How To Burn ISO CD

Updated on December 22, 2012

How To Burn ISO CD

If you are wanting to know how to burn a ISO CD, I have to put together a step by step guide on how to do so using Imgburn. Burning a ISO CD is actually pretty simple to do, but if you've never done it before and don't know where to start it may seem a little confusing to you. Just follow my simple step by step guide and you will know how to burn a ISO CD in little time.

Step 1 - On How To Burn ISO CD

The first thing you will need in order to burn the ISO CD is the ISO file you're wanting to use. For this tutorial I'm going to use a Linux ISO called Puppy Linux. So I will go to the Puppy Linux download page, find the ISO file I need and download it to my computer. For whatever ISO you need, go to the site and find the download link to the ISO. Then click on the link to download it to your computer.

Step 2 - On How To Burn ISO CD

Now that you have downloaded your ISO, the next step is to get Imgburn. It's free. If you don't know what Imgburn is, it is a free software that will allow you to burn different types of files to disc. We are going to use Imgburn's option to 'write the image file to disc' because this is what we will need to do in order to have a working ISO CD.

You can download Imgburn here.

Once you download it, install it. After the installation, restart your computer.

Step 3 - On How To Burn ISO CD

Now that Imgburn has been installed and you have restarted your computer, insert a blank CD-R disc into your computers disc drive. You can use whatever type of blank disc you want ( CD-R, CD+R, DVD-R, or DVD+R ) just make sure your computers disc drive can read the type of disc you are using. After you have inserted the disc -- wait about 30 seconds. If Imgburn doesn't load up within that time, go ahead and click on Imgburn to open it.

Step 4 - On How To Burn ISO CD

In Imgburn you will see a double-sided list of options. Select the first option in the upper left that says: "Write image file to disc"

Step 5 - On How to Burn ISO CD

In the next window of Imgburn you will see at the bottom right corner a Settings area. It will have "Write Speed" and "Copies." By default Copies is set to "1" and you only want to make one copy, so make sure it is set to 1. This part is important so pay attention. In the "Write Speed" dropdown menu select "8x." You want Imgburn to burn the disc a little slow because it will help you avoid any disc errors or problems with the ISO CD.

Step 6 - On How To Burn ISO CD

Now you need to open your .ISO file into Imgburn so it knows what file to burn the ISO CD out of.

As shown in the image below, click the little yellow folder (with magnifying glass covering it) to locate your file.

Step 7 - On How To Burn ISO CD

Now you're ready to burn the ISO CD. You will see a button at the bottom in Imgburn that has the image of a CD with a blue arrow pointing to another CD. Click on that to start burning the ISO CD.

Step 8 - On How To Burn ISO CD

No all that is left to do is wait until Imgburn has completely finished burning the ISO CD. It will let you know when it's done by making a musical sound while popping up a window that says: "Operation has been completed."

If you followed my steps and did everything correctly, you should now have a ISO CD that will boot up when you power on your computer.

Now you know how to easily burn a ISO CD.
