I need a copy of bootable CD and a friend of mine from other branch office already share the DVD Rom drive so I can access it through the internet so I can copy the files directly. We're using the same domain and I can access it using windows explorer by typing \[computer name][drive name] but the problem is I don't think if I copy the files directly to other folder the CD copy can be use for booting. I mean I can copy the files perfectly but not working if I want to use it to boot up the laptop.
I was thinking of changing it to iso first then after that the iso file will be burn to CD. I'm sure it can be use for booting but I dunno how to change the files to iso and I don't have any software to create iso file.
Do you have any recommendation for software that capable to create iso through network ?
Iso Creator Software Through Network
Yes. You are right with your theory about iso thing.
A set of DVD files copied and burn in your DVD doesn't mean that your new DVD is bootable. Nope. That is not the case.
The solution here is to make an iso out of that DVD you are trying to copy. I recommend using MagicISO software.
MagicISO software can make an exact copy or an exact duplicate of your DVD and create an iso out of it. This iso can then be distributed over your friends or officemates for further replication or duplication.
Instead of sharing the DVD Rom drive and copy the contents, I recommend to just share the .iso instead if the purpose is for replication. In that way, your friends or officemates doesn't have to copy the whole contents, but instead copy only 1 file — the iso file.
MagicISO also has the capability to let you browse what's inside the iso. It also contain iso extractor, iso converter, iso burner and iso creator. Lots of stuffs for your DVD replication needs.
