    Burning ISO file (on comp) to DVD disc

    Well...I went and bought a multi-format burner and tried 3 different software applications (including ImgBurn) and it still did not work. I burned the ISO file onto a dvd with the multiformat burner and the result was the same: the dvd turned up blank with no file inside it and could not be read by a DVD player even though when I insert it into a computer it's coming up as a "DVD-ROM." Just the disc is coming up blank even after I tried to write the ISO file on it. I'm convinced now more than ever that it's not a DVD problem, or a disc problem. I think it's just the file itself is bad and there's no burner or comp that is able to convert it into DVD format even though it plays beautifully on VLC Media Player. After a week and a half of trying different softwares and research on various forums, it looks like I have no choice but to give up. I guess all I can say is, I tried. Thanks for the help though. I appreciate all the suggestions/guides that you guys have provided me with.

    Burning ISO file (on comp) to DVD disc

    I tried the process again and it did not work as the disc came up blank (Damn it)! It looks like I'll have to invest in buying a multi-format burner. I do however, have some questions about that though. When you buy one how does it work? Does this device come with a USB cable drive to hook it up with the comp or do you have to physically remove the current dvd writer that's inside your hardware? If it's the latter I'd be pretty nervous about that because I'm not really a technical person and I'd be afraid if I tampered with it then it might damage the hardware... Can these things also be compatible with a PC laptop or do you have to get one that is specifically designed exclusively for portable comps?

    I took a picture of it and this is what I see.

    I tried it again and I see a new toolbar tab that comes up above it under E:\ and it lists Astroburn a search toolbar and Daemon Tools. Is any of this making sense?

    The File is coming up as "UNNAMED_VOLUME.iso

    Uhh...I guess nothing? I inserted the disc into my dvd-ROM drive and it came up showing the file in it and is followed by a separate menu "Open With...Choose the Program you want to use to open this file:" I selected Explorer but the Explorer did not come up....in fact it didn't do anything...just a blink and then stays the same.

    What is the correct procedure then? Do I build the iso file onto the disc? I tried the guide that instructs to write the ISO file on to a dvd.

    Burning ISO file (on comp) to DVD disc

    I may have to do that. I tried this process again on the same comp and I was successfully able to get the Iso file onto the DVD+RW. But the Iso file (on the disc) is just the same as it were on my comp and cannot be read by a dvd player (and this was done using the steps in the link provided by Shamus). I used this cd to transfer the file to my laptop (it took a long time but I was able to get the file into my Videos folder) and I tried to do the same thing but unfortunately DVD+RW's are incompatible for the laptop. I also tried DVD-RW and that didn't work either. This is what came up for the laptop: I 15:42:23 ImgBurn Version 2.3.2.0 started!

    Burning ISO file (on comp) to DVD disc

    Hmmm....okay this is very odd. I've tried the steps in the link you gave me and the disc is coming up blank. When I load ImgBurn and start the process it first tells me that the disc needs to be formatted and asks if I would like to erase the disc (even though it's blank and brand new). It erases the disc then goes ahead with the write process (for about 20 mins or so...then does the process of verifying which takes another 20 mins.) Then when it's finished it tells me that the burn was successful and I get a separate menu that loads (not from Imgburn), stating that I have inserted a blank disc and asks what I want the computer to do. It lists a bunch of apps and such listing what I can do with them (i.e. Run iTunes to add music, run ImgBurn, Nero, etc.) I also tried to put it into a dvd player just to be sure and it says "No Play".

    Burning ISO file (on comp) to DVD disc

    Awesome! I bought a bunch of DVD+RW and the ImgBurn problem has been solved. Now, with that out of the way, to burn the Iso file onto the DVD...am I suppose to write or build? I read the guides but they seem to be starting with DVD's to transfer to other DVDs and/or to the comp. I assume that because Iso is an image file it has to be converted first before I can actually burn it into a DVD so that it can be read by a DVD player. I am certain this question has been asked before so I wouldn't mind if one of you guys could post a link to a similar thread with instructions. Thank you for all your help Lightning UK and Jason! I appreciate it!

    That would be a little hard considering I'm a little short on dough for the time being...but would the ImgBurn software work with a DVD+RW disc for what I want to do?

    This is what turns up in the Imgburn main menu on the right hand corner. This contains the information about the HP DVD writer and cd...

    This is what came up in the ImgBurn log when I tried to do it: I 17:23:32 ImgBurn Version 2.3.2.0 started!

E 17:23:46 Operation Failed! - Duration: 00:00:04 I don't know why but it won't give me any option to burn or write unless I click the erase icon for the disc even though it's blank. The erase method (either Quick or Full) fails and this comes up. The previous post I made (with the error message for the DVD-RW) is what pops up after the erase thing fails (in a separate screen, not in the log). My first thought was maybe all the discs I have are bad (they are a year and a half old, even though plenty I have were never used) and I considered going to the store opting to buy another set of DVD-RW's or DVD-RAM. But if you're saying that my comp doesn't support it then that probably wouldn't work either...
