How do I burn an ISO file?

  miss stella 19:19 03 Jan 07

I recently followed instruction from the forum and downloaded Vist beta onto my hard drive. Then with more help made a new partition and burnt the downloaded ISO file onto a DVD. I installed Vista OK.
Now I want to make a new installation disc from another ISO file I have downloaded (not Visa)but try as I may I cannot get the file to burn onto a new DVD, I have tried 3 different brands of DVD including RW but the software refuses to work, it just says Unwritable disk, I did it somehow before. Can anybody tell me how and if I can download sofware which will do the trick.

I use nero for burning. To burn iso go to recorder select burn image then select your iso file click burn.

You may be better using a cd rather than a dvd.
Vista is only on dvd because of its size.
Most programs will fit a standard cd.

CDburner XP - click here
Img Burn - click here

Both available free.

Former has more on offer but a larger download
Latter lighter and easier to use

Thanks thms,
I only have DLA software and for some funny reason it worked before, I followed the instructions I was given on this forum and downloaded software by Fienman (I think) but DLA came into it somewhere.

How big is this file? If the file is small enough to fit on a CD try burning to a CD. CD ISO's will not burn to DVD's.

My thanks to all of you for your replies.
The file was 12Mb and it was burnt to a cd and the program installed fine. I am still confused as to why Vista went on a DVD with the same set up.
Thanks again,
