ok i checked and that link i posted for WD’s site does not mention an iso version or iso tutorial anymore and i think it used to…
i also downloaded the link WD provides and ran it and its just the DOS program .exe
i went and looked at my changelog for Hirens BootCD and it is using
Western Digital Diagnostics (DLGDIAG) 5.19
i think version 5.20 is current (from WD)
I have Hirens 15.1 on a flash drive and i noticed 15.2 is out now so its possible it has the newer version of WD’s program but i havn’t checked if its updated yet…
So yeah the same program is on Hirens…
You can burn the .iso CD image that you download from Hiren’s web site that is the old classic way of doing that… many people now a days prefer to use a flash drive because they are quicker etc that is why i mentioned that.
Also i tend to use that as a DOS platform so for example i have Hirens on a flash drive (or cd/dvd)
and i copy what ever DOS program i want on it to the root of the drive and load up Hirens and select “DOS” …what a minute and go to the root of the drive and run the dos program like that.
So basicly its easy to put new programs on there is what i’m saying and it has a DOS environment to run in the menu (its listed under programs)
Lastly it also has a lot of other drive testing tools that will work for your drive so you can test it out with many… far too many to list …many are from HDD manufacturers such as Seagate or Fujitsu etc
