Guys!

We would really appreciate to learn your opinions and suggestions for new features in Astroburn!

I mean what is most required to be added in new versions, and overall what in your opinion would have been most valuable to add?

Disc copy - copy on the fly, insert one disk which you want to copy in one drive and a blank media into your recorder.

Exactly this feature I wish myself also in the new version of Astroburn.

Not a new feature, but important IMO:
Lower memory usage on image burning

New feature:
If I burn for example a data disc and I don't choose to finalize it (either because I forgot, or perhaps I change my mind later), it would be great to have the opportunity to finalize it later on, preserving the session(s) already burnt to the disc. This doesn't seem to be possible now. Unless I have another application able to do this, I would now have to burn the data to a brand new disc and select finalize when burning that one (please correct me if I'm wrong)

Change request:
Change default setting for "Finalize" to yes (checked checkbox)? Today the default is no (unchecked checkbox). Of course I can't be absolutely sure whether everyone would agree, but I believe it is the most common scenario for most users to finalize/close the discs.

By the way, thank you so much for Astroburn. There weren't exactly too many decent free or cheap burning applications available before Astroburn came along.

Add extra side kick as the "LightScribe" option a freeware technology from HP.

If your CD/DVD hardware have the ability to Print own Labels direct on your CD/DVD.. then you can choose the extra in Astroburn instant of using other vendor(s) release to provide such direct print.

I use the inkless freeware labeling for a quiet long time and is support by Windows XP & Vista as well.

It's just my small sugestion to improve the already well done ASTROBURN free software..

Thanks for the Astroburn! :)

Could you add some ASTROBURN screenshots?.. Can't seem to find what the software (interface) looks like anywhere.

Downloaded & installed and Tested all options and now come with a few new sugestion:

1. Write Speed: listed as 1.2.3.4.8.10.12.16.24.32.40.48
Need setup as Default >> Auto << (is missed)

Main Screen layouts need:
On the Left site
EXPLORER (with current all System directory + Devices)
On the right site from Buttom to up devide 2 screens:

1. Upper Screen (any hidlighted directory from Explorer
shows here full openning and listing.

2. Buttom Screen (design to work as Queue Section)
need to drop or copy from the Upper Screen.

Note:
Explorer reside in the upper part of the screen.

Below in the lower part of the screen all of the
Astroburn Options have build-in and provide support.

=========================================

At the current Status Astroburn doesn't provide and support
full options to create independent Image from several grup of data from other source Data like Hard Drive include some part from even CD/DVD.

Astroburn Support creation of CD/DVD disc Image and save in several formats like ISO.. and burn or use to burn other software like say the Alcohol.

I'm hardly trying to create DVD from several Data locate on Hard Drive as well as on other two DVD.. and unsuccessfully gave-up!

The main my sugestion is to make the Astoburn build-in with
the most same Options as are build-in the (buggie) Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5 which consist of all I mention above and more..

The option to delete original files on hard disk if verification is OK would be nice. It should ask the user, of course, and not just delete it then.

Would be nice if we could select which mode the disc get burned with.

It would be nice to get the translations strings before the release so you could get an updated language file before release.

1. Ability to verify data when burning to disc from an image file.
2. Allow 'never show this again' when prompted to save a project.
3. Allow custom explorer view i.e right|left or top|bottom.

Yes definitely! Unfortunately, at the moment I have a hard time using Astroburn on Vista SP1 for burning DVDs (for example I burned a trial DVD of Windows 2008). If I'm doing anything else Windows pretty much comes to a crawl. Granted my laptop isn't the fastest, but it's still a half way decent machine. I will hopefully be getting a new one here pretty soon though. :)

The option to add Astroburn to the Windows (XP / Vista) blank media autorun menu would be nice too.

Simple user-interface as "SESSION" Mode make it the ideal partner for all users that need a burn solution.

When you don't finalize the disc, you are burning a session.

Hi, new user here! Just bought a license myself.

I second the above. The only thing I miss is an option to do not eject the disk after the burn is complete. Astroburn Pro is amazing!

I'd like to be able to burn audio cd's and have the option to select a 0 second gap between songs. Just like I can do in Nero Burning Rom.

Try to use Astroburn Pro. Select 'Audio CD' file system, add files to project and set desired pauses between tracks (left click on Pause in appropriate row to change value).

It is possible already, you just need to check the option "disc at once" before burning the disc.

Oh! I wasn't aware of this! I can't believe how I could have missed it! Thank you very much :)

Feature suggestion: ability to burn multisession discs. Is this a planned feature addition or is it not possible in Astroburn Pro when using the copy disc option?

Astroburn Pro and Astroburn Lite are able to burn multisession discs.

Before burning a disc, detect if the files really exist.
For example, if after adding the files to the project you go and delete or rename them, when you click to burn the disc Astroburn Pro starts the process, despite the files cannot be found.

Well, checking for the existance is not much sense. The files may be as well gone after the burning was started.
Btw, that's the reason there is usually no function available for file existance check in APIs. The file might be there while you were checking for it but before function returns it might be already deleted. :)

Ability to burn multiple copies. Right now if you want to make 3 copies of the same disc you have to write an image file and burn it 3 times. Copy and burning options could use a "Copies" field that automatically burns more disc using the same source (eg a temporary image in case of of a disk copy operation)
