@ tandavad
for CD-Text support.. your Drive has to have the capability. I use Exact Audio Copy which does support CD-Text.. not sure about Burrrn.

Does burning a mixed mode audio CD with Burrrn require having a Disc drive that can write CD-Text. My burner is an Optiarc DVD+RW AD 7580S. According to the Nero Info Tool, it can read CD-Text, but it is not clear if it can also write CD-Text. Also, can Burrrn create an audio CD with album cover image (jpg) as well as text (track and album information).

Burrrn_Portable < This seems like a bit of overkill, Burrrn is and always has been 100% portable and stealth (as far as I'm concerned).

The entry (Cygnus Solutions) left in the registry is created by the Cygwin POSIX Emulation Layer (cygwin1.dll) called from cdrdao.exe (CD-R Disk-At-Once) and is left empty.

I have other programs that also use this emulation layer and leave that exact registry key (empty).

So, is Burrrn stealth? Well if you consider stealth to not leaving traces of yourself, then yes.

Any files other than WAV, e.g. APE, FLAC, MP3 get decompressed to WAV in the 'temp' directory, so making the 'temp' directory relative to Burrrn's folder would cause excessive writes to your flash/portable drive (Average CD ~ 600 - 700 MB).

CDBurnerXP DOES come in a portable version, sort of, as it still requires .NET Framework. When I use my .NET drive for nLite, I use this portable, which works fine for me.

Maybe a short snippet outlining the reason for each update would resolve this type of misunderstanding?

Thanks Magibon but it's unlikely people will download your file without some explanations + MD5.

Really nice program, fast and small design, only things that sucks is the missing Unicode support )=

Burrrn seems to have more power than expected! On Vista Home SP1, I downloaded it as restricted user and ran it. Under Options / General Options, location of temporary folder, I get access to all (!) folders, including protected Admin and System folders. Without any prompt for passwords. I can launch explorer and do with admin privileges what I want. Thank you!

Softpedia seems to have an already portable-ized version (self-extracting EXE) at

Just FYI, the Russian download there worked better for me than the U.S. one...
