NTI Dragon Burn 4.5
Full Featured Creativity Suite for Music, Photos, Movies, Sharing & Backup!

Dragon Burn enables Macintosh computer users to quickly and easily begin producing audio, data, mixed-mode CDs, DVDs, and BDs (Blu-ray Discs). Dragon Burn's Multi-Burning engine allows users to simultaneously write multiple CDs, DVDs, and BDs from single or multiple sorces. It also fully supports the newest internal and external drives.

Using Dragon Burn, Macintosh users can easily produce their own audio and data CDs, DVDs, and BDs; mixed-mode and CD extra discs; and VCD and SVCD video discs. Users can mix and match AIFF, CDDA, MP3 or Wave files to produce custom audio CDs. For CD, DVD, and BD data mastering applications, Dragon Burn fully supports ISO 9660 MS-DOS and Joliet, HFS (Mac OS) and HFS+ (Mac OS Extended) file systems. For Hybrid CDs and DVDs, users can select Mac OS and ISO 9660 file system combinations including data from previous ISO 9660 sessions.

For complete data protection and recovery, users can burn layouts to a disc or save them as complete disc image files. Using similar creation techniques, users can quickly and easily produce a backup copy of any CD or non-copy protected DVD. To ensure that users always produce quality discs, Dragon Burn supports BurnProof and other buffer-underrun protection technologies. For maximum throughput performance, the mastering software also supports USB 2.0 and FireWire CD/DVD/BD burners.
