Phantom Burner is a virtual CD-R/DVD+RW/DVD-RAM/BD-RE/CD-ROM/DVD-ROM/BD-ROM emulator. It extends the ability of Phantom CD by adding burner emulation. It not only allows you to mount disc image files as virtual CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs, but also let you create disc image files by burn to the virtual CD-R/DVD+RW/DVD-RAM/BD-RE burner drive, from using any disc burning software.
Many people understand the benefits of using disc image files (like ISO) instead of real optical discs. It is cheaper, faster, and you don't need to worry about scratches or the storage of discs.
However, not all burning software supports disc image file creation. Use Phantom Burner instead. It is a virtual CD/DVD/Blu-ray burner, and allows you to create disc images from any burning software.
Audio CD Support
This is the easiest way to create disc images for audio CD's.
Even if a burning software supports disc image creation, most likely it only supports data discs. Very few burning software support disc images for audio CD's.
Phantom Burner allows you to burn virtual audio CD from any burning software.
Burning Software Support
Phantom Burner emulate a hardware SCSI BD-RE(Blu-ray Rewritable)/DVD+RW/DVD-RAM/CD-R burner. By supporting standard SCSI commands, it is supposed by all burning software, whether it is Nero or Roxio.
Burn Engine Support
If you have used any burning software, you may have realized that they all go through a burning engine. It could be WINASPI, CDRAL, SPTI, or IMAPI.
Dont understand what they mean? It doesnt matter. Those burn engines are middle layer between the application and the hardware.
By emulating the hardware, you dont need to worry the compatibility between Phantom Burner and a burn engine. Eventually, the burn engines send standard SCSI commands to the drive, and those commands are supported by Phantom Burner.
Phantom Burner has been tested with many burner software. We are adding tutorials for all those software support.
It is compatible with Roxio Media Create, Sonic RecordNow, Nero Ultra, to name a few.
Specialized Burning Software
You may have used certain software in other areas which incorporates BD/DVD/CD burning features. Disc burning is not their primary usage, just an add-on feature.
There is hundreds of software in this category. Some examples include Windows Media Player and iTunes. They are music playback software with the ability to create Audio CD from your collection.
Phantom Burner is compatible with this kind of software, whether they create data CDs or audio CDs.
Transfer your DRM protected music
On Sept. 30, Yahoo will shut down the servers that are needed to reauthorize music purchased from its Unlimited Music Store if it is transferred to a new PC. Yahoo has recommended customers to burn the tracks to CDs and then reload them on a PC.
For Yahoo customers with a large music collection, this can be a lengthy and wasteful process. Phantom Burner appears as a regular CD-R/DVD+RW/BD-RE burner in burning software, including Yahoo Music software. A disc image file is created when a virtual audio CD is burned. This image can be mounted again later for playback and reload.
Follow Yahoo's recommendation with your purchase, but instead of burning to physical CD's, use Phantom Burner. It is much easier, faster, and cheaper.
