Have you ever downloaded an .ISO file and wasn’t clear on how to get it onto a disc? Need to make an image from a disc? Have you ever needed to convert a set of files or a folder into a disc image? Sure you could use Nero or one of the other heavy applications to pull this off. But, let me fill you in on a great Windows freeware application for using ISO files.
ISO Recorder takes a lot of pain out of these tasks. To burn an image to disc, it’s as simple as right clicking the ISO file. To make an ISO image of disc, just right click the disc from “My Computer”. Folders can be converted to ISO images just by right clicking the folder and selecting the option from the context menu.
This great little program has saved me hours of time. I’ve converted a lot of my frequently used discs to images. It’s a lot easier then keeping a bunch of discs laying around on my desk at home. I’ve also used it many times for burning ISOs as well. It makes quick work out of getting Linux install discs together. A few times in school, I’ve used it for putting portfolio disc images together.
But enough about that. ISO Recorder is available for download for different versions of Windows XP and Vista. Be sure to pay attention to which version and service pack you’re using. Happy imaging and burning! Kudos to Alex Feinman the developer.
