Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a fully streamlined DVD and Blue Ray burning suite. Its user friendly interface allows the creation of data and music discs, quick backup copies, and virtual disc images.
You can even erase and format old unwanted DVDs with only a few commands. As an added addition Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 includes a tab to create DVD case labels from image files and quickly order new discs from Amazon.
Selecting files for data and music creation was simple and straight forward. Burning times are fast with no errors or hiccups. Files can be further protected and backed up with high compression and encryption.
For music Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 supports standard audio CDs, as well as both MP3 and WMA compatible DVD/Blu-ray players. Movies can be burned to DVD from VOB, BUP, or IFO. There is also an option to burn Blu-rays, though we have not tested that feature at this time.
Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013’s virtual disc image selection is rather limited. The software can only read and burn ISO, CUE/BIN, and ASHDISC file formats. If you happen to be using Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 in conjunction with other disc programs, such as Nero or Daemon Tools, you may need to convert disc formats.
Be careful of the erase disc option. Formatting a DVD is almost too fast and simple; there is even a check box to erase much quicker. It would have been better if there were one or two more confirmations to prevent accidental deletions.
Overall Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a great piece of burning and ripping software for anyone using physical discs.
