Working with optical discs is still a big part of computing. Despite recent trends to go completely digital, using CD’s and DVD’s is still a reliable way to store, share and transport data from one computer, one person to another. This is one of the reasons why I am really thankful for apps like ISO Workshop. It’s a disc imaging utility for Windows.
ISO Workshop is specifically designed for disc image management, conversion and burning. The app has a very simple user interface and enables you to make ISO images, extract specific files and folders from disc images. You can create disc backups by copying items to an ISO or BIN image file, convert different disc image files into ISO or BIN formats. You can also burn standard and bootable ISO images as well as CUE images to blank discs.
The application is pretty cool. It supports ISO, CUE, and BIN files as well as others. It also supports CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD+R DL, and BD-R/RE disk formats; and will verify all images written to discs.
ISO Workshop is one of those applications that you really want to have in your PC’s toolbox. Its easy to use, works with a number of different image formats as well as disc types. If you don’t have a tool like this, this is one that you really need to take a hard look at ISO Workshop. The price is right and it does a great job of giving you the basics.
