I just noticed this today. If you have any ISO files and don't have an application associated with them, Windows 7 will burn them for you. I hate to start a new topic for this but I figured it was worth mentioning and I didn't know where else to put it.

About time too! I too have always hated the fact that I've had to have a 3rd party app. to burn such a widely used format. I mean even MS use iso files!

Thanks for posting this, I hadn't noticed it either.

Did anyone manage to burn something with that tool?
When I had 6801 installed I tried to burn 3 different
ISOs with it, but it did not work for me...

I burnt an ISO that was about 600MB in size. It's kinda tricky, you need to have a disc in the drive and wait for it to recognize the disc before you press burn, otherwise it just ejects the drive.

Burning ISO's in Windows is a nice feature I'd admit. But like the other CD and DVD burning features, they are basic. Excellent for home users, but as always, you would have to use a more powerful CD burning software to get more advanced burning features.

It's an improvement nonetheless. One thing I would like to see built into Windows is mounting ISO's. I know Windows 7 can mount VHDs (where I need to hunt down)

Is this only the option to *burn* them or can you mount them as additional drive or browse them like Zip-"compressed folders" ?

By looking at it, I believe just burning them. I haven't seen an option to view content or mount.

Go into Disk Management (win+r and type diskmgmt.msc) and it is under the action menu.

You could burn (and create) iso's in Vista and Xp with the IsoRecorder powertoy. Still intergration is always nice.

How??
I heard bout that time ago, but I've always wondered how. That'd be TRULY awesome.

BTW, It's not useful to have a burning tool if you need to edit or preview the ISO. I'd love MS to integrate the whole tool!

How? Bootcfg might be able to help you, I have not really tried it out yet.

I'd imagine it uses Hyper-V.

Why not just give it a shot, and let us know. Don't try, don't find out. :)

Isn't that illegal?

Any way- I burned like 4 DVDs and not one of them works. I tried it using XP's NEro, and it was perfecto first time.

Yeh, but as someone mentioned earlier, it's likely to be based on Hyper-V, so expect similar restrictions, such as only on x64 and requires Hardware-assisted virtualisation support..
So you'll need a slightly better system than what most people probably run.

Still, got a Core 2 E6xxx or E8xxx? You're good to go :)
AMD Processors will be similar in that it'll be their AM2 dual-cores that are required.
