CommandBurner: Free CD/DVD Burner with Command Line Interface
« on: December 08, 2007, 01:36:35 AM »
The subject says it all: CommandBurner is a freeware CD/DVD burner that has a nice GUI but also accepts command lines, making it suitable for .bat file use.

I've used it for years, as part of my nightly backup strategy.  I always keep a RW DVD in my drive, and via a .bat file I wrote, CommandBurner wakes up in the middle of the night and overwrites it with a backup archive of my most critical sourcecode and documents.  Once a week I toss the DVD into a fireproof safe, in case the worst happens. 

Call it Murphy's Law insurance: because I do this, I'll never need the disc.

Small, light, rock-solid, useful, and free... doesn't get much better than this.

if you want to quickly burn an ISO, then try BurnCDCC, only 70k zipped with command-line support..

Nothing beats ImgBurn for burning ISOs; free, portable and endless features.

I love ImgBurn (it's handy right-click context menu is a blessing) but I needed a command-line interface, which sadly, it lacks.

 :huh: ImgBurn doesn't have a command-line interface?! Um, maybe you should look in the readme file that comes with ImgBurn, because ImgBurn has had command-line support right from the start...

Serously though, ImgBurn has a very powerful command line syntax, allowing you to write iso files, erase discs, and burn a collection of files and folders to disc.
