It may have nothing to do with the images themselves. From your description so far it sounds more Windows related. When trying out the built in burn option just now without a blank in one drive it sprung the tray open on the second optical drive due to haivng a used disk in it.

If you find any iso images you made yourself are somehow glitched you simply start over by creating a new one out of the original files unless one or more of those is...? For images downloaded like the RCs, Linux distros, etc. you are usually better off redownloading them over to insure integrity.

At times depending on what it is you could try extracting everything into a folder to create a new one from them. But you can easily run into the same problems with any impartial or corrupted data. In simple terms you go around in circles with anything downloaded if found incomplete or foobar for some reason since you only have the files that came in the image to work with!

If you downloaded something from a torrent site the simple advice would be to dump it for being a problem from the start. One of those images you posted showed an XP Pro cd image download? I wouldn't even waste the time since 7 now offers the XP mode using the XP Pro base for compatibility when you need to run older programs that simply won't go on or run on 7.

If you can get the data extracted from the iso, you can just double click the setup in the folder it comes out in and it will install that way, but if your having this much trouble, I would just redownload to be comfortable if it were me.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Is you external Drive hooked up via USB or eSATA? And have you tried removing the drive from it's enclosure and mounting it as a fixed disk in your computer?

I know it's a long shot, but maybe your external enclosure is beginning to act up, and is passing bad data across?

hmmm alrightie,

@night hawk
most of the files are game ISOs and a few are Linux/Windows, and i cant extract them and rebuild cause all programs pick them up as unreadable. i know the original file wasn't corupt cause they all did work like a month ago, and i really don't want to redownlaod as it would total over 100GB as most of my external ISO's.

I would but i cant extract them.....

i might try that now.....

Have you tried running CHKDSK from an Administrator Command Prompt on the drive containing the ISOs:
  1. Click the Start Orb
  2. Type "CMD" (without quotes) in the search box
  3. In the search results, right-click on "CMD", the select "Run as Administrator"
  4. In the command windows, type "CHKDSK E: /F /R /X" (without quotes) and press <ENTER> ("E:" is the letter of the drive in question, whatever that may be on your system)
Checks a disk and displays a status report.

CHKDSK [volume[[path]filename]]] [/F] [/V] [/R] [/X] [/I] [/C] [/L[:size]] [/B]

  volume          Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),
                  mount point, or volume name.
  filename        FAT/FAT32 only: Specifies the files to check for fragmentation.
  /F              Fixes errors on the disk.
  /V              On FAT/FAT32: Displays the full path and name of every file
                  on the disk.
                  On NTFS: Displays cleanup messages if any.
  /R              Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information
                  (implies /F).
  /L:size         NTFS only:  Changes the log file size to the specified number
                  of kilobytes.  If size is not specified, displays current
  /X              Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary.
                  All opened handles to the volume would then be invalid
                  (implies /F).
  /I              NTFS only: Performs a less vigorous check of index entries.
  /C              NTFS only: Skips checking of cycles within the folder
  /B              NTFS only: Re-evaluates bad clusters on the volume
                  (implies /R)
The /I or /C switch reduces the amount of time required to run Chkdsk by
skipping certain checks of the volume.
