Ashampoo Burning Studio is an optical disc authoring program for Microsoft Windows, developed by Ashampoo. Its main advantages are that it is simple, lightweight, and very easy to use. However, these are also its weaknesses: it does not contain many extras that power users might find useful. It is capable of creating compilations of CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs and disc images. It also allows the creation of DVD movies from video files.
