EasyDD now handles ISO files

February 15, 2020 — BarryK

EasyDD is a great little application to write an image file to a USB-stick. Here is information about how to use EasyDD:

EasyDD can handle uncompressed image file, with extension ".img", or compressed image ".img.gz", ".img.bz2", ".img.xz", or ".zip".

Now we can add ".iso". This is for a hybrid-ISO, that can be written to a USB-stick. EasyDD does not write to optical media -- for that you need 'burniso2cd' or 'pburn' -- see "Multimedia" menu.

If the 'isolyzer' utility exists, EasyDD will do a file-size check, to catch the situation where the downloaded ISO got stopped before the full file was downloaded. Not as good as a hash|checksum, but a basic integrity test.

isolyzer was posted about yesterday:

The improved EasyDD can be downloaded from here:

The improved EasyDD and isolyzer will be in the next release of EasyOS and EasyPup.
