The Isobuster support page? Here's a link from which you can click on "support" on the left side. There are some issues discussed about registration and such:

Hope this helps.

i am really not good with this kind of stuff.. cds and crap. im desprate for online help. im not asking a question that would be in the help files, ive read the support, ive read the help files with the program. i am frustrated trying to save these files. ive tried making it into an .iso file by clicking extract to .bin a few others.. it saved something as a .cue... i burned a few of these files that it keeps saving to but i get nothing but that file on a cd, wow. i know an iso file would actually show all the cd files on a cd after burning but i cannot save it as iso. i cannot extract anything in the folder, because it says i need to register PRO version i think it means? i have no money for this after buying a new computer. Please help me with this, or any other way. i am desprate!
Please reply

What version are you using?

I had that exact same problem when I upgraded to XP. I didn't know but it says on the isobuster website that you need pro to extract udf file format, that's what directcd is. Here is what I did when I first moved to XP and had your problem. I found a pc that had Windows 98 or ME on it and had directcd then look at it in windows explorer then when ejecting it will give you the option or leaving the cd as is or formatting it to be read by any cd player. Pick the latter and you might be able to see it in XP. Or if that doesn't work copy all the files on that cd to the 98 computer then burn them to cd with something other then directcd. That is what I actually did, I copied them all to my son's dual boot 98/XP machine when it was booted to 98 then booted to XP and burned them through there. Do you have access to an older computer? I don't know if it would be worth the $26 to buy isobuster, it's a good program but you would probably use it once and never have a use for it again.

It's called UDF Volume Reader, it's made just for people like you, and it's free. You can download it here, go to the very bottom of the page

of isobuster which version was it? I have version 1.5 maybe I can show you how to run it if you have the same version. I don't know what other versions are like. Click on my name and email me your email address.

Or better yet....

Download a free trial of WinOnCd 5 it has Directcd in it. You could install it and see if that would work.

Tallon, Just A Suggestion...

Purchase the Roxio Creator 6 or 7 program. If you watch for sales, you can get it very cheap or even free. (I recently saw some ads at some local stores for a FREE Creator 7 version after discounts and rebates.)

It should solve all your problems.
