ISO Workshop is mainly intended to create and burn disc image files (ISO). The program has a straightforward interface with a neat layout. Therefore, it is unlikely to pose any difficulty. Various types of discs are supported, including CD, DVD, and BD. Luckily, the software can even create bootable discs.

After picking a disc type, you should add the desired contents. It is great that this can be done by simply dragging the items and dropping them onto the program’s interface. Once they have been imported, you are allowed to check various properties, such as name, size, type and modification date. Additionally, in the case of media discs, the software can transcode the files to compatible formats. Then, you are ready to either save the compilation or send it directly to the disc burner.

ISO Workshop also lets you burn existing images. In such case, you only need to pick the source file and choose a destination drive. Other options include finalizing and ejecting the disc when burning has been completed. The tool also lets you convert between disc image formats. In this respect, such extensions as BIN, NRG, CDI, MDF, IMG, GI, PDI, DMG, B5I, and B6I.

In general, ISO Workshop has most of the basic features required to compile your own discs. It is quite stable and has a low demand on hardware resources. However, it does not support creating disc menus. Also, while being tried, the tool did not stop a conversion when I pressed the corresponding button. The product has a free version but you can also purchase more features.
