Ooops, "PlayList Copy" is the culprit trojan file, but still should be careful with this site. The author should know about this and fix it, or have their softwares be avoided.

There is more good Amok free software:

I have used AmoK DVD Shrinker (also portable), which "shrinks DVDs up to one fifth of the original size without any noticeable quality reduction".
I used it to reduce a DL DVD to a 'normal' DVD.

A+++++, "Kneel before Zod" level power

Burns ALL types of CD, SVCD, DVD's (RL & DVD-RAM). If it can be erased it can erase it.
I'd gues its a small plug-in (and skilled coder) away from Blu-ray burning with how well made it is

Amok CD-DVD Burner & their 2 "best" other app: DVD Shrinker & MP3_ReEncoder.
Tiny, the features ppl really use/need.

This is to "Big name" Burning software what VirturalDub is to KdenLive OR Waveshop is to Ocenaudio.
Its not the "best available" but its the best at "BYTE FOR BYTE" WEIGHT

- Amok Burner is 970Kb
- Amok DVD Shrinker is 700kb
- Amok MP3 ReEncode is 1.6mb (THATS WITH x86 Lame "v3995o 32bit" added & it weighs in at 339kb).

3.2mb total! Imgburn is bigger than that
Thats 3.2mb for EVERYTHING, once UPX'ed, and like I said that INCLUDES lame for windows.

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

webfork on 2019-04-26 21:13

@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.

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.

Download link + webpage are no longer current (they have disappeared!).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