With the move toward smaller lighter laptops, netbooks and Chromebooks the inclusion of an inbuilt DVD-CD drive is becoming increasingly rare. This raises the problem of how the Windows operating system and other computer programs contained on CDs or DVDs can be installed on these devices.
At this month’s meeting of the Tuesday Forum the group’s leader, Tim Kelly, will demonstrate how DVDs and CDs can be made into software “virtual disks” called ISO files and run on “virtual drives” on a computer.
Tim will also show how USB flash drives can be used as a “virtual disks” to store a bootable version of the Windows operating system or other computer programs.
As always the group will look at some interesting websites and free software and have a question and answer session.
The Tuesday Forum will meet on the 1st floor of the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts on Tuesday 21 April at 10 AM.
Visitors are always welcome.
