How to Create a Writable ISO Image File


ISO is a virtual-disc format. ISO files are backups of real, physical CDs and DVDs. You can create a writable ISO, that is, one you can then burn to a blank CD to create a physical backup copy. You can do this by using the CD you want to backup as well as a virtual CD program.

  • Download and install Power ISO (see Resources). Insert the CD you want to get an ISO from. Click "Start" and select "My Computer." Right-click on the CD that's listed there. Select "Power ISO" and then click "Make Image" to create a writable ISO.

  • Download and install Daemon Tools Lite (see Resources). Click the "Make Disc Image" button. Insert the CD you want. Select the disc you want from the drop-down at the top. Click "Start" to create the ISO.

  • Download and install Magic ISO Maker (see Resources). Insert the CD you want. Click on the "Tools" menu. Select "Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM." Select the Source drive in the new window, and then click "OK" at the bottom to create the image.
