Windows 7: Backing up to a DVD

Backing up to a DVD

When my download of W7 finishes do I just burn it to a DVD and that's it or do I extract the content and then burn the extracted content to a DVD? Just that I saw something mentioned about this along with a tutorial (which I can't seem to find) the other day.

You will need to extract the iso and burn it to a dvd, or just burn directly to the DVD using software like Iso Recorder. That's what I personally use, but I am not sure if there is a better program.

ImgBurn works a treat too! I use that and burn at a slow speed.

Would PowerISO work too?
