I’ve started to use more and more ISO images as disk space is becoming cheaper and its a lot easier to manage ISO files compared to physical CDs/DVDs. Mainly because I keep forgetting where I put the physical media.
Create an ISO file using dd
download the x files i want to believe dd if=/dev/cdrom of=image.iso
mkdir /mnt/disk mount -o loop image.iso /mnt/disk
For Windows you should get a copy of the free program MagicDisk
I use it all the time at work and I’ve never had any problems with it. Its small simply and works well.
