I've just been battling for the last 30 minutes to try and burn an ISO as an image to a DVD. I have a version of Nero Burn and tried to line up the planets with this bit of not-so-great software and ended up creating a data DVD with the ISO as the single file on this DVD. I took a second attempt with Nero but just couldn't find the option to create it as an image.
Did I mention that I was burning this DVD image from Windows Server 2003?
I stumbled across this little gem of a utility that I must have installed on this server with the Resource Kit Tools. It's called dvdburn.exe and has a younger brother called cdburn.exe.
DVDBurn.exe takes 3 parameters:
dvdburn <drive> <image> [/Erase]
Worked like a charm:
Media type: DVD-R
Error setting timestamp; this error will be ignored, some drives can work without this
- 100.0% done
Waiting for drive to finalize disc (this may take up to 30 minutes).............
Success: Finalizing media took 10 seconds
