    ImgBurn. I love the little jingle it plays when it completes a task.

    Another vote for ImgBurn. If you can buy, try DVDFab.

    ImgBurn. It's free. You would have to be stupid to buy/download anything else.

    I also suggest UltraISO .. it is not very costly and you can upgrade to new releases for free. I have it on my system (and also PowerISO which allows free updates in same major version #)
    I also have IMGBURN (which is there mainly since it free and DVDFAB works best with it) Long time ago I had Nero 6, but they have gotten bloated and way overpriced for what you get.

    It's a fail guys it's a fail... I downloaded and installed the ImgBurn but it installed a bunch of ad junk stuff and not the actual software! I tried it twice. Could not find the program to execute other than the ad stuff. :D

    :(

    I just went here to download imgburn. I picked the first mirror site listed.
    http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

    If you want to skip a step, this is the actual link to download the software on the digital digest site (to avoid clicking the wrong link), or you can click the green download button after following the mirror link above:
    http://www.digital-digest.com/softw...fdtme&decode=57932eda3a1b387f935d163f382f120b

    The file downloaded is SetupImgBurn_2.5.7.0.exe. If you got something else, you downloaded the wrong file(s).

    I installed with the default settings and the program runs at the end via the "run imgburn now" at the end of the setup. It also runs perfectly with no adware that I can see by typing img in your Win7 start menu search.

    Does it absolutely need to be ISO, or do you just want it to be stored in any lossless format?
    DVD and Blu-Ray stuff is so damn sketchy that your best bet is to bookmark http://www.snapfiles.com/ (a free software website) and look around.

    Right now I'm using MakeMKV for everything because it's the only free one that seems to work with Blu-Ray movies. MKV is a container, so all that software really does is take the stuff from a DVD or Blu-Ray and store it in MKV containers. Nothing is lost or converted.

    Why do you need to create ISO for CDs or DVDs?

    Wouldn't be easier to copy everything to external HDD?
    If you want to reduce size in CDs you have, convert to .flac format - it's about 1/2 size of CD and it's LOSSELESS...

    DVD's? just copy TS folder to external HDD - saves a lot of room, if you have some degree of paranoia(like me) - make a backup on another external HDD...
    Much less space, WD Elements are pretty reliable, can plug to Media Player and watch DVDs right from Ext. HDD thru Media Player...

    Turned out I've been downloading the wrong file. It gave me huge DOWNLOAD link to the PDFCreator download...:mad:

    Thank you. Your support is better than some 3rd party services that charge you arm and leg for service. You provided me awesome support for free! Thanks. :D I now have the correct software downloaded.


    I prefer ISO, as I am trying to condense as one file instead of multiples. I'm doing this to share my stuff via torrent. And yes it needs to be lossless. I don't want compression.

    thanks. :)

    I want ISO so I can easily share it via torrent. The users on the other end will download, extract to ISO and run. ;)

    Well, for CD's, I guess I could just extract each songs and share that too, as you can add as folders for torrents. I guess it was more the question of handling DVD movies.

    No I don't use Blu-ray and it's too much bull sh#t to me. Way too much headache and troublesome. :D

    It'd be piracy. Those old "jap movies or idols" have rights owned by someone and are available to buy. You (probably) don't have permission to distribute from the rights owner...

    Corkyg,

    Little guys do steal a little...

    Do you think, RIAA are a bunch of angels? Not everything what's legal - is moral, not all, what's illegal - is immoral...
    Usually, lawmakers themselves don't follow rules they created

    I've worked for Record Co. for a couple of years...one artist released a CD album, sold 25,000 copies in US, artist didn't receive a penny of sold CDs royalties...Isn't it a Piracy?

    Many well known artists, before mp3 came out, have been ripped out of millions of $$$ by record co's...Not piracy?

    To sell a 128kbps mp3 song for $1 - isn't a scam?

    Bernie Maddoff have done pickpocketing in financial world comparing to what RIAA and record co's doing to recording artists....

    http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20...ing-hundreds-millions-royalties-artists.shtml

    you casn find more like this, if you want to...

    Or maybe you one of those, who believe that god told pope to step down?
