Burning iso to hdd

Hi I decided to make a copy of my windows 7 home premium dvd,So I went about it with the use of dvd fab it copied the dvd to my folder on the hdd okay.But it has copied it as a 7zip file.
Is that normal or should it be something other.Any help Please.Should I have used another program for the job?
Thank You.

I would have used ImgBurn.

It's a 2 part procedure:

You first create an image file from the contents of the original DVD. It should be saved on your hard drive as an ISO file, not 7 zip.

You then write (burn) that ISO file to a fresh blank disk.

Above is a link that takes you through it, including getting ImgBurn.

I know nothing about DVD Fab, so don't know where you went wrong.

It is possible there is an ISO file inside that 7 zip file. You'd have to unzip it to find out. If it is an ISO inside, then all you'd have to do is burn that ISO to a disc.

Then of course confirm that it will in fact boot your PC and begin the install procedure.

If you just want a copy of the disc, just do a disc (DVD) copy. There is no need to save it as an iso and then burn the iso.

Did you watch the video?

It's explained there.

You get the program. Open it and you should see the image below.

You'd choose "create image file from disc" to copy the contents of the DVD to your hard drive.

You'd later choose "write image file to disc" whenever you want to burn that ISO to a new DVD.

I'd burn one and test it. You need to know if it works. You can't tell just by having the ISO on your hard drive.

You have .iso files associated with 7zip in Control Panel>Defaults which is why it's showing as a 7Zip file. It probably will change to ImgBurn association when you install that. You can ignore that and just store it without regard to its association, then when ready to burn it to DVD load it into ImgBurn, or burn to disk or write to flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool
