Why to get expensive S/W for writing a CD/DVD

Last time when I had a hard time writing an ISO to a CD, I found two good resource kit utility (CLU); CDBURM.exe and DVDburn.exe. These are again two great tool (freely available) to burn ISO images to CD directly.

Here is the command line syntax to use the tools:


The cdburn.exe and dvdburn.exe Resource Kit utilities. (07-Apr-06)The cdburn.exe and dvdburn.exe Windows XP and Windows Server Resource Kit utilities will burn an ISO image to writeable media.

When you type cdburn /?, you receive:Usage:

cdburn -erase [image [options]]
cdburn image [options]

Options:

-erase Erases the disk before burning (valid for R/W only)
-sao Writes the image out in "session at once", or cue
sheet, mode (default is "track at once")
-speed Speed of burn, or 'max' for maximum speed
-imagehaspostgap Use if your image already contains a 150 sector postgap
The [image] must be provided unless the -erase flag is set.
If both an image and -erase are provided, the media will be
erased prior to burn…
