From Alex Feinman:
ISO Recorder is a tool (power toy) that allows (depending on the Windows version) to burn CD and DVD images (DVD support is only available on Windows Vista), copy disks, make images of the existing data CDs and DVDs and create ISO images from a content of a disk folder. ISO Recorder has been conceived during Windows XP beta program, when Microsoft for the first time started distributing new OS builds as ISO images. Even though the new OS had CD-burning support (by Roxio), it did not have an ability to record an image. ISO Recorder has filled this need and has been one of the poular Windows downloads ever since.
What's new in this version:
This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
Does not work on Vista Business 64-bit SP1. Crashes when making the iso. The software was released for RC1 (Release Candidate 1.) That was BEFORE the official release of Vista for those that don't know. Or HIS software is RC1, which means it's not ready for prime time anyway. No new version for the production release of Vista?? Even x86 version says RC1... Even his website says there are known bugs with no fixes.
Super simple extension to Windows Vista Explorer. Find the .ISO you want to burn. Right click the filename in Explorer. Select "Copy image to CD". Done. What else do you need? I haven't gotten a tool this simple in years. Alex, you've done a GREAT job here.
ZERO documentation. While the tool is super simple to use, a 'readme.txt' or something would have been nice. My first minute or two with is was a little confusing.
Several versions for different OSes may confuse some people, maybe just make one larger distro, and figure it out from there? I don't even know if that's possible, but just a suggestion.
Many people save money and get the 32-bit Vista on 64-bit processors. You need to download and use the version appropriate for your OS, not the actual CPU. Tool worked great for me, once I paid attention and got the right version.
