You have to burn an "Image" to a disk. A program like nero has this option. In Nero you just select the option to burn an image to a disk, select the .iso file and burn it.

Personally, I use discjuggler, as I haven't had much success with Nero(I've used both). DiscJuggler is just a LOT easier to use for what you want. I think you can download a free trial if you google it.

Nero works just fine for burning ISO files. Or you could get use Daemon Tools to mount the ISO file. Or you could get ISOBuster.

Or you could stop being a warezing fool and actually go buy the software.

W00t!

Last time I used Nero to burn an ISO, it brought up some shit(which is more than I'm used to--mind you)about a wrong path or a practice burn or something that I didn't feel like dealing with.

Here are some special rules dealing with software:

1) It's only good if it is from IRC. NO EXCUSES!
2) With the rare chance it is from IRC, the channel must have any or all of the keywords
A. 'ISO'/'BIN'/'CUE'
B. The console the game is on
C. 'Microsoft Corporate Edition'
3) Traders give you legit stuff. FServes are never legit.

Just follow the rules and use DiscJuggler, you will never have a hassal when it comes to ISO's.

my school has a thing with Microsoft [Microsoft Developer's Network Academic Alliance (MSDNAA)]. they give certain students free access to some of their software, like the .NET suite, WinXP pro, OneNote, Project, MSDN Library etc. All of these are downloaded from a server to your computer in (surprise) .ISO image files. WinXP requires you to burn the ISO image to a cd in order to install, while the other files let you use stuff like Daemon tools to install them.

Microsoft has made a move towards ISO image files. ISO has legitimate purposes.

anyway, the link for daemon tools is http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/portal.php just in case you needed it.

No one ever said ISO didn't have legitimate purposes, but if you can show the original poster asked about it with legitimate purposes in mind then I'll give you a special cookie. :rolleyes:

BB, as its been noted already, just burn it with nero, it will give you the option to burn an "image" onto your CD. basically 'cos its ISO and if its bigger than 700mb, burn it onto a DVD-rw, if less than 700mb, burn onto CD-rw
