I was already expecting that Ashampoo Burning Studio will be in some freebie promo on this Christmas occasion. It is in fact one of its kind. Though Nero is famous because of its burning studio but it is blotted and has many other irrelevant software integrated in its burning suite. If you friends like freeware, CDBurnerXP is best but if you like some other burning software, Ashampoo Burning Studio is best. I am using both and I do not remember if ever have had any problem. I will not waste your time because installation process is lengthy and it is in German language. But do not worry, I have created full pictorial of installation and change of language in English as well as other supported language.
