Ask a question
Using Nero 10 to burn a CD or DVD image (ISO), you get many options for burning in the tabs at the top. First, select Backup, then you should view the copy and recover data options. Click on copy disc. The main window closes and there are 3 options - copy entire CD, copy entire DVD, and finally, disc image. You may need the disk image now. You should be able to write to a .nrg or .iso file through Nero's image burner. Now make an ISO disc by selecting the Image Recorder, start disc copier, configure all settings, as you are prompted for image location and change it to ISO Image File. For protected discs, burning is not possible thanks to protection mechanisms. Install software to bypass the protections.
