Burn overview

Burn... There are a lot of ways to approach burning discs. Burn keeps it simple, but still offers a lot of advanced options.

Create data discs with advanced data settings like, file permissions, the disc icon, file dates and more on the fly. Create video and audio discs without worrying about conversion. Create your personalized DVD-Video discs using themes. Recreate discs and disc images you all ready have.

Burn doesn't reinvent the wheel, it uses many powerful open source Unix utilities and is also open source.

Hey all, Does anyone know what UDF version burn uses for DVDs? I need at least version 2.5 for AVCHD discs to play in a Blu-ray player. I also have a copy of toast 20 pro, so I could do the disc in that, if burn doesn't have the right specs, or I could do a different disc format, if that will also work. Thanks

The current version is 3.1.6. Contrary to what the project's homepage seems to imply (it is horribly outdated), Burn is still under active development, and is even a Universal binary for Intel and Apple Silicon. Their development page is the better location for checking on the current status of the project. https://sourceforge.net/projects/burn-osx/

This program burns songs out of sequence from an MP3 source. I have manually re-sequnced the songs in the correct order and it continues to burn them incorrectly with the wrong song titles. It is useless.

Free app that does everything with CDs and DVDs. They keep updating it and now is compatible with 10.15 Catalina (version 2.7.7). This utility always has a place in my Applications folder.

Works very well with one major exception. When burning an Audio CD, it burns the files in ascii sequence not in the order in the window if you drag the files to reorder them. Means you have to be careful of the names and not reorder them in the burn window. Bug report has been submitted.

Just a quick review to say Burn came through for me when Toast 15 did not. I just wanted to do a quick copy of a .iso to a dual layer disc, and Toast 15 choked on it. I had left it running all night long, and it simply hung at about 30%. I've got Burn 2.5.1, so why not try it? Less than 30 minutes later the job is done. No muss, no fuss. Why do I keep spending money on Roxio products?! (I tell myself I can quit anytime, and then I find myself holding another e-receipt and another half-toasted disc. Sad, very sad.) 2013 MacBook Air, external generic superdrive, Mac 10.12.6, Sierra,

I'm using Burn and it works, BUT everytime my videos end up rotated sideways after burning to disk. I really don't like having to lean over 90 degrees to watch my dvd, so why is this happening and what can I do about it? I'm using a Mac, all up to date, the files were Quicktime .mov files which Burn converted to MP4. They were filmed in the right orientation, it's only after burning to disk that they have rotated. Help!

I downloaded this just fine last night. Toast kept giving me verification errors, and I really needed to get some data DVDs burned. So I gave Burn a try. It worked fast, and it worked properly. Someone mentioned that it hadn't been updated since 2011, but I'm not sure what it would need.

By far, the best DVD burning software currently available. Renders noticeably-higher quality movie and picture DVDs than any other bloatware / paid-for apps.
