I am confronted with the ugly job to create recovery discs from a laptop without an optical drive.
Well, I could simply grab one of my external writers, throw in some quality blanks and go ahead. The problem is: These "Create Recovery Disc" applications don't have any options to control the burn parameters. They will always attempt a maximum speed burn. And such is not good at all with a modern USB connected DVD writer which will try 20x with TY or MCC media and is strangulated by the USB interface.
I could avoid this dilemma if there existed a piece of software that installs itself as DVD writer which then creates (ISO) image files instead of coastering blank disks. These ISO images can then be written to disc under controlled parameters.
Anyone aware of such a software? I forgot to mention, it must support Win7 64-bit.
Free solutions are preferred, commercial software should have at least a fully functional, (time limited) trial.
Thanks in advance,
