Windows 7 Disk Image Burner

    General discussion

  • I just used Windows Disk Image Burner to burn an ISO file to a DVD disk. It worked great and was fairly quick for a 4 GB file. I've always had to use a third party software to burn these or use a trial since I don't do this often. Finally a Windows OS with some great features built in! Great addition MS! Thanks.

  • Wow thanks for pointing this feature out! The more I use Win7 the more I'm liking it!

  • Where do I find this Disk Image Burner feature?

  • Just double click on a .iso image file in your files and it will pop right up unless you have another program installed that is default for that file extension. I havn't seen it in the start menu or by doing a search. Very handy tool!

  • It's a wonderful feature but MS needs it to work in both directions:  wheres my right-click "make ISO from this Disk" option?

    ISO is just an invaluable format in the age of virtual machines, and it's amazing to me that full support still isn't present.

    Until then this is a brilliant little tool:  The funny part being the entire "program" is <800KB so clearly nothing fancy is going on; It's merely calling features already present in the OS.

  • What to do when Burn Disc Image does not appear?

    I recently found that after right clicking on an ISO the Burn Disc Image menu selection did not appear. This will happen after installing a 3rd party program that has associated itself with ISO files. This makes another program the default program for handling .iso files.

    To fix this you have to reassociate Windows Disc Image Burner with the default file types it can handle, which are .img and .iso files. Here is how to do it: click the start button, control panel, programs, set your default programs, select Windows Disc Image Burner in the left hand column, and click Set this program as default. You can also verify which programs will open with Windows Disc Image Burner by clicking Choose Defaults for this program. The types .img and .iso should be checked.

    Handling default programs and associating file types with them is much easier in Windows 7.

  • I know I've seen this defaul programs feature but I can't find it now.  Are you saying Control Panel/Programs and Features???  I don't see anything about default programs in there, unless I'm over looking it somehow.

  • Ok, I found it.  When in large icons view it's directly under the control panel.  When in category view it's under the "Programs" catagory.

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  Not sure how I dis-associated Windows Disc Image Burner with ISO files, but I needed it and it wasn't showing.  This entry was the ONLY one I could find that helped me repair it.  Thanks TRB!
