billon on 2 May 2017

cdrtfe (cdrtools Frontend) is a collection of CD/DVD/BD tools for burning and audio extraction. In addition to standard data recording, the program includes support for media container formats like XCD, (S)VCD, and DVD-video, audio formats (redbook), CD-Plus mixed format (audio+data) and creation and writing of ISO images and bootable discs. The program can also create CDs that "overburn" and add up to 13% more data than normal discs. Audio extraction formats include WAV, MP3, OGG, FLAC, and more.

The program is a front-end that combines several burning tools including cdrtools (cdrecord, mkisofs, readcd, cdda2wav), Mode2CDMaker and VCDImager.

@ User2
Thanks for that...and just in time. You seem to be the only one with that crucial piece of information on the whole web.

Direct linking is nice but that will miss updates. This page seems to list the latest version (1.5.2 at this time): http://cdrtfe.sourceforge.net/cdrtfe/download_en.html

@Shadeclan: Maybe your virus scanner software makes a full scan of all exe files when the menu is displayed, although the files are just opened to pick the icon. (I had the same problem when I used "MS Essentials" for a while.)

Midas on 2012-09-14 15:58

I'm having the same problem with another launcher, and horst explanation seems pretty accurate to me...

Napiophelios on 2015-03-15 16:22

I have used this program for a long time and I really like it;
I have always used it to launch programs,
but recently I have been using it to launch shortcuts to folders
and 2 out of 3 times that I do it,it crashes explorer.

Has any one else had this happen?

Why this oldtimer suddently show up ?

Checker on 2015-09-07 18:32

@Wolfghost: I think it's because smaragdus became R2.
So it's: Andrew Lee R5 + Toxteth O'Grady R3 + smaragdus R2 = 10 points

Link updated. Thanks AndtheWolf and Baas.

The forked version of this project you're now linking to SUCKS!
I also find it odd/concerning that the links to the 'Original version' (Executable|Source code) on the downloads page are empty zips.

The 'Original' SysTrayPlay (Final 10603 - circa 2001) has worked flawlessly across various versions of Windows up to and including Vista.

I think it deserves a local download link, to be hosted by TPFC.
