Writing an ISO file to a CD-ROM – with minimum freeware effort

The other day I needed a bootable CD ROM with the GPartEd Live CD to change the disk partition setup of a system. A decent CD ROM software was not installed so I used the ISO Recorder Power Toy (Freeware) to write the ISO image to a CD.

ISO files are actually images of complete CDs compiles as one whole image.

Steps to create a CD after you have installed ISO Recorder Power Toy:

  • Download the ISO CD image to a folder on your computer, open the folder in Windows Explorer
  • If the file does not have an .ISO extension (e.g. .IMG), rename the file to have an .ISO extension
  • Insert a blank CD in your CD-RW drive.
  • Right click the file and click Copy image to CD to open the ISO Recorder Wizard and follow the on-screen instructions
