How to Make an ISO File from CD/DVD?

ISO file format is one of the popular disk image file formats we use to copy data from CDs or DVDs into. It is the most preferred image format to migrate data from one disk to another.

Data like images, music and videos need not to be stored in ISO format but data like software and operating system are. We should not just copy down all the files from a OS DVD and save them some where on computer to make another copy of it. All the files once copied might get corrupted and may not work properly after writing them down on to a new disk.

An image format file will make a package of entire DVD data along with the format. An image file can be virtually mounted on to the drive and can be used as if a CD/DVD is inserted.

Note: If you are new to this process, keep the points mentioned above in mind for future.

To make an ISO file, we need a ISO maker software. PowerISO is preferably the best software to serve this purpose among the others.

Step 1: Download and install PowerISO on your computer.

Step 2: Insert the CD/DVD that you want you make a copy (in image format) of.

Step 3: Run PowerISO, go to Tools and click Make CD/DVD/Blue-Ray image file.

Step 4: Select the source drive (if you have multiple DVD drives on your computer). Choose Destination file as ISO file, select the save location and click Ok to start making the image file.

Step 5: Sit back. Grab a coffee till the process completes. That’s it!
