ISO Recorder is a tool (power toy) for Windows XP, 2003 and now Windows Vista, that allows (depending on the Windows version) to burn CD and DVD images, 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.
My groovy MacBook has a combo-drive that not even the current release of Nero recognises. Initially I thought this would be a problem as I often make CDs at work and I'd never used the Windows CD burning wizzard (or whatever they call it!) - but since I only ever have to put files onto CDs (never audio or video CDs - but as it turns out the Windows wizzard will do audio somewhat clumsily) I figured I'd give it a go. It's fine, but won't burn the contents of ISO images directly - this little Windows add-on does the business - I needed something to burn the ISO of the Dapper Drake!
