ISO question


sylent

Recommended Posts

Or if you are running windows 2000 or XP you can use Virtual Daemon Manager and make the iso run like a cd/dvd in a virtual-cd/dvd player.

I use this Virtual Daemon Manager and a made iso of cd that i freq: use on my windowsXP laptop (I replaced the laptop cd/dvd player for a extra powerpack) and it works like a charm.

:wink:

Nero is probally the easyist one. Load up the Nero Burning ROM (not the craptastic menu system that comes with v7), cancel the intial menu, and Recorder -> burn image. Select the iso file, okay it, and insert a blank CD. Done/.

Usefully but not very useful for installing Linux distros. You do need to burn those.

i have no idea how to use ISO's so i was wondering if you could tell me how to use them. pls? i want to know how to use them because i have downloaded a Linux ISO but i dont know how to use it.

This should answer a lot of your questions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_image

Basically an ISO file is not just a file you burn normally. It's an exact copy of a disc (almost like a picture of it) and therefore must be burnt in a special way with software that can handle it.

Dunno if that made any sense but hopefully it was a help.

one of the best ways to learn is to dive in head first... I don't know everything about windows but that didn't stop me from burning an live ISO and trying it out... i didn't know anything but I had fun learning and expermenting... and if I did something to screw it up.... restart it's back to normal.... and I think he's smart enough not to delete anything or format anything so he'll be fine...
