LC ISO Creator – Free ISO creation tool

Friday, June 27th, 2008

LC ISO Creator is a freeware tool for creating ISO disk images.

First of all, if you need an explanation of what an ISO image is, well it could be described as something like a zipped archive file that contains all that you have on a CD or DVD, so it’s can come in handy for backing up your CD/DVD media. You can find a more detailed explanation here.

It’s basically a single file that is an exact copy of your disc. This can be kept as a backup of the disc. It can also be mounted and ran as a virtual disc using programs such as one I previously reviewed here.

LC ISO Creator downloads as an exe file, and it requires no installation. You just run the file, and it scans your computer for optical drives. Then insert the disc you wish to make an image of, choose the appropriate drive, and choose ‘create iso’. You’ll be asked to choose an output file location to create the newly created ISO. It’s as simple as that really, does one thing simply and does it well!

Think this could be useful for you? You can download it here.

Virtual CloneDrive

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Virtual CloneDrive is a freeware program which lets you mount disc images as if they were discs in your drive. It basically fools your system into believing that there is another CD/DVD drive in your system. On this virtual drive, you can mount disc image files.These are exact copies of a physical disc, but as a single file, usually ISO, BIN and some other formats.

It’s very simple to use as you just have to double click an image file and it will treat it just as if you had double clicked on a real disc in your computer’s drive. It enables you to work with up to 8 virtual drives.

One example of how this could be useful is if you were to make backups of discs (as image files) for use on your laptop when you are on the move, saving you from having to carry around and load and unload a bunch of discs that may get lost or scratched.
