Yes,I do like this feature for it's simplicity and saves time downloading third party utilities.

Yea the built in ISO image burning feature is good to have in W7U but, there's no control for burning speeds.
I did do a test burn using it & it worked fine, but for a DVD ISO of Windows 7 I prefer to use a program I "Know" for a fact does a good job so I don't make a bunch of drink coasters...
So with that said Nero 7 Ultra Enhanced is my program of choice for all my burning needs.
(If you are wondering I hate the new Nero 8-9 user interface & prefer using version 7)

If they were honest up front I'd probably purchase a copy but the free version has such limited use that I won't bother.

I DO HATE this type of sell -- download something for free -- but if you REALLY want to perform a task you are interested in then "Upgrade to the PRO version".

At least with UltraISO you know exactly what you are getting and it CAN do DVD images from Commercial DVD's without problems.

No thanks.

The Windows built in ISO burner seems a good idea -- but again Microsoft why hobble it -- just adding a few features so you could COMPILE an ISO as well would be great.

I'm sick of NERO now --it's just BLOATWARE. The old command line Linux program is also good (and free) -- makeisofs but it has a CLI (I don't mind CLI's but I know most are probably more confortable with a GUI. You can use makeisofs in windows as well using Bartpe tools .

What I found and actually took notice of with the StarBurn program linked earlier was they compare the free version to the full version right there on the download page. While not listing support for iso images they show no support for remote blu ray burning as the three versions are compared.



When replacing the dvd burner lately Nero Essentials was included with the drive and still not used. For a variety of burns that's about the best non bloatware you can find for various formats and allows you to lower the burn speed! You don't see that in ImgBurn there while that usually works just as well.

One of the main reasons you should be seeing iso support in 7 from the start is simply the option of buying Vista eventually 7 online without a disk! You download the upgrade image directly to replace the existing installation while online. Now you can also burn the download to disk directly which helps for many without any program for burning those.

One program I don't see mentioned is Ashampoo burning studio, Version 6.75 is available totally free (look out for short term free offers on later versions, I actually run the 2008). AFAIK 6.75 is fine in 7 does iSO, blue-ray and many others

Have a look here ....

The developer for that sees quite a variety of freewares from a look at the home page. Ashampoo® - We Make Software!

A better description seen for the 6.75 is seen at Download Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 6.75 - Choose your files. Burn your disc. Finished! - Softpedia

I generally prefer to go direct to the home page if found for any of them from the start. But that could be useful here more for video projects from the description since the iso part I have covered already!

Is that a shareware as well? The 8.04 is seen at http://ashampoo-burning-studio.en.softonic.com/

The actual version I'm using is Ashampoo Burning Studio 2008 Advanced,version 8.03 which I obtained as a free cover mount with a UK magazine some time ago so that would suggest that it has been made available for free in the past.

There is a certain amount of spam I receive from the developer but with a few well aimed ticks in the news section of the application setup this is minimal

For the first time downloader however you would still see a shareware version. What you saw there was unlocked due to already having a paid subscription for the magazine.

There's another site that sees the "give away of the day" you can also look at for any free giveaways of burning programs or simply go for the free for home use option. Those companies tend to make their money from selling the full versions to commercial interests.

Nero only becomes Bloatware if you dont pay any attention doing the install. You are given the choice of installing everything or installing just the components you want, by doing a Custom install. Even if you cant be bothered doing that, you are still given a choice which file associations go to Nero, if any . Better to select 'None' during the install, than have a big cry about Nero taking over, on top of being huge and bloated.

It makes sense for MS to include an Iso burner, for the reason given by Night Hawk...

It worked fine for me when it appeared while checking out my 7068 download .

The only time i used a Ashampoo freebie was a few years ago. I soon wished i had not, as they sent me heaps of spam and made it difficult to unsubscribe from it . I really hate that type of sleazy crap and will never deal with them again.

That's one of the reasons I would point out the free versions of StarBurn or BurnOn another one found that will run on 7 as well as Vista and XP alike. The annoyance with BurnOn however is seeing an IE popup window after each burn for buying the full version there.

Neither of those two see any spam unless you intentionally check off the receive regular updates option like most other programs you would consider downloading. The added good one about seeing 7 now being able to support iso burning is never having to put up with the spammatorium! from 3rd party vendors.
