17.1 Saving Data Tracks
In addition to the option for saving audio files on an audio CD, Nero Burning ROM enables you to save data files on a disc. The result is an image file that can be burned to a blank disc later on. Using the Save Tracks command in Nero Burning ROM has the following advantages:
Existing files can also be saved in non-standard formats, for example files that are available in the Apple Macintosh HFS format.
If required a copy of multisession CDs can be created. Requirement: The table of contents for the sessions does not contain any cross references to previous sessions (see Multisession Tab).
If you use the Save Tracks command to select formats other than ISO or HFS, such as native Unix file systems, we recommend that you burn the new image file on a blank disc.
To save files from a data disc, proceed as follows:
Insert a data disc into a drive or a burner.
Select Save Tracks from the Extras menu. Æ The Save Tracks window is opened. Basically, the window is identical to the window used for saving audio files (see Save Tracks Window). The Audio player controls area is grayed out. The track list displays the data files found on the disc.
Select the files that you want to save. If you want to save all files, click on the Select All button.
Set the desired options:
Select the desired output format from the Output file format drop-down menu.
If you want to specify a storage location for the image file, click on the Browse button and select a path.
Set other options as required.
Click on the Start button.
Æ The Progress window is opened; a progress bar displays the progress being made by the save process. When the save process is complete, the window closes automatically.
6. Click on Close.
Î You have successfully created an image file starting from a data disc. Now you can burn the image file to a disc (see Burning an image file).
