Iomega and ValuSoft Release Burn & Go Gold, CD Burning Software

(January 21, 2002)
Iomega Corporation and ValuSoft have teamed up to introduce Burn & Go Gold, the newest CD burning software for the PC.

The sequel to Burn & Go, ValuSoft's debut CD-Recording program, Burn & Go Gold features HotBurn from Iomega. This powerful new program combines what were once time-consuming CD recording functions into one powerful and customizable interface.

Perfect for backing up hard drives, creating custom music CDs, burning MP3s and organizing digital photos, Burn & Go Gold offers a full suite of features including:

  • Simple Two Step Process--Simply select the files you want to record and select Create CD.

  • Drag `n' Drop Burning--Easily move and burn selected media with the click of a mouse.

  • Direct CD-to-CD Copy--Copy from a source CD directly to a CD-R/RW drive.

  • Multi-platform Capabilities--Create data CDs that are readable on most available Operating Systems.

  • Mix Hot Audio CDs--Burn & Go Gold technology automatically translates MP3 files to standard audio format so users can take their favorite music from their computer to their car, stereo or portable CD player.

  • Read and Write Tests--Non-interactive read tests allow users to test the throughput of their CD-ROM drives, while simulated write tests tell users the maximum write speed of their system.

  • Prevent Burning Errors--Support for BURN-Proof and other technologies help minimize costly burning errors caused by buffer under runs.

    "HotBurn has consistently performed faster than industry leading products in usability testing," says Germaine Ward, Vice President of Sales for Iomega. "In four out of five tasks measured, users were able to set up and complete CD projects quicker using our technology. Burn

    Go Gold offers consumers a more powerful and robust solution in this highly competitive category."

    Burn & Go Gold's technology extends beyond burning CDs. Integrated label technology imports file and track information for quicker label and jewel case cover creation. Users can create their own disk art using label templates, or select from 10,000+ cool clipart images. Burn & Go Gold also includes 20 CD labels and a labeling system for users to affix their custom CD labels onto their newly burned CDs.

    "We are pleased to have partnered with Iomega," states Scott Zerby, President of ValuSoft. "They have made the overwhelmingly complex task of CD burning fast, easy and fun for everyone--whether a novice or experienced user. They have set a new standard for the CD-Recording software category."

    Burn & Go Gold will be available for $19.99 SRP at most computer software retailers and mass merchants in January.
