Here’s a list of 5 free Blu-ray burning software for Windows 10 which you can use to burn Blu-ray discs on your Windows 10 powered devices. Blu-rays are great for backup because they can store a lot of data, and will last a long time, if properly handled. Those who are interested in burning high definition videos will also need to use Blu-rays. Programs that I tested range from simplistic ones, which support just disc burning, to the more advanced ones, that support things like cover printing and a wide range of file types.
True Burner is a Blu-ray burning software for Windows 10 that comes in a very lightweight package. Despite that it still packs quite a punch. What I mean by that is it’s small (2MB). You can use it to create both data and multimedia Blu-rays. During the new project setup, True Burner gives you the option of creating data or video (BDMV) Blu-rays discs.
CDs and DVDs are also supported, as is burning bootable discs (for operating systems). It doesn’t take long to figure out the interface. Toolbar up top has everything needed for setting the parameters of the burning process. Down below is the file browser in the left sidebar and the list of files that you want to add to the Blu-ray. When all the files that you want to burn are added to the list, click on the “Burn” button. Burn settings window will appear, where you can select the burner, burning speed, burn type, and lastly start the burning process.

ImgBurn – free Blu-ray burning software for Windows 10
ImgBurn is a Blu-ray burning software for Windows 10 that’s very small in size, around 3MB. Its small size means that it doesn’t have that many features, but it can still be used to burn data, copy discs and create multimedia CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.
Note that in order to burn the video discs appropriate folder structure needs to be created beforehand. Other interesting features that I found are disc burn queuing, good disc image format support (NRG, MDS, ISO, PDI, BIN, CUE) and disc verification. After launching ImgBurn, you’ll see the simplified menu, with icons, see image above. More advanced setup can be accessed by selecting “Mode” from the top left corner menu.
Despite having CD and XP in its name, CDBurnerXP is a CD, DVD and Blu-ray burning software that’s fully supported by Windows 10. It supports data, video and audio disc burning, as well as ISO burning, disc copying, bootable disk creation and more.
Disc settings are automatically detected depending on what kind of disc type is in the burner (CD, DVD, Blu-ray). Creating a burning project is pretty straightforward. Just select the disc type from the main menu and then add the files that you want to burn, see image above. Built-in file browser makes adding files very easy. Select the device you want to use, number of copies, and click “Burn”. In another last step of the setup, you’ll be asked to tweak the burn speed, select burn method, etc. Label printing is supported, which is great if you want a label printed for you audio CD, or Blu-ray movie, for example.

On top of the usual options that I already mentioned like burning data discs, audio/video media, disc copying/image creation and so on, you can also find features like creating bootable USB drives, disc info viewer, audio CD ripping and more. Audio CDs can be ripped into MP3, FLAC and more. Setup is pretty straightforward, just select the appropriate option and add the files you want to burn, or tweak the copy settings, depending on what you selected. When finished, click “Burn” and wait for the process to complete.
Out of the 5 Blu-ray burning software for Windows 10 from the list above, the ones that I enjoyed using the most are Ashampoo Burning Studio Free and CDBurnerXP. Ashampoo is the most advanced burning software out there, and if you need advanced features then definitely have a look at Ashampoo. CDBurnerXP is more lightweight, but still has a decent set of features.
