CDBurnerXP now supports Blu-ray and HD DVD

CDBurnerXP now supports Blu-ray and HD DVD

CDBurnerXP is back! 3 years after the last release, CDBurnerXP has returned, completely rewritten in This new release fixes many, many issues with the old version, including DVD-video burning issues and a whole lot more. To add to all of this, the program now supports burning to Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD recordable formats!

The initial release for this new version (4.0), occurred on September 22nd. I scooped up the first release as soon as it became available and I can confirm that burning ISO images of DVD-Video discs now functions correctly.

With any new major release such as this, there are bound to be some bugs and issues. Knowing this, the CDBurnerXP development team has included error reporting within the application, to allow users to notify them of issues. And this error reporting has certainly been utilized. Just one week after the initial release, the CDBurnerXP team has released an update (, which has resolved many of the bugs reported by the user community.

I have always enjoyed the CDBurnerXP software, but it was a shame that many of the features did not function correctly. This new version fixes all those annoying problems and adds a whole lot more. Any individuals or businesses can download and use CDBurnerXP completely free of charge. Get it at and start burning away those recordable discs till your hearts’ content.

I have also added CDBurnerXP to my posts about free HD DVD copy software and free Blu-ray copy software. If you are looking for some free software that can handle the next generation optical formats, have a look at these previous posts.

    […] Copy Blu-ray freeware The day after I posted my article about DVD Fab HD Decrypter supporting HD DVD copy functions for free, Fengtao software announced that a newer version now provides Blu-ray copy functionality. So what is the price for running this easy to use, Blu-ray copy software? Nothing! Now you can copy Blu-ray Disc titles using an easy to use freeware software. You can download the freeware DVD Fab HD Decrypter with Blu-ray and HD DVD copy support from here. Other Copy Blu-ray software options BackupBluray, an open source, command line utility has been available for awhile now, but it is a fairly complicated process to copy Blu-ray discs with. We have even published a guide here on WesleyTech that explains how to use BackupBluray. You can read the BackupBluray guide here if you are interested. If you thought BackupBluray was too complicated, you could also test out a free trial of AnyDVD HD, an easy to use commercial product that allows users to easily copy HD DVD and Blu-ray discs.

    […] Copy HD DVD freeware If you have been following the HD DVD and Blu-ray copy protection scene, then you probably already know about BackupHDDVD and AnyDVD HD. Both tools will allow you to back up HD DVD’s to your computer hard drive. BackupHDDVD is open source and freeware, while AnyDVD HD is commercial, closed source software that requires a purchased license for unlimited legal usage. But you can download a free trial here. Copy HD DVD free vs pay So why would anyone use commercial software over the free software? It is all about features and usability. BackupHDDVD is fairly complicated to use due to the command line interface and manual encryption key input required from the end user. AnyDVD HD is extremely easy to use and can allow you to easily backup your HD DVD movies with little to no effort, but it does cost money. HD DVD Decrypter? There is a new HD DVD rip competitor in town and the name is DVD Fab HD Decrypter.

DVD Fab Decrypter (non HD version) has been around for awhile and is well known as one of the best freeware utilities that you can obtain for decrypting and ripping newer DVD’s that have complicated protections such as ARccOS, RipGuard and others. DVD Fab Decrypter mimics the name of one of the most popular freeware DVD ripping utilities of all time, “DVD Decrypter”. This was a smart marketing move on Fengtao Softwares’ part. On March 16th, Fengtao Software released DVD Fab HD Decrypter Beta, providing a freeware utility that anyone can use to easily backup HD DVD’s. Download this free copy HD DVD utility here. Fengtao also claims that Blu-ray support will be coming soon. Very interesting! Copy HD DVD UPDATE: DVD Fab HD Decrypter now supports both HD DVD and Blu-ray copying.

    HD DVD burning support is a fake for this product. It does not even recognize the HD DVD recordable media inserted into the drive.

    Thanks for sharing your experience NISMO. I would contact the development team on thier website to let them know what HD DVD burner model you have and what HD DVD-R media you are using. It could be a bug in the software.
