CDRWIN is a CD/DVD burning software for Microsoft Windows developed by Golden Hawk Technology company.

Once popular, CDRWIN's usage has diminished due to the bundling of improved limited versions of other software packages, such as Nero Burning ROM and Roxio Easy CD Creator, with new computers and optical drives.

Unique Features

CDRWIN is known for its unique features like analyzing the TOC of a CD. It is also the program from which the idea of cue sheets came.

CDRWIN is useful for the karaoke industry, as it fully supports reading/writing karaoke CDs.

Playstation TOC Protection

CDRWIN was mostly used during the Playstation era. People could backup Playstation games quickly and easily, and soon discovered that its unique cuesheet operations allowed them to alter the TOC for any cd being duplicated, provided the CD-Writer supported writing an invalid TOC. Most CD-Writing software could not make copies nor images of the cd if the TOC was invalid. This problem was overcome when CloneCD was released and duplication was made more accessible when Nero Burning Rom was updated to support this type of copying.
