I really like the idea of burning stuff to
CD. It should last a long time, it's stable, it's small and it's
reasonably fast. Why don't I do it more? Because hauling out the CD
burning software is a pain in the neck. Okay, maybe I'm just lazy, but
it seems like a lot of work to stop what I'm doing, fire up the CD
burning program, burn it and then get back to what I was doing.
Wouldn't it be cool if you could right
click a file, select burn and bang, start the process and go back to
your work? Ah, now that would be slick, just as easy as a copy to a
floppy and that appeals to my well developed sense of laziness.
I was totally blown away when I found
BurnQuick, it does just that; installed a new entry on the right click
menu that allows me to burn from there or add a file to a queue of files
to burn later on. If you want to burn a file immediately but also want
to add files later on not a problem, just instruct QuickBurn not to
close the CD. The interface couldn't be easier.
The progress of the burn session is just as
BurnQuick can also create several types of
CD Audio discs from WAV and MP3 files.
Want to scour your drive and create a
list of files to burn? Just add them to the queue and then view the
queue and delete or reorder files. Sweet.
I can't rave enough about the
functionality, simplicity and elegance of this program.
If you've ever been like me and been too
cranky to fire up the CD burner or just want to make it as easy as
possible you'll want to check this guy out, this may be my favorite of
the year. -- Don Watkins
