making DVDs from .img "image" files


chas2003

Recommended Posts

I have Easy CD Creator 5.3.5.10a I have a .img file which is an image for an entire DVD. I could put in on a DVD as a file but I can not figure out how to create a DVD FROM the .img file. The "help" here said that version 5 does not support DVDs at all but at least for 5.3.5.10a that is false as it does have DVD type products.

Any ideas how to get Easy CD creator to do it? Or know of any freeware to do it?

Thanks,

Chas

Been ages since I've used v5 but you can change the extension to .iso and burn to DVD. Not sure if v5 can burn an .img file. I'm sure someone with more knowledge will stop by to help.

Did find this that might help.

 

Burning ISO Images

 

Using Roxio Easy CD Creator® 5.x

 

Roxio Easy CD Creator provides support for burning ISO images using the 'Record CD from CD Image' feature.

 

1. Start the 'Record CD from CD Image' feature.

From Easy CD Creator's File menu, select Record CD from CD Image.

 

2. Open the ISO image.

In the file open dialog which appears, select the ISO file you downloaded. Click Open.

 

Note: You may need to select 'ISO Image Files (*.iso)' in the file type combo-box to see the ISO files on your computer.

 

3. Write the CD.

Easy CD Creator's 'Record CD Setup' dialog will appear. Click Start Recording to create the CD.

 

The above instructions will create a CD using the default options. If you need to customize the CD writing options, please consult Easy CD Creator's documen

To add to what was already said, any DVD capability in 5 (as well as 6) was only for data files and never for movies.

 

However, as Brendon pointed out, different programs use the .img extension, but not all are compatible. To convert these to .iso would require an external program such as Ultraiso or Poweriso

What I think gi7omy meant to say, and he can correct me if I'm mistaken! DVD capability in 5 was only for data files and Version 6

was the first version for DVD authoring video "movie".

I think we have to be really specific here.

 

I had Movie Creator 5 which is VideoWave 5 and that had the ability to burn DVDs. ( In fact, that's the main reason I bought it.) And VW 5 was included in one of the ECDC 5 packages.

 

However, I'm not that familiar with the different versions of ECDC 5 to know which one was capable of making movie DVDs and which was wasn't.

 

Now I did a search of the net and in the Microsoft forums, someone claimed that all you have to do is change the file extension from .img to .iso. http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost....56&SiteID=1

 

For free programs to burn the file, try www.videohelp.com.

I thought I explained that in the post above. I will try and make it clearer, because I actually used both versions and two version before. They were Roxio's top of the line Platinum editions!

Version 5 Platinum one could burn Video_ts and Vob folders as data, not a DVD authoring software. It did have mpeg 1 VCD authoring.

 

Again, correct me if I'm mistaken!

Wow look at all the replies. Active group here. Thanks everybody. It was a sample program distribution from Microsoft for Visual Studio 2005. Ultraiso did the whole trick. Thanks again,

Chas
