    ISO to DVD

    If I want to burn an ISO to a disc do I need any special application? Does the ISO somehow magically unpack itself? It's all a bit of a mystery, sorry. Any recommendations, please.

    Hi there,

    Grab something like Imgburn and double click on the ISO and it'll sort the rest out.

    The ISO is a special kind of 'image' archive of files.

    Imgburn is like Ronseal. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Thanks for the tip about Imgburn, Kim. I've always used InfraRecorder for burning ISOs but Imgburn looks a whole lot more useful.

    Surprisingly XP doesn't natively burn to a DVD disc but only CDs, but I believe Vista does support DVD and probably even Blu-ray natively with the newly released Vista SP2.

    I would recommend a third party application (as mentioned above). I like to use Nero 6 time to time. The last version of the software they made minus the bloatware!

    Yes I used Nero for burning CDs until it got too fat. Unfortunately I have lost the original disc. Currently have Nero7, which I'd forgotten about, it sends my computer loopy every time I use it.

    Note to self - must uninstall Nero7

    I've noticed recently that Windows 7 now supports burning ISO images to CDs or DVDs.

    It's about time really isn't it? Would be nice if Microsoft allowed you to open RAR files natively too. They've done it for ZIP since Windows XP and it works great. Found myself installing WinRAR quite a few times recently...
