For the most part burning the 5+Gb DVD ISO image of Visual Studio Orcas Beta 1 to DVD is not only a waste of time, it’s also difficult on low end DVD burners. This is where applications that are capable of hosting an ISO image as an additional drive on your computer come in handy. As a bookmark for my future reference two such products (both free) that have recently been recommended to me are:
- MagicISO – (thanks Brian)
- Virtual CloneDrive – (thanks Bill)
Update: Apparently according to Bill Virtual CloneDrive won’t actually work with the Orcas B1 image, but I’ve left the link here as they might fix the issue for future versions.
