information   Information
This tutorial will show you how to use the built-in Windows Disc Image Burning Tool to burn a ISO or IMG disc image file to a CD/DVD in Windows 7 and Windows 8.

warning   Warning
Windows Disc Image Burner will need to be set as the default program with all of it associations (.iso & .img) set to it for this to work. It is by default in Windows 7 and 8.




Here's How:
1. Place a blank unformatted CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and do step 2 or 3 below.
NOTE: If a AutoPlay window opens with the option to format the CD/DVD, then just close it.

2. Right click or press and hold on the ISO or IMG file that you want to burn to CD/DVD, click/tap on Burn disc image, and go to step 4 below. (see screenshot below)

5. Check the Verify disc after burning box if you want Windows 7 to verify the disc image afterwards, otherwise leave it unchecked. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: Verifying the disc will take a little bit longer for the disc image to be finished.
