Which software were you using and how long ago? I've used Roxio, Nero,
and Easy CD Creator- all of which did that. Most bundled burning
software will do it automatically. They offer burn from cd/dvd  image,
as well as data cd creation, so when you double click on an iso file it
sets up to burn the image for you.

If you haven't got the bundled software installed I agree with you
though. Fairly uncommon though.
