Nero Burning ROM of Ahead
is versatile program and is even capable of burning so called ISO
ISO files (files that have a suffix .ISO) are often found on the
Internet and commonly created using CD-writer software by Adpatec.
But it would we a bit of a waste of money and disk space to buy
2 CD-writer programs, specially when the one you've got (Nero) can
do it all.
Simpely put, an ISO file is nothing more than an exact copy
of an entire CD into one single file.
Note: Read the disclaimer
first! Copying CD-Roms can be illegal!
So how do I write ISO files?
1. Start Nero.
If Nero starts with the Wizard the choose "Close
Wizard", if Nero starts with "New Compilation"
select "Cancel". Now choose from the menu "File"
- "Burn Image".
2. Choose files of type "All Files (*.*)"
or "Images Files (*.nrg;*.iso;*.cue)"
The fileselector by default uses the Nero "Images
Files (*.nrg)" filetypes, changes this to "All Files (*.*)"
as shown below.
Note: Newer releases (as of version 5.5.x.x)
of Nero support ISO files instantly using the filetype "Images
Files (*.nrg;*.iso;*.cue)". If you have such a version, then
choose this filetype instead of "All (*.*)".
3. Select the ISO file and select "Open".
4. Check foreign
Nero might now prompts you with the question what settings
to use (newer versions will not prompt you if not needed). I have no golden
tip on how to determine these settings. I always had succes by simply
5. Check the tracks and start to burn.
In the ISO file there are one or more CD-tracks, verify
this by clicking the "Info" tab:
On the tab "Burn" you can start writing
the CD by clicking "Write".
Well, that's all you need to do to write ISO files with
Nero ... isn't it simple once you know how?
