StarBurn is a free DVD authoring and CD burning program which provides the kind of sophisticated feature set that you usually have to pay for. It supports Blu-Ray for the three of you out there using that format, and comes with a useful set of wizards to help the novice do things right. Most impressively for a free program, they offer an active support forum, which is always a good sign of a developer’s commitment.
With StarBurn you can perform grabbing, copying and burning operations as well as advanced DVD authoring and mastering. These advanced features enable you to create DVD-Video content from custom video files, or compilations from other DVDs. Additionally with the DVD Splitting Wizard you can split DVD-Video discs into smaller parts and burn them to DVD writable discs or share them with the StarPort DVD-ROM emulator and watch DVD video directly on your PC. This enables you to create copies of 8.5 GB dual layer DVDs with just a few mouse clicks.
