I'm having hard time finding one high quality free CD/DVD burner for Windows. And I don't want to buy Nero.
Linux has pretty good options like K3B, Brasero, etc.

So, does windows provide API for burning CDs? How does it work?

If anyone is interested we can create a community project for Light CD Burner written in FASM.

Tell me what you think.

Take a look at the Image Mastering API.

I think only for data CDs. Would be nice a light tool for audio CDs and ISOs too.

It's part of the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools - works fine on WinXP, too.

I can't imagine how one could consider CDBurnerXP to be 'lightweight', the framework alone is around 150Mb. I use InfraRecorder which is an open source front-end to the open source cdrtools. Never had a coaster from this, and it is ~4Mb.

Intesting. I didn't know these tools were available for Windows. I know it exists in Linux.
It would be easier to write a tool in FASM to be front-end for this instead of handling the Windows API for CD burning.

what is needed to burn a CD:

1/ know the file systems used for the CD burning.
2/ know the commands to write on CDR
3/ know how to read a file or at least how to access it in ram for the transfert.
4/ an interface to control the CD image burning.


i think that's all...

burncdcc for Windows (68k)

This utility is used to burn an ISO file to a CD/DVD/BD disc. Many new systems come with a limited CD/DVD software package that lacks the ability to burn ISO files.


Or for a possibly better tool, try this (< 2MB): ImgBurn (download)

I hardly use anything but ImgBurn... works like a charm for my purposes, and it's small and bloat-free.
