"Does what it says, but hijacked my system"

August 06, 2007  |  By marc.jefferson

 |  Version: MagicDisc 2.5.74

Pros

this app does what it says it does... i was able to convert several bootable cd's (linux distros) to iso files on my harddrive. ( i wanted to set them up for use on VMware Player). it was very straightforward and easy to use.

easy to set up, easy to understand and easy to utilize, too bad it hijacks your computer (read on...)

Cons

this app runs automatically with an icon showing in the taskbar. (to be fair, i uninstalled it before i figured out if this could be turned off through the program settings). being that it stays on, it was running when i attempted to shut off my computer, and windows stalled during shutdown and wouldn't close. i had to unplug my computer to turn it off, and when i restarted it it again hung up, and stalled out before my desktop icons, security apps and wireless were loaded and with my taskbar being placed out of sight below my working screen.

several attempts did not fix the problem... i finally was able to uninstall it and things returned to normal.

does what it says, but it doesn't play well with the rest of my sytem... if i dare try it again i will install it, use it, then uninstall it before trying to turn off my system... this is inconvenient, but the only way it will work.

"Clean, neat, effective"

 |  Version: MagicDisc 2.5.74

Pros

Downloaded and installed (on W2K) like a dream. I was straight away able to open and use a IMG file that had defeated the other tools that I'd tried.

Very nice!

"Works Well, BUT! Remove DLA first!"

July 24, 2007  |  By admgtr

 |  Version: MagicDisc 2.5.74

Pros

Once installed Magicdisc is the complete onestop ISO shop and its free, fantastic!

Cons

If DLA (drive letter access) software is installed, Magic disc will hang the PC on install.

Simply remove any DLA software before installing Magicdisc to avoid this issue.

"Didn't install properly. Had to boot in "Last good" mode."

June 07, 2007  |  By bannini

 |  Version: MagicDisc 2.5.74

Cons

Didn't install the virtual hardware properly. Hung my machine at every attempt. Had to boot in "Last Good Configuration" mode. Uninstall was only available through running the "unwise.exe" file directly and not through "Add/Remove Programs". It may be good, if it worked.
