XP Burn Component

The XP Burn Component allows your .NET applications to burn files to CDR/W discs on a Window XP or Windows 2003 Server system. This component does not work for systems which have a different OS installed; though it will detect that case and give a reasonable error message. This component talks directly to the system IMAPI interfaces and does not use the Windows XP CD burning wizard, so its possible to create your own snazzy UI for burning CDs.

Though the component is a UserControl, I wouldn’t recommend that you put it in the toolbox. Instead, simply reference it and use it like you would use any other framework type (the constructor can potentially throw exceptions, so for robust handling you should wrap it in a try& catch). The documentation and source for the component is included in the download.
