Windows 7: Burn ISO Images Natively in Windows 7

Burn ISO Images Natively in Windows 7

Quote:


Geeks and IT Pros often have to burn an ISO image (.iso file) to physical media such as a CD or DVD to test out and install software. We have made it easier to burn ISO images in Windows 7 by natively supporting the ability to burn ISO images directly within Windows without the need of a third party tool.

To burn an ISO image in Windows 7, all someone needs to do is simply right-click on an ISO image and choose “Burn disc image”.



This launches Windows Disc Image Burner, giving you the option to burn the ISO image to either a CD or DVD.



If you check “Verify disc after burning”, it will verify the ISO image burned correctly. Choosing to verify a disc you burned will require additional time so if you’re in a hurry, you will probably want to ensure this option is unchecked.

I often burn ISO images to a DVD-RW so I can re-use the media. What’s great about Windows Disc Image Burner is that it will detect that a DVD-RW has content on it already and prompt you asking if you would like to erase the disc and burn new content to it. This ensures you don’t accidently erase and burn over something important that may be on that DVD-RW disc. This is awesome because it lets me re-use DVD-RW media.



If you haven’t already discovered this feature in the Windows 7 Beta, you should give it a shot especially if you are burning ISO images quite a bit.

That was seen in the 7000 build as well as anything newer but not available there. This will be the first version that natively supports iso images which will be another inviting item seen in 7 there.

I use it to burn my windows 7 builds, would be nice if they had some speed control though.

Imgburn is where its at! I, too, tone down the burn speed when I want to assure a solid dvd. Works every time!

+5 - every build since 6801 that I have burned to disc I used that utility as well. Works like a champ.

Good over all for multiple formats, but I cannot wait for 4X burning - I use the native utility for ISOs....

I use that if I'm lazy and don't want to start up the main gui for :: RocketDivision :: CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD recording and mastering

The free version supports a bit more then just burning iso images like data dvds and video files. I use that for seeing GParted and live Linux cds burned since that's also far less bloasted then Roxio and other programs. That's an option if you are not able to get your usual burning software to run and want to burn other types other then dvds for 7.

Win 7 ISO is good enough for everyday use. I used it to burn 7077 iso and install it.
