    CloneDVD does ISO images, if that's what you're looking for :)

    Perhaps tommarnk is trying to edit the ISO with another program and may not have CloneDVD. I have both, so im not complaining, but this is probably why they want the ISO from the ripper and not CloneDVD.

    If you don't want to pay for CloneDVD, then rip to the hard drive and use IMGBurn build mode to create an ISO.

    Or use CloneCD. ;)

    CloneCD doesn't create an ISO, though, does it? It does create an image, yes, but, it's not ISO I thought.

    you can copy the dvd using nero with anydvd running and have nero create an image. i think its a .nrg (im not sure if it makes isos or not. if so i would guess you can also have it make one of those)

    edit: aha!!
    i found how to have nero make isos.

    In nero go file -> options -> expert features and check "enable all supported recorder formats for the image recorder", this alows you to burn to ISO as well as NRG format.

    It does, if you know how. ;)
    Just manually specify a file with the name .iso, and it will create an .iso file.

    Thanks for this tip, James. I just wish I knew this a long time ago.

    He could just use ImgBurn to create an ISO directly from the disc :D

    Yes, I know, I do it all the time. But, by ripping it to the hard drive first he has the chance to edit the content and remove stuff he doesn't necessarily want.

    I get your point, i also do this all the time but sometimes i also edit the ISO directly.

    I guess the OP will work it out eventually, as we all had to at some time :D

    If your going to rip to HD first using AnyDVD ripper, just use Shrink to create your ISO. There are also MANY movies that shrink will just rip to ISO directly from disc with AnyDVD running.

    I was reviewing this thread regarding ISO files.

    My question is - How are these files useful? What are the benefits of having them?

    I created an NRG with Nero, and I want to create the more widely compatible ISO file instead.

    Can I play this ISO directly from the Hard Disk Drive (HDD)?
    If so, does Nero, WMP, Quicktime or any Adobe/Macromedia applications play them from the HDD in the ISO format?

    I know I can use them to burn to a disc, but I can do that with the regualr files . . . right?
    Well, maybe not HD DVD's and Blue-ray . . . ?

    I noticed TDK's HD DVD recordable is now only $9.50. How much is the damn burner? My online movie service ships HD and BR. Is it cost effective yet? not to mention the time spent on the entire process. I don't even burn my regular DVD's anymore. In fact, I just started investing in 500GB SATA HDD's, and I am ripping them to my HDD's to later insert into my Netgear SC101T. (movie only in most cases. I watch the extras once in a blue moon. I need the space.)

    I am curious if backing up my movies onto my HDD's in ISO is more functional than the VIDEO_TS folders. My concern is data corruption. What if one or two files in the VIDEO_TS folder become corrupt? I can identify which one by playing each one individually; fast forwarding to see if it freezes. Delete it, and replace it from the original disc. That's one way of doing it.

    ISO - I would have to rip the entire movie to the HDD; strip it with CloneDVD (Movie only), and recreate the ISO.

    These are my thoughts on these two methods, and that is why I am curious about the ISO. Any advice on the best way to manage an ISO movie library would be helpful.

    This method applies to HD DVD's and Blue-ray as well. That NRG file I mentioned earlier, is Full Metal Jacket (HD DVD). 30 GB's. Wow! Is there a way to slim it down to Movie Only?

    Thanks, and hopefully my advice was useful for someone new to the Movie Storage era.

    I'm not about to tackle all the issues brought up on your post. :) However, I can tell you this much. ISO is convenient for many reasons. Being one file, you can move it wherever you want on your network rather easily. With Daemon Tools, Virtual CloneDrive, or Nero image tool you can mount the ISO as a virtual drive on your machine...even over a network share if your network is fast enough. Your player software will see it as though you stuck the original in the DVD drive. Nero, ImgBurn, CloneDVD, and many others will all make ISO images. (Yes, even Nero if you know what you're doing will make an actual ISO). Only you can determine if that's easier to maintain than a gazillion directories on your hard drive. With FastMount and Daemon Tools you can literally just double click the ISO you want and have it pop open in your player in seconds. That seems nice. :)

    P.S. One more word about ISO creation. If you want to remove crap from the image, my HIGHEST recommendation is to use CloneDVD in dual layer mode. It can output to ISO automagically without you having to do anything and it will work right from the original disc. So, really, it's not a problem to create scaled down ISOs with zero quality loss.

    you can also mount that .nrg that you created the same way in most virtual drives (virtual clonedrive, nero image drive, alcohol 120, daemon tools, etc)
