Defender does not like 4.5 either. Tried 32 and 64 bit, neither will run. Standing with 4.3 64-bit.

@PAFuser - I'd recommend running it past VirusTotal rather than relying on Defender. It's very likely a false positive.

MoisheP on 2020-02-05 19:40

Finally, v. 4.8 can be installed on Windows without being aborted by Defender and it is no longer flagged by VirusTotalcom engines. The last two versions had been unusable for those reasons.

@ 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

@ Ascend4nt: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Finally! After evaluating every burning app in this section from top to bottom, this is the first one that has a plain and simple "CD Copy" function.

wozza on 2008-08-28 02:33

agree with steph. You'd think something as simple as a straight cd copy would be easy to find. Well, it's not, and here it is.

juvera on 2015-06-14 03:01

Download link + webpage are no longer current (they have disappeared!).
The name has been changed to carbon-cd: http://www.rizonesoft.com/software/carbon-cd/ ???

"Copy or move the contents of $INSTDIR to a folder of your choice":
I just extracted using uniextract (2. try: 7zip, same result). There is no $INSTDIR, only $PLUGINSDIR, SOUNDS and files imgburn.exe, imgburnpreview.exe, readme.txt.
I suppose this altogether is equivalent to $INSTDIR ? At least it seems to work and afterwards the ini is 18KiB and it created dir "Log Files".

smaragdus on 2015-04-15 04:09

I confirm that *fang-face* is right- the extraction of the latest version of ImgBurn (2.5.8.0) with Universal Extractor version 1.6.1 or with 7-Zip version 9.20 doesn't create any '$INSTDIR' directory.

"Includes disc testing, verification (that files are exactly the same as those on the disc)"

Re verification: I'm not sure, but I think the program only verifies that the burned content is readable. I don't see the source drive active during this process.

I always verify with WinMerge after burning:
