    I would appreciate if 7zip could include a feature in the next release which allows users to
    make an *.iso from a mounted DVD/CD.

    7zip could already read an *.iso file. So creating such an archive is not far away any more.

    The resulting *.iso should contain boot code if it is available on original DVD.

    You can copy iso image of DVD.
    1) Run 7-Zip File Manager
    2) Open top level folder
    3) Open "\." item
    4) Select DVD drive item, press F5 (Copy), and select the folder to write ISO image.

    Ok, it works.

    However this procedure is a kind of weird.

    Why not introducing a 7zip context menu entry (for drives) which let users create an .iso archive just as if one create a .7z archive?

    Could you add this in the next version?

    Thank you
    Thomas

    I would love a right click "save to .iso" option as well
