CyberLink today launched a new version of its burning software, Power2Go, which enables backing up photos and video social media sites as well as a Disc Management feature that catalogs the discs and files users have burned into a searchable database.
Additionally, Power2Go 9 adds support for the popular media file types, such as FLAC and APE audio formats and MKV and FLV video formats.
The software supports burning of CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs (including BDXL.) It automatically split large projects across multiple discs and creates images of
CDs, unprotected DVDs and Blu-ray discs. Through the Desktop Gadget, users can easily drag files, discs, music or video to burn.

Through the Disc Manager, users can browse and search a catalog of discs that have been burned.
Other features include system recovery for full backups of Windows systems and disc encryption with 128-bit or 256-bit security.
Creative users are able to make audio CDs and long-playing MP3 / WMA DVDs,
create DVDs and VCDs with CyberLink's authoring tools, burn photo gallery discs that run on a PC and also get free menu templates through Cyberlink's DirectorZone community site.
Extras include the the ISO toolkit, which enables the mount of disc images as virtual drives and browsing of the contents of ISO files; CyberLink WaveEditor 2 audio editing software; audio conversion of audio CDs into MP3, WMA or lossless FLAC and APE files and; LabelPrint for the creation of CD/DVD labels.
