Renaming CD Name while burning ISO


Darren M

Recommended Posts

I have several ISO files that need to be burned. However, the CD names are specific. I've tried as many ways as I can think of to get this accomplished but Roxio continues to name the CD with some inane numeric naming convention, e.g. 070823_1505. Should the ISO have the Disk name embedded in it?

 

Here's some of the specs. of the situation

WinXP, Creator Classic ver 6.2.0.134.

ISO File Name - VSPROD1

ISO File contents - VS .Net 2005 (thus the need for cd specific names.)

 

Steps taken below all result in the CD being named 0708xx_xxxxxx.

  1. Double Click ISO, no chance of changing the name as Roxio enters "burn" screen immediately.
  2. Open Roxio, change name, File Menu, Record Disc from Image.
  3. As many combinations of 1 and 2 as I could try.

My last ditch effort is going to be burn the ISO, copy out all the data into temp dirs, then burn from traditional "Add files and folders here to create your project."

But I'd rather not.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

 

 

Future search criteria: renaming a cd before burning from ISO rename image.

Once you have a .iso file that's it I'm afraid. There's no provision to rename the disc label (the one that appears in Windows when you put the disc in the drive)

 

There are apps there that can do it, but Roxio suite can't.

 

You could try extracting the iso with winrar (which can open iso files) and make a new iso with Creator and give that a label, or copy the contents of a pre-made disc to a folder on the hard drive - that would be the only way without going to a third party app

Thanks for the response. I elected to go the extract all and burn as a normal "file grab and burn" approach. Not what I wanted to do but it got the job done.

However, since I didn't burn these ISO's the option of naming the CD during the burn intrigues me. Can you confirm that w/ Roxio you can dictate the name of the CD during the ISO creation?

 

Thanks again!

I want to renames some disks. I have some disks that are not ISO and I want to rename them, not necessarily make a copy, although in some cases I do have to make a copy. But even when I make a copy, I do not see an option to rename. Is there a way to change the name of a cd once it has been burned, and is there a way to change th name when I am making a copy.

 

Thanks

Hello Zubie,

 

In general you can't rename a permanently written disc.

 

To rename discs you would need to copy them to your hard drive and then write them to fresh discs with CD Creator [not Copier], changing the disc label in your burn project before you do the actual burn.

 

An exception to this is where you are writing a data disc in sessions. Since a fresh index is written for each session, you can give it a fresh name each time you write a session.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Exactly. If I were there, I'd be ask'n if I could buy you a pint, or two. ;) Thanks!!!!

 

Thanks, I understand that I can't rename them and I understand copying to my HD and creating another disk, but I don't understand creator vs Copier. I am using Toast 8 is creator part of that
