BurnAware Professional is the most complete set of disc-burning tools offered by Burnaware. It includes all the tools and functionality that come with both the free and the premium editions of BurnAware, plus some extra features. However, the program keeps its classical simplicity and ease of use, so that it can still be used by both novice and expert users.

The program offers you shortcuts to all the included tools, grouped in five categories - Data, Multimedia, Disc Images, Utilities and Extras. It allows you to burn practically all kinds of known discs, including data discs, standard audio CDs, MP3 discs, video DVDs and BluRay discs, and more. You also have four tools that allow you to create ISO image files, as well as burn them back onto blank discs. Advanced users can also benefit from some tools that were especially designed for them. For example, they can create "Custom Discs" by selecting the disc's file system (ISO9660, UDF or a combination of both), they can create bootable discs, or they can use the "Multiburn" tool to burn an ISO image file into multiple blank discs simultaneously (using multiple disc burners).

The main difference between the Professional and the Free editions of BurnAware are the tools under the "Extra" category. They include direct disc-to-disc copy, a "Data Recovery" tool for corrupted discs or sessions, an "Audio Grabber" to extract the tracks from your audio CDs, and the already mentioned "Multiburn" tool. If you hover your mouse over a shortcut, the program explains you briefly its function, through a short message.

In short, BurnAware Professional is a very complete set of disc-burning tools that will surely fit all your needs. As I mentioned before, the program offers you access to all its tools in a simple and clear way, without intricate menus or hidden options.
