When it comes to burning a DVD disc, I believe a lot of people would most likely come up with a name of a program: ImgBurn. Indeed, ImgBurn is one of the best DVD burning programs that you can get from the Internet. It allows you burn files or folders to DVD disc, burn ISO to disc and create ISO from other files. However, it’s been many years since ImgBurn was released, and things have changed a lot in the DVD burning program market. Is ImgBurn still the best choice to burn a DVD? Is there any good ImgBurn alternative that is as good, or, even better than ImgBurn? Well, today let’s take a look at some of the best ImgBurn alternatives in Windows 10.

Part 1: Alternatives to ImgBurn in Windows 10

Leawo DVD Creator

Leawo DVD Creator is a DVD burning program produced by Leawo Software, a company specialized in DVD and Blu-ray technology. Leawo DVD Creator can burn videos in 180+ formats like AVI, MP4, DAT, WEBM, RMVB, RM, MPG, MPEG, VOB, MOV and so many more to an optical DVD disc or DVD ISO file or folder. The burning program can burn videos in a high speed and retain the original quality at the same time. What’s more, there is a built-in video editor that allows you edit your video before burning it to a disc. You can also create DVD menu using this DVD burning program. As one of the best ImgBurn alternative, Leawo DVD Creator has a clean user interface and is very stable and reliable, and it definitely deserves the first place on this list.

Ashampoo Burning Studio Free

If you know something about DVD burning programs, you may have heard about this program for a couple of times now. Even though Burning Studio Free only supports MP3 and WMA formats, it is still considered a pretty good ImgBurn alternative. This free burning program supports CD, DVD, and Blu-ray drives, giving you flexible storage options. Using its intuitive interface, you can rip and burn audio and data CDs, back up files and folders, burn movies, create ISO/BIN images, and duplicate CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs. Besides Ashampoo Burning Studio Free, Ashampoo also offers a paid version of the software. The most inconvenient part about this program is probably the limit of supported formats. Apparently, MP3 and WMV are not enough for even casual burning tasks.

Sothink Movie DVD Maker

As another ImgBurn alternative, Sothink Free Movie DVD Maker is a free DVD editing and burning program. Sothink Free Movie DVD Maker lets you compose and burn high-quality DVDs from your own movie clips. Like most of the other DVD burning and editing programs, Sothink Free Movie DVD Maker handles a wide range of video formats as well as DVD output types, including HD DVDs and up to 1080p in resolution. The operation of this program is relatively simple. With drag-and-drop, clip editing, zoom mode, and menu options, you can produce high-quality DVDs that are compatible with any DVD player. Sothink Free Movie DVD Maker places a splash screen before segments. You can get a free version of this program, or a premium version that removes the ads.

Free Audio CD Burner

ImgBurn can burn both DVD and CD. However, if you only want a simple program to create audio CDs, you can try Free Audio CD Burner, because when it comes to burning only CD, Free Audio CD Burner can be a good ImgBurn alternative as well. Even though it only supports the writing of CDs, it can decode MP3 and WMA files in real time, thus saving time and hard drive space. Free Audio CD Burner supports an enormous variety of audio formats. It burns CD-R and CD-RW discs and erases information from rewriteable discs. You can set it to write one track at a time and leave the disc unfinalized or use it to burn an entire disc at once and finalize it

Video DVD Maker Free

Video DVD Maker is a relatively easy tool for burning DVD discs from your videos. The program allows you to burn your video project on different types of disc, including CD R/RW, DVD R/RW and DVD R DL. You can use Video DVD Maker Free to capture videos from a TV tuner, web camera, DV camcorder or any other video device. Captured videos can be saved in AVI file without quality loss as well as other compression methods. In addition to the video devices, you can also import video from video files in different formats including AVI, DIVX, XVID, MP4, MPG, WMV, ASF and burn it to DVD disc. However, to do so, you must firstly download and install the appropriate codec. Considering Video DVD Maker Free being a free DVD program, it is recommendable if you are in a budget and okay with some extra works
