Downloading and Installing IsoBuster

This section provides a tutorial on how to download and install IsoBuster.

IsoBuster is definitely a good tool to help you understand the physical and logical structure of different types of CDs. Here is how I downloaded and installed the free version of IsoBuster 2.2.

1. Go to http://www.isobuster.com/isobusterdownload.php.

2. Click the download link. Save the download file to C:\temp\isobuster_all_lang.exe with 2,840,072 bytes.

3. Double click on C:\temp\isobuster_all_lang.exe. Follow the installation screen to finish the installation with default settings.

4. Click Start > All Programs > Smart Projects > IsoBuster > IsoBuster. IsoBuster starts with an empty window since there is no CD in the CD drive.

5. Click menu Help > About. A nice looking IsoBuster logo shows up.
