Before USB flash drives and cloud storage gained popularity, CDs and DVDs prevailed as the most trusted means of sharing data among computers. Optical drives were a necessity for all computers to enable users to transfer information conveniently. As other digital methods of sharing information evolved, the use of optical media decreased giving rise to laptops with no optical disk drives.

You see a lot of computers with DVD multi-drives these days as the use of optical media may not disappear entirely regardless of industry trends. Files saved on discs are read-only making CDs ideal for storing emergency boot tools. InfraRecorder is a disc burning solution that handles optical media and disk image creation.

How Does InfraRecorder Work?

InfraRecorder is a handy tool that has a simple interface making it easy to use by everyone including those that are less tech-savvy. The program is lightweight, easy to install and does not require a lot of setting up, just little configuration adjustments to make sure that the resulting file is of the desired quality. It gives you a lot of flexibility in the creation and management of data as there are configurations that favor speed while others promote quality.

With this tool, you are able to create audio, video and data CDs as well as DVDs. You are also able to create a virtual disk image in various formats that are readable on other devices including smartphones. It supports the “drag and drop” feature that improves the ease at which the file writing queue is created. 

You also get to use the buffer underrun protection to prevent errors that may ruin the disc. It is free to download and supports dual-layer discs. The portable version is convenient for most people as it does not require installation and can be copied into other computers for quick use.

Although InfraRecorder does not have a lot of features, it has powerful disc burning capabilities that make it an important program to have on your computer.

InfraRecorder Key Features Include:

  • Multi-language support for improved user experience;
  • Creation of disc images like ISO;
  • Supports buffer underrun protection;
  • Burn CDs and DVDs of various types;
  • Dual layer disc support;
  • Manipulate session data on multi-session discs.


This software is lightweight and as such, can accommodate almost all computer types. Whether you are using a system with a 64-bit or 32-bit architecture, InfraRecorder runs smoothly while enabling you to create CD or DVD copies of your multimedia collections. Its unique interface with very little configurations ensures a user-friendly experience.
