I was going to suggest Nero, but I couldn't get it to work either!

However, CDRWin from seems to be
producing an image of a CONOLD CD right now. It produces
.bin/.cue by default - it may or may not be able to produce
ISOs. Even if it cannot, there are tools available (for
Windows) which will happily convert as required.

I've not actually attempted to use the results with SIMH, so
all I'm reporting is that CDRWin is reading *something* from
the CD! I'd burn the result to a CDRW if I thought any of
my RRD4x devices could cope.
