Windows 7: What program do you use to burn the ISO file to DVD?

What program do you use to burn the ISO file to DVD?

I'm trying to install Windows 7 but I think I might have a bad burn. I burned it with Roxio at 4x speed. Every time I try to install it there's always a missing or corrupt file. So I'm trying one more time and then reburning a new DVD.

What program would you recommend I use? And what speed? I know that slower is better but the slowest my program had was 4x.

Thanks a lot!

Or maybe I'm doing something wrong? First time I tried x86 without any formatting. Next I tried x64 and it seemed to get further but then it restarted and said my CPU wont work with x64. Now I'm trying to format again and then install x86 again.

Thanks. So i'm guessing it doesn't really matter which of those programs to use?

I would go with ImgBurn as well. It's pretty lightweight, and I hardly ever get a bad burn with it.

ImgBurn and as fast as my drive will go. With good media, I've never experienced any issues with high speed burns.

I've used ImgBurn here while preferring an updated program like StarBurn that supports iso burning. 7 now offers iso burning seeing native support included in Windows there for the first time.

For a look over of ImgBurn along with StarBurn and another one not mentioned DeepBurner I have the main pages at the links here.

StarBurn
iSCSI, Free Windows iSCSI Target, Initiator and CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD Burner
Free for home and retail versions seen at download page
:: RocketDivision :: CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD recording and mastering

DeepBurner also has a free for home as well as retail version
DeepBurner

One other I could also mention here offers a free for home use if you want the ad popups following each burn called BurnOn

Just to start at square one, did you "hash-check" the .isos with the source DL site?

ImgBurn, 'Auto-speed', with 'Verify'.
