckily, multiple file types are supported, including WIM, VMDK, VHD and VDI. Likewise, it works with various file systems, like FAT, NTFS and EXT. Finally, the application supports some extra features that deserve mentioning. For instance, it can create bootable USB drives that you can use to install Windows. Additionally, it can also erase re-writable discs.

All in all, gBurner is a very versatile tool in terms of creating, copying and burning discs and it also has an ample support of formats and disc types. Therefore, it’s a product that I recommend for any type of user. However, since there are so many applications with a similar purpose out there, I advise you to take a look at a few before making the final decision.
