Freeridecoding allows overwrites with BurnAgain DVD

While DVDs and burning software have permitted multi-session discs for a long time, new software by Freeridecoding promises to address a continuing drawback: overwriting.

The group claims that its new BurnAgain DVD application will let owners use the same portion of a DVD several times before no more changes can be made. The software checks to see whether identical existing files are already present, and only burns new files to the disc.

Users can choose to change the title of a disc with each burn or hide previously copied data, and all resource forks are kept intact during operation. Only CD-R, CD-RW and DVD+RW discs are currently supported, but Freeride is hoping to add more media with subsequent versions of the software.

BurnAgain is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4, and costs $15 for students, $25 for a single license, and $50 for a family pack. An upgrade from BurnAgain 2.x is $10.
