    1. CD image files are easily created with UltraISO. Duplicate discs to a CD image, create bootable CDs and audio CD images - and UltraISO also handles DVD image files. If you need to know how to make a CD image or need to edit an ISO image file, UltraISO is the tool you need.
      UltraISO vs Isobuster opinions
      This alternative is disputed. UltraISO is still a legitimate alternative to Isobuster, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      UltraISO exclusively works on disc images and their contents. Its operation is only guaranteed when the health of the disc image is ensured. ISOBuster, on the other hand, is designed to work physical media when health of those media are definitely compromised.
