Well, I need to create a backup of an audio CD for my own usage. As the topic title says — what are some without PUPs, adware, etc.?

Thanks!

How do you want to back it up? You can image the disc itself as a single file, which is probably the simplest method. You can also extract the audio tracks, which allows you to convert them to .MP3's or something else for later use.

I cannot guarantee that any of the following might not now be doing something odious like bundling, but they weren't when I downloaded them:

 

ImgBurn

CdBurnerXP  (which works well beyond XP)

InfraRecorder

AnyBurn

 

I use CDBurnerXP the most.  All of these have disc duplication functions, which are entirely legal provided you are duplicating a given disc that you already own for personal use.

I quite like these:

 

IsoCreator - Works good for me, not super simple to use, but simpler than most paid for products I have seen.

 

WinCDEmu - Latest version allows .ISO creation from discs (such as your audio CD). Can also mount .ISO's, among other file types.

 

ImgBurn - Also a good program for imaging discs.

Imgburn has open candy adware in it? Aww, shucks.

 

Well, at least there is a workaround.

Thanks, Brian. All of the above seem to have some sort of adware included with them (unless you download the portable version?).

Try WinCDEmu. It can create disc images as well as mount them. Recently it saved me!

Are you absolutely sure? :) What really happened is that Toshiba's disk creator that came pre-installed keeps on crashing, even after a reinstall...

Imgburn only uses open candy to offer programs during install. After install it's not present. At least that is how I remember it. Like I posted, I extracted the exe install file to a folder to bypass it.

 

You may want to look at StarBurn also.

Well Startburn seems to hijack browsers. Thanks, anyway! :)

Thanks for this. I had an older version installed and did not run into that problem.

 

Edit: In fact. I am going to install the latest version of Starburn on an old XP computer and see what happens.

I wish you would explain this process more fully.

This will also work if you have Winrar. I am using 7zip as an example which can also be downloaded as a portable application.

 

Download the Imgburn exe installer.

Run the 7zip portable app

Browse to the Imgburn exe file in the 7zip portable app and select extract. All the Imgburn files will be extracted to a folder. You should be able to run Imgburn by double clicking the extracted exe file.

 

If you have 7zip installed or WinRaR installed then right click the exe file and select extract
