ImgBurn is mainly a disk burning computer application that was developed by Lightning UK as a freeware. It enables users to write files, folders and images on optical disc, create image from disc and files and verify disc. It is very helpful in storing large volume of data on CDs. Though it was originally intended for Microsoft Windows operating system; however, now it also offers support for Wine on Linux OS. During its installation, its setup wizard asks for downloading of a few free tools. Therefore the users must be careful and should select only those tools that they actually need.
ImgBurn enables users to write Image files on disc as well as create images from supported discs. All they need to do is to select a source where the intended image file is present and select destination where the file should be transferred to. The software will extract basic information and will display label, Imp ID, file system, capacity and free space if available. If you wish to modify volume label, then go to ISO option in Tools menu.
