I have always had Good Luck with image burn for burning DVD's and CD's.
It is free updated regularly and is as technical as you like or not. Will also verify the burnt disc to ensure it is not a coaster.
Get it from here The Official ImgBurn Website (website)
Download The Official ImgBurn Website from your nearest server.
Donations excepted if you like it enough.

What do you mean? Image burn is burner software for optical media. If the ISO you burn is corrupted then no it won't fix that.

dvd

When a relative novice asks a computer question of a knowledgeable person, it may sound ridiculous.
However, it is the only way for one to learn. I thought that the compatibility test was telling me I had to have a dvd burning program not something else so I asked about it.
I discovered that neither of my pcs will be able to use Win 8 because they lack that "secure boot" among a few other things. When I bought these Dells I got an Intel i5 - 3.30 GHz, 1T, and all the hardware I thought would be good enough for an upgrade to avoid buying new pcs again. Now I have discoverd that I did not purchase pcs to allow for upgrades.
I won't pester again.

No problem, you mean the windows 8 upgrade compatibility test?
You don't need the secure boot feature to upgrade to Windows 8. The new OS just supports that feature in the new kind of computer bios. You can run 8 without that with no problem. Most computers in use do not have that feature so Microsoft would always support the regular bios for the foreseeable future.
What I would advise you to do is post a new question in the Windows 8 forum where they will be able to walk you through installing Windows 8 if you wish too on your machines. This thread has been marked closed so most of the guys don't see it any more.
Never be afraid to ask or post anything, there is always someone who knows something and everyone here wants to help. If anyone on this forum insults anyone they get banned.

I feel your pain. Trying to get complete answers and/or easily understood instructions from kowledgeable people is like pulling teeth with tweezers.
