InfraRecorder Portable

Totally Free Burner's interface appears a tad clunky thanks to oddly-spaced, bit-mapped close/minimize window icons and somewhat garish text--but its workflow is immaculate. Simply choose from the four jobs on the main window: audio CD, video CD, data DVD/CD, or Bin/ISO image. Up pops a nicely thought-out dialog that allows you to add files or choose which type of image to burn.

Totally Free Burner performed fine in my tests, burning nary a coaster. The audio CD creator handled the WMA, MP3, OGG, and 16-bit wave files I tested it with, but didn't recognize 24-bit wave files, AAC, or MP4. That's not a problem for most folks, but iTunes aficionados and musicians should take note. Other than that, I have no complaints. This is a great little proggie with a very light disk footprint.
