Just installed InfraRecorder v. Have very little experience with burning CD-Rs...

I just downloaded two files from the Internet: one is an .iso format and the other an .exe. I would like to store both of them on the same CD-R. From what little I understand about this process, I first would have to burn the .iso file that I downloaded somewhere (into a folder of my HD, I guess), add the .exe file to it, and then create a new .iso file that includes everything. After that, I would burn this new .iso file to my CD-R.

1) Is what I have indicated above correct?
2) If so, can I create the new .iso file using InfraRecorder or do I need some other utility?
3) There is no harm in burning an .iso file to a hard drive, right? I mean, I would burn the .iso file in a folder created expressly for that task and then delete it once I am finished. (For sure I would not burn it to c:\ !!)

This is all new to me, so I hope the experts here can guide me...

If all you want to do is store the 2 files on a CD, and their combined size doesn't exceed 700MB, then all you have to do, is burn them to the CD.
No extra steps required. :thumbsup:

I believe that you are trying to add the .exe file onto the cd burned from the iso image correct? As a time saver, I'd recommend using an archive program like 7-zip or winrar to extract the .iso to a folder then add your .exe where you want it that folder. If the disk isn't going to be bootable, just burn the folder you extracted and added the exe to. If it is going to be bootable, I would recommend using the build mode in imgburn. Hope that helps a bit.

In case that wasn't clear, once you've installed 7-zip or winrar, you can right click on the .iso file and from the winrar/7-zip menu extract the data on it to a folder. Then add the exe like I mentioned.
