Many files are distributed over the Internet as CD image files, called ISO.
Unlike a regular data file, the ISO file cannot be dragged and dropped
or copied directly onto a disc. It needs to be burned in a specific way
that expands/extracts the image so you have usable files on your disc. This requires:

  • A working CD/DVD burner
  • An 80 minute (700 Mb) CD
The
cheapest "write once" CDs that can only usually be bought in packets of
10 or more tend to be much better for this. DVDs require a higher 'burn
speed' which often causes problems. More expensive types of CDs seem
optimised for data-storage rather than for booting-up from. Also if the
1st one does not work it hurts a lot less and also you often get a
spindle to keep your CDs on.

If you have windows 95 / 98 / ME / 2000 / XP / Server2003 / Vista... first of all those are super old outdated operating systems update your computer fool! download Infra Recorder


  1. Insert a blank CD in the drive and select Do nothing or Cancel if an autorun dialog pops up.
  2. Open Infra Recorder and click the 'Write Image' button in the main screen.

    • Alternatively you can select the 'Actions' menu, then 'Burn image'.







Select the iso file you want to use, then click 'Open'.
  • In the dialog, click 'OK'.

    XP / Server 2003 / Vista
    Download and install the appropriate version of ISO Recorder.
    Insert an unformatted CD into your burner. (Note: one can burn DVDs with this tool only from Vista.) (Note2: CD != DVD)
    3. Open Windows Explorer, browse to your ISO file, right-click and choose "Next".

    Mac OS
    1. Launch Disk Utility (Applications => Utilities => Disk Utility[disk copy is older versions]).
    2. Insert your blank CD/DVD.
    3. Drag and drop your .iso file to the left pane in Disk Utility. Now both the blank disc and the .iso should be listed.
    4. Select the .iso file, and click on the Burn button in the toolbar.
    5. Ensure that the "Verify burned data" checkbox is checked (you may need to click on the disclosure triangle to see the checkbox).
    6. Click on Burn. The data will be burned and verified.
