Thanks DzejPy. The interface seems clunky, but if it allows modifying bootable ISOs, it could be a winner! I've been looking for a suitable replacement for ImgBurn ever since they added OpenCandy bundleware. This might be it!

Windows10 Defender picks up anyburn.exe (64bit) as containing a virus, virustotal marks it clean for all other scanners. Malwarebytes scan (of folder) found no problem. Appears to be a false positive. Put in exception, have had no problems.

V. 4.2 scan: 65 engines report OK, but Bkav finds W64.HfsAdware.D281 and Microsoft finds PUA:Win32/InstallCore. False positives?

Optical Info v1.04

webfork on 15 Oct 2017

Optical Info detects and displays the read/write capabilities of any CD/DVD drive. This is useful because such drives don't often display their capabilities in the front panel, or the information may be blocked by the PC casing. The utility allows you to select a CD/DVD drive by drive letter for analysis.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch optinfo.exe.

I prefer "Nero Info Tool" instead because it displays more precise information about read/write modi of your cd/dvd burner, e.g. TAO/SAO/DAO etc. Along this you have some other useful information about drivers/ASPI/ide controllers etc.
