How to Burn a "ISO" or "IMG" Disc Image file to a CD/DVD in Windows 7 and Windows 8

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)

4. Next to Disc burner, click/tap on the drop down arrow and select the CD/DVD drive with the blank CD/DVD in it. (see screenshot below step 4)

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.

NOTE: You will not see this if you did not check the box. Instead you will see step 8.

Hello Peter,

Are you right clicking on a .img or .iso file? It will only appear for these file types.

.iso. I have several stored on my various drives and they all just start with the option to open, take ownership and so on.

Under default programs, associate a file type......etc. it isn't even listed as a file type.

If you had installed some other 3rd party disc image program, it may have unset the default Windows Disc Image Burner that Windows 7 uses. In Default Programs, check to make sure that Windows Disc Image Burner is set as the default program with all of it's associations set to it as well.

You hit the nail on the head. Although it appeared if I double-clicked a .iso it had 0 of its 2 defaults in Default Programs.

Now that I specified them it shows in the right-click too.

Thanks.

Not sure why that had come undone.

Peter,

I'm happy to hear that you got it back now. My only guess is some 3rd party program may have unset it.
