What is the best free software available for burning DVD’s?  I want to also be able to burn some of my movies and things to one DVD to watch on the TV.  I do not want to pay any fee for software though.  Please help!

There are many free software options out there for burning dvd’s that do not have you pay like other big commercial software such as Roxio or Nero.  While we do not condone illegal copying of software or movies, these options will help you create copies of your old dvd’s, create new ones and merge all your movies (in all file formats) to one large disk to watch on the big screen!

1.  Final Burner Free– FinalBurner is a great piece of freeware which can create data, audio, and video disks and burn them onto any type of media, such as CD R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and DVD DL. It only has a few settings to tweak and will use its built in artificial intelligence to conform to your burning needs!

2.  StarBurn CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD Recording and Mastering Application– This program is perfect for dual layer and blu-ray burning.  If you do not have a dvd dual layer writable disk, use this program to split up the DVD into smaller sections.  StarBurn supports all types of optical storage media (including CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, BD-R/RE, HD-DVD-R/RW and DVD-RAM) as well as a wide variety of burning hardware.

3. ImgBurn – Last but certainly not least, this piece of software is great for building tools and resources.  With the ability to handle things such as booktype and bitsetting, it is able to burn double layer disks with layer breaks and can erase and format other writable media.  Create your own ISOs, with support for the various ISO levels, Joliet support, UDF, bootable CDs and DVDs, etc, from files and folders on your disk. ImgBurn is another all in one CD/DVD mastering software!

You should be able to use one of these programs for your DVD needs!  Enjoy!
