Windows 7: Making a duplicate ISO disk

08 Oct 2015   #11

Home Premium and Pro 32 bit and 64 bit (4 computers)

strollin, he needed to create an ISO from a Disc. He no longer had the ISO to burn.
So you should have chosen the 2nd option in your screenshot: Create image file (aka ISO) from disc.

ICIT2LOL: you put the DVD in the drive, select the 2nd option and you will get your ISO.

Then you write the ISO to as many other DVDs as you wish. (Me, I prefer USB sticks).

From the OP's original post "...copy those disks by saving them to a folder on my desktop and then using ImgBurn to make a further copies of the disks from those folders." He said he was trying to make disc copies from the copies he had in folders. He didn't state that he couldn't make the images.

The ISO Burner seems to work ok anyway
Naw, using the file browser to locate the file you want to burn to disc works equally well. I used drag and drop since I already had the folder with the ISOs open so it was easier to drag the ISO I wanted over rather than navigate to the folder again.

I've just never heard anyone say they needed to fiddle around with ImgBurn to get it to work before. I've used many different disc burning apps and always felt ImgBurn was the easiest to use I've ever come across.

The important thing is that you found something that works for you.

Yep well there seemed to be a bit of confusion at first Plod and this wouldn't have happened if my Ivy Bridge board had not decided to die very slowly and I couldn't copy those ISO's to a stick for some reason so I made individual disks from the originals on that machine as they are too valuable to lose seeing the cost of re[lacing 7 with an OEM now
