Many people believe that with the advent of hardware like USB drives and software like Cloud Computing and Big Data, the importance of old school secondary memory like CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray Discs has diminished. I tend to be of contrary belief. These discs are still very much of need in various operations like creating bootable windows installation medium, writing audio and videos to play automatically, creating recovery files and backup.
That is why, burning software which helps in creating data discs are still very much important. There are many paid burning software in the market but you can easily find some reliable free Blu-ray DVD burning software on the internet.
