Photographic equipment manufacture Yongnuo has recently been releasing more camera products.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 19, Disc Creation Software - Review & Demonstration

I have used many versions and brands of disc burning software since the first main stream CD burners hit the store shelves in the mid 90's. Often the software was very lacking in features or was completely overpriced. With Ashampoo Burning Studio 19 you get the best of both worlds with a product that is both feature rich and also extremely affordable.
