- Try Alex Feinman's ISO Recorder V3. Although this program didn't work for me when trying to write a DVD from an .ISO file, it did well to create an .ISO file from an existing data DVD.
- Use the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools. The installer will complain when running on Vista, but just accept it and go ahead. It will install a few programs in \Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools. Open a command prompt there and run "dvdburn [drive] [.ISO file]" to burn that DVD.
And how do you quickly open a command prompt on a folder? On Windows XP you can use a PowerToy for this, but on Windows Vista you use a shortcut: press shift and right click on a folder name, and "Open Command Window Here" will be shown in the menu - this option is not visible otherwise.
Another tip? If you are using Microsoft Outlook 2007, press control and right-click the Outlook icon in the system tray. This will show a couple of aditional menu items, including an option to show connection status - handy if you are using a Microsoft Exchange Server and need to know if Outlook is connected at all, and what transport is being used.
