A non-deviated CD/DVD burning app
Nero has always been the favourite choice in CD/DVD burning software, and is used by almost everyone today. VSO Software’s CopyToDVD 4 just might be able to change that. CopyToDVD 4 is elegant and straightforward in its approach. The Welcome window doesn’t look all that great, but it does its job of guiding you through.
The most popular application is the CopyToDVD Manager, which is the Nero Burning ROM equivalent. The interface is simple, with two panes providing some help, and there’s the main project window and the file browser window. The Wizard panes can be disabled. To make things more fun, a large collection of themes is provided, each of them tasteful and unique.
Burning audio CDs is no problem—the software handles almost all audio formats. Burning video DVDs or CDs is a different story, however. Conversion to DVD means you might need to get VSO’s other software—ConvertXtoDVD. This isn’t free. Non-advanced users will have to go through the trouble of converting videos to suitable formats using third-party applications before burning them to CDs or DVDs.
You can choose to schedule burning tasks, which can be useful in backing up data, say every day or every week.
The software is light and bloat-free—20 MB memory consumption most of the time. There is no help file, only a link to the manual when you look for Help.

The price tag of Rs 1,200 is definitely attractive. This 10 MB software actually makes good sense when the latest Nero 8 is now nearing a gigabyte in size. CopyToDVD 4 does what most of us need, and not much more. It is great for people who keep backing up data very often—along with an occasional audio and video CD.
