Nero is a suite of audio and video applications that allow users to extract, create, edit audio and video and burn CD and DVD discs. A useful feature of Nero is the ability to open, create and burn many image file formats, such as ISOs, to disc. An ISO (International Organization for Standardization) image is a computer file standard that is a virtual copy of CDs/DVDs.
Things You'll Need
- ISO image file
- CD/DVD burner
Open Nero Burning ROM. It is found on the Nero StartSmart window or on the Programs menu on the computer.
Choose the CD/DVD burner. Click "Recorder" on the menu at the top of the window and click "Choose Recorder". Choose the recorder device at the top of this window and click "OK".
Begin a new compilation. Click the "New" icon on the Nero Burning ROM window.
Open the ISO file. Click the "Open" icon at the bottom of the window, browse to the location of the ISO file and click "Open." This will open the file into the "Burn Compilation" window and the program will automatically open the image in a CD or DVD format, depending on the size and format of the ISO.
Choose the burn settings under the "Burn" tab. Under Action, check the boxes "Determine maximum speed", "Write", "Finalize disc" and "Verify written data". Under Writing, choose the writing speed as maximum, which is determined by the program.
Burn the disc. Insert blank DVD media into the DVD burner drive. Click the "Burn" button at the bottom of the window and wait for the burning process to finish and for the burned data to be verified, so as to avoid writing errors.
