ImgBurn is a nice lightweight software that allows users to create ISO image from discs, files and folders, and also burn an ISO image or folder to disc easily. Because of its simplicity and functionality, ImgBurn is among the top picks when it comes to free DVD burning software. You can use this software to make exact backups from DVDs. Nevertheless, copying protected DVDs with ImgBurn is out of the question since ImgBurn doesn’t natively support any disc going with copy protections.
