    I thought that Windows 7 had a built-in burner, and all you had to do
    was right-click the .iso image and it would run. It doesn't work. I
    get nothing.

    Works here ok - is your CD/DVD burner working? Is the CD/DVD blank?

    When you say you get nothing when you right click, do you mean no
    context menu, no "Burn disc image" listing on the context menu, or that
    "Burn disc image" doesn't work when you click on it?

    Sorry. I should have said "I get a context menu, but there's no "Burn
    disc image" listing on it.

    Tried that. All it did was tell me that there was no program to "open
    the file". I.e., Win7 didn't recognize the extension ".iso".

    Why don't you just try to drop the file on a blank DVD to see what Win 7
    does with it? DVD isn't a lot of money to blow away.

    Roy,

    Just d/l and run this.
    http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

    Make sure you associate it with "iso" files, then all you have to do is
    double-click on the file and imgburn will open automatically.

    Are you certain that your optical disk drive is supported by Windows 7 for
    writing? Over the years the various commercial mastering programs (Roxio,
    for example) have at times required updates when hardware manufacturers have
    come out with design changes. Try checking on the vendor's web site to see
    if there's any statement of compatibility.

    Just noticed this thread: I have not thought much so sorry if this is not
    very coherent.

    What happens with an ISO file depends upon your PC. An ISO file can be read
    by a utility program such as Winzip in order to convert it to files, the
    result will be as though you have copied a disk to the hard drive and then
    you can run the setup file if that is the type of thing it is, but also it
    might be, for example, a film or films.

    If you want the file written as a disk image to a DVD or Bluray so you will
    have a film disk, put a DVD or bluray in the drive, x out of whatever pops
    up, then right click on the ISO file, select Send To and select the
    DVD/Bluray drive. A question will come up asking you, basically, to choose
    what sort of ISO it is. Select your choice and Bob's yr uncle.

    During doing this you might notice that one of the options on right clicking
    the ISO is that you can read it using Winzip or whatever you have got to
    unzip stuff.

    Also you can choose if you want to write the disk image to a DVD even if it
    is the type you can read with Winzip unless of course it is too big. That
    might be for example if it was a software ISO that you wanted to give to
    another PC.

    To anyone who thinks I am promoting illegal activity here: there are plenty
    of films and software ISOs that it is legal to pass on.
