Copy .iso files straight to Optical disk?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I don't want to burn it, just copy. It doesn't seem to work, the thing is 5 gig & it pops right over no dialog. No way it can copy in a instant.

"Burning" is the process of copying files onto an optical disk, as you "burn" the information into it with a Laser in your CD/DVD drive.

you have to burn it into the CD, either as a .iso file, or extracted

 

you cant magically store information on it without burning it on

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Ok lets get some things straight.

You have an ISO file thats about 5GB?

You want to BURN it onto an optical disk, guessing DVD?

But you dont want to have it mounted as ISO but just the file on the disk?


Just use the windows file explorer to drag the ISO file onto an empty disk and then burn it.

 


When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

It pops right over in an instant, because it's not actually writing it to the disk, but putting it in a queue to be written. The writing process (also known as burning) is started manually after you put all the files you want in the queue. It's done this way because optical drives are not nearly as dynamic as other media and usually get finalized (a permanent read-only mode) after burning, so you wanna assemble everything together before touching the actual disk
