I use this for most of my burning. It's very easy to use, and it does a good job. There are some things it can't do, but I can't remember them at the moment - maybe burn bootable DVDs, or read bin/cue files?

Anyway, one thing I have noticed is that, if I burn the same project over and over again, it'll start to behave a little strangely (for example, it'll burn a disc but not show a progress bar; instead, it just says "Medium: Busy" for the duration of the burn). Eventually it crashes. This is somewhere in the range of 15-18 consecutive burns. Quitting and relaunching returns it to normal behavior. (So does letting it crash.)

Luckily I burn such a high volume of discs (30+) very infrequently, and quitting/relaunching such a lightweight program only takes a second. Still, it would be nice if something could be done about that.

How Do I make a MP3 CD? On "Burn" it has MP3 CD settings, so I can fit a fair bit of music on one CD. I looked all over the developer site and could not find anything on this.

This application is Simply outstanding!!! The developer has clearly put his time into making sure this runs without flaws, and looks great at the same time.

Plus, I just love the amount of options it offers! I'm ripping a cd to an image file right now! It's a tad slow, but really, that might not be true considering I don't have much experience with ripping cd's to image files.

But my sincere thanks to the developer of this wonderful app. Your hard work and effort was not in vain, and I give you even more thanks for offering this for free right now! And if you do some kind of donation for the app, well I'll be first in line to donate, thanks again!

Haha, after missing it the first time, I just now saw that there is in fact, a "Donate" option in the SimplyBurns menu. Well, I stand by my word!

Downloaded no problem but when I try to make a 1:1 copy it says Reading Source Medium: Unlocking drive. Then returns an error of Burning with the cdrdao subsystem has failed.
Technical error information:
{
"DiscOperation_ErrorKey" = "HdiUtilError_CreateFailed";
"DiscOperation_RealTaskDurationKey" = 4.031000137329102;
"DiscOperation_ReturnCodeKey" = 1;
}

And if I try ripping first, it says Reading source medium. Unlocking drive and does nothing.

Suggestions?

Brilliant little piece of Freeware. It's simple to use and rock solid. For most tasks it's better than many commercial programs.

Got an DVD image in .img format, I first tried to burn it onto a blank DVD with the built-in Mac OS application but without success. It keeps saying my blank DVD isn't large enough for the image to burn. Then I looked around here to find a useful (and free) app and SimplyBurns does what I want with ease. It's weird that in Mac OS, it shows the image as 4.7GB but SimplyBurns shows it as 4.3GB. Anyways, I highly recommend this software though I haven't tried any others.

The difference consists in the different ways of measuring disk capacity

I have a CDimage.ape, CDImage.ape.cue and a CDImage.cue file ...
can this program burn a CD from these (Windows produced) files?
I've tried using the Image portion of the SW but the resulting burned disc is 3,460 GB !!! No drive let alone optical media for that.
The .ape is 326MB.
Thanks

I have used the copy 1:1 feature once with success. I wanted to burn several DVDs but I am not sure how to do this. I see a copy again button that is greyed out and do not seem to be able to access a previously created project.
I would like to be able to keep burning new disks whenever needed from the first image, is it possible to save it as a project or find it on my drive?
