    Re: Ashampoo Burning Studio

    And you'll note a key element of that offer is a GREAT price to "upgrade" to the latest level if you want (or need to). This same route is the way I got into using the product in the first place and they've made this possible at other times in the past. It's a very good product and worth a switch.

    Re: Ashampoo Burning Studio

    First, let me say I own a copy of Ashampoo Burning Studio 2008 and love it.

    But, this article is confusing. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    They are offering Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 but once you get it you can "upgrade" to Ashampoo Burning Studio 2008 for a few bucks?
    I'm looking at the Ashampoo site and don't see a version 2009 offered. But, the link is for a download from http://www.vnudownloads.co.uk/ashampoo_bur...09_804_4877.exe.

    Anyway, the product is worth a try. REmember, since the d/l isn't from the author of the software be sure you scan the file for virus's first.

    Re: Ashampoo Burning Studio

    I think they make up these "fictitious" titles when they get ready to allow the freebie offers to generate more business. They've done it before - see thread at <post:=675,959>post 675,959</post:>. I'd bet that the alleged "2009" version is simply some prior level and after that they'll have you hooked. And they're right - as I said, they did it to me and I'm a happy camper.

    Re: Ashampoo Burning Studio

    Al's correct about the "fictitious" name, but the upgrade offer is to Burning Studio 8 (not 2008)-(presumably a version that's 2000 years old <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15> )

    The upgraded version has more features (which I've never used, but am happy to have there in case I need to use them) according to the article.

    Re: Ashampoo Burning Studio

    I'm assuming that your screenshot is of the "Ashampoo 2009 free offering"? IF <----- that is the case then I'd be curious to know if it has all the features of my paid version of version 8.04. See the list of features in the screenshot below:

    Here is a clip of mine. I haven't played around with it to much. But I did use the 'Back-up' feature of my Picture folder and it went smoothly to a DVD.

    Re: Ashampoo Burning Studio

    Pardon me if I jump on the band wagon, well behind the times it seems as the version I am using was offered as a freebie some months ago in the UK "Computeractive" magazine..... version 6 which is probably why it was offered free & to get potential customers for the latest version. However; it does the * basics so I am curious to know if it is worth clicking on the link in the first post of this thread and (from the comments I've read) end up with version 8? I have compared the tabs in this thread with those on version 6 that I am using and the only differences seem to be the options of "Expert Function" & " Print & Design". Don't know if they will represent another feather in my cap for (* as I said) up till now I have [thanks to an earlier post by Big Al] only used the third & fifth tabs which I have found easy to use. If only Nero 7 was as easy, maybe it is for some but for me it falters quite often. Regards..... SF

    Re: Ashampoo Burning Studio

    Well, I don't know what the differences in function are between Version 6 and 8 but if you're liking the product and it's <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> why don't you go for the Version 8. Unlike Nero, which I also used to use, you shouldn't have any trouble upgrading. I have burned a lot of CDs and have had NO troubles with Ashampoo Version 8.
