First of all, with an .iso, and Nero, you do not open Nero first, you right click on the .iso, then choose "open with" and you choose Nero Burning Rom from the list (if it does not appear, browse for it). Then Nero will open, and Nero will say to insert disk, that's all you need to do, then click on burn.

Edit: If you have the wrong media, Nero will tell you, and at that time you put in the DVD.

Also, just so you know, UDF stands for Universal Disk Format, which is when you are burning data as data, and not in an audio or video format. Example, I want to backup several albums and put them on a DVD, I would choose DVD-UDF and burn them just as data to copy elswhere. Same applies to a CD, you would burn a CD-UDF if you wanted to backup your documents. You can also burn several .avi files on one DVD, then watch them from the data DVD without having to make them single bootable DVDs.

As long as you are not opening Nero first, but right clicking on the .iso file itself to let Nero open, then it sounds as if your .iso file is corrupt. If Nero can not recognize it as a true .iso and gives you that error, generally whomever compiled the .iso originally has done it incorrectly, and you may want to consider trying to obtain another .iso to try.

It appears as though you may not have a recorder set properly in Nero. You can check this first, by opening Nero Burning Rom (not Nero Express) and when you choose DVD on the top left of the window that opens, if it says "image" that is because you need to select a recorder. If this is the case, then choose recorder, close Nero, and start over by right clicking on the .iso again. It should never be asking you where to save the file, you are burning it to DVD.

Burning an .iso with Nero is very easy, provided your settings in Nero are correct first. Also make sure you are choosing Nero Burning Rom on the right click, and NOT Nero Express, then you choose burn image, and Nero opens, default should be 16x burn speed, and click on burn.

I will check back later tonite to see if you got it ok, and if you are still having issues, I am also posting a link here for you that is a .pdf online manual for additional help.

Edit: I would like to suggest that you create a desktop shortcut for Nero Burning Rom so it is very easy for you to find. If you are unaware of how to do this go to start > programs > Nero > Burning Rom > right click on Nero Burning Rom, send to, desktop, create shortcut. Then you do not have to get to it through Nero Smart Start and you have a direct shortcut right to the part of Nero you need to use.

2nd EDIT: Just to be sure, when you mouseover the file you are calling an .iso, does it have an image icon, and does it say "image file" when you mouseover it? Sometimes the .iso files are wrapped in winrar or other formats, and while they may be labeled as an .iso, it may be that you have to extract the .iso first prior to burning....just checkin' to be sure. :wink:

The best program for iso burning is imgburn http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download. (Free with donation option). This will handle all types of image files and dual layer DVD. I first started using it for XBOx360 discs which are around 8GB with a non standard layer break. I am assuming you have an .iso file you wish to create a disc from, rather than the other way round(create an .iso file from your own data)

Imgburn opens with a menu of options including "Write image file to disc" Click on it. Select your .iso file in the Source option, select your burner in the drop-down list and hit the copy icon.

Iso files can be accessed directly for viewing the contents in 3 ways. First Winrar will open them, second use a virtual Drive such as Daemon Tools, which can be used to mount the .iso file in the same way as sticking a real CD/DVD into a real optical drive. It can then be copied, viewed or played. Thirdly there are a number of programs such as Magic Iso, which allow you to create or modify existing iso files.

I will agree ImgBurn is a decent alternative to Nero, I have both of those programs, and there are several others that work well also. Since he asked for help specifically with Nero which is what he had, I stuck with that one, and hopefully he got it resolved.

I'm glad someone suggested imgburn, lightweight, simple, no hassle ISO burning...Nero is good...but sheesh...just not worth the headaches.

I think it's a matter of what you are used to, I have both, and have used both. Nero is just as fast and easy imo. Right click on iso, burn. Yah, Nero is bloatware on your pc, but it's easy to use imo.

Edit: I like ImgBurn when using cue files with an .iso, but I prefer Nero for just a simple .iso burn.

Try this:

You can install Alcohol 52% Free Edition.
http://www.free-downloads.net/programs/ ... ee_Edition

Set up a virtual drive and try to mount the image file (ISO). If that works then you know the image is OK.

It depends if you are going to burn Windows 10 iso to DVD or USB?
The method of burning to DVD is different from that of burning to USB.
