    Burning ISO files

    Can ISO files be burned as a disc image using native Win7? If not can anyone suggest a suitable download for very occasional use when I have anISO file?

    In win 7, simply clicking on or right clicking on the iso image file will bring up a window with the option of Burn iso file to disk (Not sure of exact wording). This works great.

    If you find, as I have that the native burner lacks some desired options try this:
    CDBurnerXP
    Yes, it runs fine in Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

    Ted, You are correct. Right clicking brings up a menu which I already checked out, but the burn option is hidden under "Open With - Windows disc Image Burner"

    I checked out this link yesterday. It is confusing!
    1 Double clicking the ISO file brings up a Win7 error messsage that there is 'no program associated with this type of file'. It does not bring up Window Disc Image burner
    2 The note on this link states" You can't create disc image files using Windows Disc Image Burner. To create a disc image file, you need to install and use a third-party CD or DVD burning program or other program that lets you create disc image files from a CD or DVD." It also states "You can burn a disc image file, which often has either an .iso or .img file name extension, to a recordable CD or DVD by using Windows Disc Image Burner."

    See my reply above, the secret seems to lie in the 'Open With' menu

    The message is correct, you cannot create image file to burn to CD/DVD using windows image burn. Only burn existing .iso images to cd/DVD.

    A good free third party one with more options is imgburn. Just google it or go to cnet.com for a download

    When I right click the Burn Disk Image I get the Windows Disk Image Burner windows as follows:

    WindowsDiskImageBurber.jpg

    I can choose to verify the Image, then click Burn and it just does.

    We have the same thing. Mystery is why yours is explicitly on the right-click menu, and mine is a level further down. One of MS's great little tricks!!

    I am as clueless as you with this one. Perhaps a difference in versions??? I have Ultimate. Perhaps a difference in CD/DVD loaded S/W, who knows!!!

    It would appear that something has changed the default behaviour for .iso files (if I were to hazard a guess I would say Winzip) as I get the same option as Ted using 64 bit Home Premium.

    There is a fix-it tool available although I'm not sure if it can restore the default behaviour

    I do not actually have Winzip on my PC. I use 7Zip instead, but I do not believe it had anything to do when I burned the iso file to DVD.

    Found the solution. Double click the file and when Win complains about lack of associated file, choose Windows Disk Image Burner from list, and this puts the option right back on the Right click menu. Seems WinZip did mes things up a little
