By on May 22nd, 2008

We have talked about how to open ISO files and also a easy way to mount a ISO file as a virtual CD / DVD drive, but what if you simply burn a ISO file to a CD / DVD? Would you go and buy a costly software like Nero, which has become more of a entertainment package and less of a CD / DVD burning software or would you just wait for some free software to come by and help you burn your ISO file to a CD / DVD?

If you are waiting for the latter to happen you shall have to not wait any longer. Active@ ISO Burner is a free software that allows you burn those ISO files to a CD or DVD.

The software works more like the regular CD / DVD burning softwares except that it specializes in helping you burn ISO files to a CD / DVD.

Active@ ISO Burner is a freeware application that will allow you to burn an ISO image file to CD-R, DVD-R, DVD+R, CD-RW, DVD-RW, DL DVD+RW, HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

How can you burn a ISO file to a CD / DVD?

  • Download the ISO CD image to a folder on your computer.
  • Insert a blank CD in your CD-RW drive.
  • Run Active@ ISO Burner.
  • Type the path to ISO image file or click Browse button to locate it via standard File Open dialog.
  • Click the [BURN ISO!] button to start the process of writing ISO image to CD.


That’s it, it couldn’t get any simpler than that.

What other options does Active@ ISO Burner provide you with?


Active@ ISO Burner also provides you with options such as

  • Finalize Media – after burning is complete performs media finalizing (takes some time)
  • Perform BURN-Proof - sets the status of BURN-Proof (Buffer Under RuN error Proof) flag which helps in protection from BURN error
  • Perform OPC - sets the status of flag for performing OPC, before burning.
  • Default rewritable media erase – if media type is re-writable (CD-RW, DVD-RW, etc.) checking this option will automatically erase media every time before burning starts. If turned off – dialog pops up asking to confirm erase action. Erasing takes some time
  • Default Max write speed – if turned on – burner has been set up to use maximum writing speed. If turned off – one step below maximum
  • Cache Buffer Size – size of the cache buffer in megabytes. Gives a basic level of Buffer Under RuN Error Protection using software buffers. The data, to be burnt, is kept in the system RAM, before it is burnt to the disc.
