Creating an "install" CD from an ISO file



Ron Hirsch
07-09-2005, 11:52 PM
I have a large ISO file on my hard drive that is an image of a CD which
(presumably) contains files for a program that the CD could install, much as
any program installation CD. I've been instructed to "properly" burn this
image onto a CD, using a program such as Roxio's Easy Media Creator 7, and
when properly burned onto the CD, the files within this ISO file will be
extracted onto the CD, and it can then be used to install the program which
it was designed for.

But, I cannot find the path in Easy Media Creator 7 to do this. Nor can I
find any usable info for Windows XP, where this task can be handled by my XP
operating system.

I've never worked with ISO files before, so I'm not familiar with the
protocols involved in doing this. I've extracted ZIP and CAB files in the
past, but the ISO situation has me in the dark.

I really don't want to have to purchase a program to do ths task, as I
probably won't need this capability much, if at all, in the future.

And, even though they offer a free trial, I don't really want to install and
then uninstall the program, as most programs leave lots of trash and
unneeded files around all over the place, as well as entries in the
Registry.

Is there no other solution in Easy Media Creator 7?

Easy Media Creator 7 should be able to burn ISO to CD, check the
documentation.

There are also a lot of freeware solutions:

Kurt,

That's the reply I was seeking. I just couldn't find the route to it in
CREATOR.

Thanks for the help - the task is done.
