GameRager: Why? The builtin dvd burner in windows works just fine when burning installer files and random folders of files.

eyeball226: I don't think the built in burner can verify the burn can it? Lots of proper burning software can, and ImgBurn is free and awesome.
Burn with builtin burner and verify if needed with third party tool....simple, no?

Heck even use chkdsk and scan the newly created disc.

If you're going to use a third party tool at all, why not do the whole thing in one go with imgburn?

I'm pretty sure you can't verify burns with chkdsk... verification involves comparing it with the image file.

If it's an image file ok, but I thought he meant he had an exe installer. I just brun those using windows burn utility and then run the exe on the disc to see if it starts.

Why clutter up your pc with a bunch of utilities and crap anyways? I tend to try to consolidate the programs I use to a small number to keep conflicts and disk space usage down.....and keep the desktop/start menu neat and clean. :)

Its not cluttering the system that much. :) I use ImgBurn to make images out of discs, and to make images from files. It works just fine. It also has a huge amount of features and options you can tweak. Its also a very well done technically, not like most crap software out there.
The only reason I went for third party burning software was that, at one time, Windows XP burning feature conked out on me and would no longer work. It might do now that I've installed to a new drive but Ashampoo was working so champ that I just installed it again.

No matter what kind of file you're burning, an image is made and then that is burned. Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Well, ImgBurn is only one program and it's the only one I use for burning... I'd hardly call that clutter. :P

I'm minimalist so if I can get a windows utility to do something I usually refrain from getting another program to do the same thing for me unless it's some unusual circumstance....like if said app also makes toaster pastries appear on my desk promptly at 6 a.m. each morning, along with the local paper. :)
