 Share

Question

I am great with computers but not too good with "creative" software and its "terminology" etc.

 

A friend send me a PC compatible ISO file and told me to burn it to a disc as disc image. Does this make sense?

 

I have no idea how to do this. I tried the burn disc image option and i burned the disc...but for some reason I cant find any contents on the disc after its burned. I dont think Im doing this right.

 

Can someone please provide help on how to burn iso as disc image and also how to proceed and VIEW the images?

What is supposed to be on the disc after you burn it? Data, a movie or what? Did you use Copy & Convert to burn the iso file to a disc?

Get your .iso image on your pc (if it not there already) by copying the file to your hard drive. If its a movie, try right-clicking on the image in your harddrive, and choose the option burn with creator classic. Put a blank dvd in your dvd burner & burn it that way.

My iso is on my desktop. Should I move it to the c: drive?

 

Do i do File: Copy: Burn Disc Image to Disc?

 

I need serious handholding (step by step instructions) on this one. I'm a mess. Sorry to be such an amateur with this.

It can stay on your desktop as long as you can navigate to it....

 

Right clicking your .iso should bring up screen like this:

Then choose burn disc to image, bringing up this screen:

Click the copy button, lower right, when your blank dvd is in.

Did you try viewing it in Cineplayer?

 

 

Nope. I have no idea what programs to use or where to view any of the contents on the disc.

Explore the suite!

 

Go to Videos, bringing up this screen:

Choose the Cineplayer option, bringing up this program, which you can use to watch dvds (and hopefully your slideshow!):

How large is the ISO file that is on your desktop? How did your friend send you the file?

 

Download and open that file that is on your desktop in VLC (free player). If that doesn't play it, then the file is bad or there is another problem.

 

Why would someone send you an ISO (link) of only images? Normally, an ISO file is a direct image of what is on a disc such as a video or software. There is no compression so why didn't your friend just send you the images? I'm not saying it can't be done but it is unusual for just images.

Was emc pre-installed on your pc or did you buy it stand alone?

 

Does your drive recognize any DVD you place in it? Is the DVD you burned the only one that it does not recognize?

 

You keep talking about DVD, Cineplayer, etc. We don't even know what is in the iso file. The OP said they were just images which seems to indicate simply photo files. Unless we get some information of what is in the iso file we are just guessing.

You're right, we need more info., but that last questions that I asked which you highlighted were there to elicit certain info: I asked if it was a preinstalled program to explore a possible clean install regarding the runtime error, and the question about other dvds was to see if the drive recognizes anything at all and whether the op needs to rectify that as an issue....

They sent me a cdr file from their mac. They said they had converted the file to make it PC friendly. I was told to change the file extension to .iso and burn it that way but ive had no luck thus far. = (

 

Im going to try a few of the suggestions on the forum but Im sure ill be back with more problems. = (

ok. nothing works that i have tried. How frustrating. The file that was sent to me was from a Mac and its extension was .cdr. I was told it was 2 GB of pictures so i should change cdr to iso and burn it. But when I do that, and then try to "view" contents on the disc, nothing appears. Does anyone have a solution?

18 post's into the thread you finally tell folks what you have for a ISO file, talk about frustrating.

gEEZ...NO NEED TO BE "THAT" GUY..... I did initially state that in thread #1 that I am not up on creative software terminology, so in essence I didnt think stating its original file extension was important. What i thought WAS important was stating i had an iso file i was trying to burn. Anyhow, thanks for your response.

You cannot simply change the cdr extension of a file from a Mac to iso and expect to burn it to a DVD or CD :blink:

Nothing wrong with what cdanteek said! You are the one controlling the information, and why you didn't think that producing that .iso file, on a MAC, was important, when you are posting in a PC forum, is way beyond me. :blink::blink::blink::blink::blink:

And it clearly states in both my headliner and 1st post of what I was asking help for. Headliner states MAC cdr and 1st message posted states I needed help with iso file.
