Virtual DVD burner?


Recommended Posts

I want to burn recovery DVDs from my Acer laptop, but it only has a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive. (I made a set of recovery CDs, 12 of them!)

I'd like to be able to make the DVD set, which takes 3 discs.

If I had a virtual burner I could create ISO image files then copy those to my desktop with DVD burner. It'd have to respond to software eject commands and have a way for the user to "insert" a new, virtual blank disc.

I do have a USB 2.0 to IDE cable but it doesn't work for burning CDs or DVDs because it just quits working when a data transfer has been going for too long. (Gets about halfway through a CD-R then quits.)

It'd be so much easier if Acer had just put DVD and/or CD images on the hard drive where the user can get at them! The recovery stuff is all in a hidden partition a bit less than 10 gigs at the front of the hard drive. That's space I could really use on the 80gig drive.

I second that, I have tested this software and it work.

May I suggest, that you clone your system with a more effecient way ?

Dont clone the paging file and any personnal data or games. Only clone windows and

program files. it should not take more than 2 gig compressed.

You would be able to burn it on a DVD.
