Software update: IsoBuster 5.0

Spread the love

Smart Projects has released IsoBuster version 5.0. This program specializes in reading bad or damaged CDs and DVDs, and in many cases it can recover files that are no longer recognized by Windows. Another strong point of IsoBuster is that it can read almost any CD or DVD image format imaginable, including *.iso, *.bin, *.img, *.ccd and *.nrg. The program is largely free, but some advanced features are only accessible to paying users. What exactly they are is out this page to find. Since version 3.0, the program can also handle all other internal and external storage media, such as hard drives, USB sticks and memory cards. The changelog for this release shows the following changes and improvements:


  • A 64 bit version
  • High DPI scaling and 4K/8K monitor support, crisp display at higher DPI instead of blurry fonts etc.
  • Dark Theme / Style support (Select under Options \GUI\Styles). Currently two dark and one light styles are included, but there’s an option to use any other compatible VCL Style out thereor you could make your own
  • Automatic switching between dark and light theme, depending on the system setting
  • Per monitor scaling
  • Panasonic DMR-BWT835 and DMR-BWT730 DVR/PVR support


  • LibEWF version 20130416 updated to version 20140608
  • Improvements for setting or resetting the image file associations in Options (Image Files / Supported Image File extensions)
  • Put back previous image file associations if possible, on reset or uninstall
  • Improved scanning for Panasonic DVR/PVR file systems
  • Panasonic and Pioneer DVR/PVR file/folder name entries are now considered UTF8
  • Multi-File + Multi-Session CUE files without a LEAD-OUT entry (even though faulty) are now supported
  • Plenty of other GUI improvements


  • Fixed an Exception Error that could happen while parsing certain IFO file systems on DVD
  • Fixed a Stack Overflow (IsoBuster would simply shut down) on highly fragmented files in the UDF file system
  • Fixed an issue that the ‘Open File’ Dialog didn’t default to *.* when the CUE file didn’t contain a file path
  • Fixed it so that CUE files without a quoted file/path still work properly
