Cdrtfe is an open source application for burning data discs, audio CDs, XCDs, (S)VCDs and DVDs with Windows. The tool supports the creation and writing of ISO images and bootable discs, and also allows you to write disc images and audio CDs simultaneously to multiple writers.

The program can be used to create audio CDs from various formats, including Wave and MP3, while also ripping tracks from CDs. It also lets you burn video DVDs containing VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders, as well as bootable discs and ISO files. Additionally, it comes with features to help you delete rewritable discs and display detailed information about the drives connected to your PC and inserted discs.

How to use the tool

It is quite easy to use cdrtfe since it features an integrated file explorer to let you browse the contents of your hard drive and add files to projects using drag-and-drop actions. Since the tool serves as a frontend for cdrtools, it focuses more on functionality rather than appearance.

If this is your first time using the program, the application provides everything to you with quick accessibility. You can also automatically detect a disc’s writing speed, show a space meter, and abort a burn in any situation.

The data disc, audio CD, XCD, (S) VideoCD and video DVD categories all come with quick access to certain options. There are dedicated windows as well for advanced settings. With that in mind, the tool feels more versatile and professional to use. You can also save your projects and application configurations for later use.

The tool lets you send items and folders using shell extensions directly to the application using the context menu. Since it is an open source application, you can customize cdrtfe to fulfill any requirements for burning data to CD and DVD discs.

All in all, cdrtfe is a solid aplication if you’re looking for everything above — and more.
