Windows 7: Trouble making an iso image

Trouble making an iso image

Hi guys,

Picked up a copy of windows 7 from my university today and have to return the disc to the college. I'm trying to make a copy of the disc so if anything happens in the future I'll have the disc and be able to reinstall. Problem is my computer only has one DVD drive.

Normally when making a copy of a disc I create an iso image with magiciso then burn that iso image to a disc. I'm attempting to do that right now with my windows 7 disc and everything seemed fine creating the iso image until it got to 62%, which is where progress has stayed for the past half hour, at 62%. Seems some people have been having issues with the install stick at 62%, but I'm not trying to install yet, just make an iso image.

So my questions are do you think whatever issue people are having with the windows 7 install at 62% could be causing my problem with the iso image? Secondly how can I get past this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Give ImgBurn a try. It's what I use and I find it very versatile and forgiving.

Please do not use this software to make illegal copies of copyrighted discs.

I may do that in a bit. Recently progress has moved on to 63% and gotten stuck there. I'm half afraid that it's about to push through and if I stop it now the entire process of getting stuck at 62% will start again.

Edit: I certainly hope my university isn't handing out illegal copies to their students!

Don't make an .iso file from the disc - it's itself an .iso file. Just copy it to the HD , and burn the disc with Iso-burner - free program.

To burn CD,DVD images my longtime favorite is ISO Recorder - a very simple tool. (DVD image is possible only with Vista and Windows 7 computers)

Download it from here and give it a shot. (All this assuming that the disk is OK)
