ImgBurn writes most types of image files for CD, DVD, HD DVD and Blu-ray burning. It supports the latest writers (including booktype/bitsetting on many of the major ones such as BenQ, LiteOn, NEC, Plextor, Sony etc.). You can also ImgBurn to erase/format your rewritable media.

Includes disc testing, verification (that files are exactly the same as those on the disc) and supports many world languages.

"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:

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.

"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".

Step 2 under "How to extract" reads "The application files are in the $INSTDIR folder". I don't think that is specific enough because it doesn't cater for people who are less technical. I would suggest you change it to read "Copy or move the contents of $INSTDIR to a folder of your choice".

Just discovered putting the .ini file into the "instdir" folder stops writing to user/appdata

Suggest updating this, firstly when dl file extracted there is no temp, or uniblue folders, made .ini file and copied text to it. placed it into app. It then still placed folders in user/appdata/imgburn. God knows whats in the registry. no way this is stealth, at least not following the instructions.
