Ashampoo Burning Studio 18 is a comprehensive software package that handles all of your burning, copying and file back up needs. It is ideal for storing media files, such as pictures and videos, in a place other than your main hard drive in order to both free up space and to create copies. The full version, Ashampoo Burning Studio Pro, is great for anyone who also wants to back up their mobile devices, such as smartphones and laptops, too.

Taking Care of Your Burning Needs

Taking data from one place, or a series of file locations, and sending them to another form of storage media, such as a writeable CD or DVD, can be a hassle. Sometimes files and folders get mixed up into different orders. Likewise, the way in which data is stored might cause problems when it comes to retrieving it, for example if your music files are stored according to their size or file type, rather than by artists or genre. Ashampoo Burning Studio 18 makes life simple for anyone who is burning their data to another format by ordering things sensibly in default mode as well as offering users a great deal of flexibility with the way in which things are burned. For example, if you want to burn a playlist to a USB memory stick to play in your car, then Ashampoo Burning Studio Pro will handle all of the issues that commonly surround things like unsupported formats and lost playing orders. It will seamlessly integrate imported data from both iTunes and WMP, leaving you to just sit back and enjoy the music.

Updates Put Ease of Use At the Centre

The latest version of the software, Ashampoo Burning Studio 18, has a clever enhancement in that it now supports the popular video formats of MPEG-4, H.264 and AAC. There are a number of transitions offered in the software, as well, which allow different video formats to flow one into the next, if wanted, making it ideal for creating slide shows or videos backed with music. However, most people are likely to buy Ashampoo Burning Studio Pro in order to burn personal data to CDs, DVDs or Blu-rays and this remains the core feature of the software. All of these functions remain easy to do and it is even possible to create a DVD with animated menus and sub-menus with just a few clicks of the mouse. The latest version of the package promises newly improved graphical interfaces, better structured menus and self-explanatory icons which, when added together, make for a more intuitive workflow than its earlier generations. The package is available to trial for 30 days without fee, after which there is a charge to download the full version of Ashampoo Burning Studio Pro after that.

Burn, Baby Burn?

Although other comprehensive data burning suites exist, Ashampoo offers plenty of functionality especially if you have a number of different file types that have built up over the years, perhaps because you have used both Windows and Apple products. It is also good at securing items, offering a password protection option for all backed up data stored to discs.

Powerful application to burn, copy and backup your files

The new Ashampoo Burning Studio 18 is an even more versatile burning application that burns files, music and movies to any disc type. Beginners achieve even faster results thanks to a completely redesign interface with improved visuals and better usability. The program's extensive multimedia capabilities not only include the creation of audio discs with individual covers but also provide everything users need to realize complex movie projects with animated menus, custom themes and smooth cuts. The redesigned slideshow module comes with a dedicated wizard that guides users through the basic setup and ensures good results every time. For the first time, Burning Studio now also comes with a module that specifically targets the creation of music discs and USB flash drives for use with car radios. Aside from individual sort orders and easy playlist imports (e.g. from iTunes or Windows Media Player), various device presets ensure maximum compatibility with common car radios. Backup features include support for high security media, disc spanning and strong password protection.


Feature highlights:
- Extensive sound module for your car radio
- New user interface and program handling
- Wizard to create slideshows with over 140 transition effects
- Faster video encoding through Intel Media with many onboard cards
- Cut, produce and burn movies with ease
- Rip, convert and burn audio discs
- Create password-protected backups across multiple volumes
- Various menu presets, themes and designs for multimedia use
- Backup data from mobile devices (cellphone, laptop etc.)

  • "NOT FREE"

    This is not free and it shouldn't be listed so as to confuse people. You install and it asks for an activation key. More.
