Read this if you are unsure about the options you can choose from in the following installation windows.

IsoBuster is a powerful utility with many uses.
The two most popular and used functions are :
#1 CD, DVD, BD and HD DVD Data Recovery
#2 Opening (and allowing to extract data from) Image files
Most of the installation options are straightforward but the “Select file associations” window might be a bit confusing. This option exists mainly for the second use of IsoBuster (#2) which is Opening Image files.
Image files are identical copies of CDs, DVDs, BDs or HD DVDs, stored block per block, in regular files which you can keep on a Hard Drive or any other medium. IsoBuster is able to open these files and treat them as a regular optical discs.
The extensions you can select in the “Select file associations” window are extensions of such image files. Image files come in many flavours, created by many different applications. Therefore there are so many different extensions listed in the “Select file associations” window.
Example : a *.ISO file is the most common image file variant out there and is supported by different write applications. If you check (*.ISO) in the “Select file associations” window, after installation, when you double click an .iso file, IsoBuster will automatically start and load the image file and will show you all the files in the image, as if the image file were a CD or DVD.
If your sole use will be Data Recovery from CD, DVD, BD or HD DVD (#1) then there is no need to check these extensions in the “Select file associations” window. However if you want to keep IsoBuster installed on your system, then it makes sense to select them anyway. Next time when you’re confronted with an image file, IsoBuster will be installed and ready to open the image file for you.
Also take advantage of the help file which is installed always.
If you have the program running and you’re unsure of what to do next, hit the “F1” key or click the question mark help button.
If your main reason for installing IsoBuster is Data Recovery from CD, DVD, BD or HD DVD and you have no prior experience with IsoBuster, then here’s the golden tip :
After installation :
– Start IsoBuster,
– Insert the CD, DVD, BD or HD DVD in your drive
– Make sure the drive is selected in IsoBuster
– Let the disc mount,
once mounted you will see the disc layout in IsoBuster (tracks and sessions)
– If files can be found they will be listed automatically as well
– If no files, or not all files, are found right away,
right mouse click the track icon and select “Find missing files and folders”.
Let the scan complete.
Also know that IsoBuster is very much right-mouse-click based. Right click the object (e.g. track, session, file, directory, …) you want to do something with and make a selection.
