Good & simple app to burn CDs in Windows and create ISOs from disks
article #357, updated 313 days ago

AnyBurn seems to be possibly the current best light & powerful CD/DVD toolbox item:

www.anyburn.com/download.php

It’s available in 64-bit and 32-bit versions. ImgBurn was go-to for a long time, but it hasn’t had updates since 2013. Quite a few others are gone too. But the old reliable CDBurnerXP is still being kept up to Windows 10 as well:

article #1013, updated 427 days ago

Many old friends, e.g. Hiren’s and UBCD4Win, are no longer in development, and do not boot on quite a lot of newer hardware; for a while there was no clear replacement. The only one known to this writer that works well on current made-for-10 hardware, is Medicat:
