Create ISO Image to Hard Disk

Recommended Posts

Aplogies if ImgBurn already does this but:

 

I use ImgBurn under W2K as a convenient and reliable way to burn ISO images to disc. These are usually downloads of LINUX images, etc.

 

It would be nice if the reverse could take place, insert the OS disc and create an ISO Image to hard disk. This would be useful for long term archiving, CDROMs are not to be relied upon for long term storage, or for mounting with say Daemon Tools or as VMware CDROM images.

There is a read function in ImgBurn for non protected discs, this allows you to create an .iso, I don't know if it's what you require for your purposes tho. :)

I think you mean there WILL BE.... (it's not out yet!)

 

It's just a very basic one that'll let you read DATA CDs and DVDs to an ISO image.

That'll be handy for we people with only one DVD drive per system especially when some of those old not so good quality discs need reburning :thumbup:

That will keep a lot of people happy and save countless people asking for it over and over again.

 

 

Suprised and pleased you changed your mind.

Geez LFC, I thought you were only going to use celery. I guess the Boss takes leaks more seriously than I imagined.

I decided to punish myself to the fullest extent possible, I have even banned myself from my usual weekend wombat fun :blush:

I had a couple of samsung drives on order from scan but they let me down and I've had to cancel my order and get them from elsewhere.

 

I want them before I release the new one so I can try and tweak the samsung book type setting code.

 

So yeah, as lfc said, it'll be out when it's ready ;)
