    Hi there

    @RolandJS

    simply use the dropdown -- you've got two values --physical DVD drive prompt or create iso image !!!!!!!
    Not intuitive so I'm sure I wasn't the only person who missed it first time around.

    Q.E.D !!!!!! (not Quod erat Demonstrandum - but Quite Easily Done !!).

    Blimey, I have not heard that QED joke for years. I first heard it over 40 years ago from my Latin teacher! I am impressed you know this as English is not your first language, and even most Envlish speakers probably have never heard it - LOL.

    Hi there .
    @cereberus
    went to an old Jesuit Catholic school -- lot of Latin around in those days --actually the education I got was First class -- got me into Manchester Uni and also PhD at Imperial College Kensington U.K -- not sure if anywhere in the world these days if Schools are anything like as good -- I know there's modern technology but somehow something has been lost --if technology fails I doubt if most young ones today would have any idea of how to go back to basics -- i.e Read a map when Sat nav fails etc.

    A guy recently was having problem adding a person from one photo against backdrop of another. I suggested he printed both photos, used scissors to cut person and glue to other (and rescan) and he replied I am trying to "cut and paste". I replied - where do you think term "cut and paste" came from - LOL!

    Hell, I could even still use my slide rule if I had to!
