Can't put .iso file into a dvd disc

I am trying to clean boot my computer and since I do not have the Windows 7 DVD installer I have to put an .ISO file into a DVD disc. I downloaded the Windows 7 Professional 64-bit from here : Windows 7 Direct Download Links and tried using the Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool. It told me that the .ISO wasn't usable. I am lost on what to do now....

Use a free isoburner to burn the iso to dvd. Terrabyte does a good one.

1. Your downloaded ISO may be corrupt. Redownload.

2. Why do you want to burn it to a DVD? You can easily create a bootable pen drive with Rufus Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way or WinToBootic WiNToBootic - the ultimate Windows 7/8 USB Boot Disk Maker. The installation will be faster too. ( Backup all data on the pen drive, before creating the bootable installation pen drive.)
