I have Toshiba's Disk Creator which allows "Burn ISO" or "Image to Disk".  There is no option I could find for doing this as "leave open" or "multisession".  How can such ISO live disk be made as multisession?

I am not familiar with Toshiba's disc creator but to make a disc 'multi-session' it is important that you don't 'close' it as the final part of the burn process. Look for an option that says 'Close disc at end ?' or any wording that includes 'close ?'.


If you can't find any such option then you could consider installing a different burner. You can find a number on the web. Just be careful who you download it from and always use the 'Custom install' method. This allows to dodge most of the bundled software that is attached to such downloads.

I found a post on a forum that says Toshiba Disk Creator "seems to be missing multisession."

Assuming you're using Windows XP, I recommend freeisoburner. That's what I used to use before I started using Linux. I have just downloaded the file from the link on their website to check it out, as it's been a while since I've done so, but it still looks just fine to me.

The download is a single file called FreeISOBurner.exe and is 705,024 bytes in size and 708,608 bytes on disk. I also uploaded it to VirusTotal just to be really sure, and it didn't find any problems with it.

It doesn't come bundled with anything, and is simple enough that it doesn't even need to be installed. Just download the file, click on it, and the application opens.
