I'd like to burn CD iso files and DVD iso files on Windows using my DVD burner. What software is the cheapest (retail, not using bit torrents) or free and doesn't contain adware or malware?


@DrZoo - When uploading to Google Drive, and then download the file you just uploaded. It says ImgBurn has a virus.

  • I use ImgBurn – DrZoo May 9 '16 at 0:54
  • @DrZoo - Can you give me the exact steps you used to download it? Did your computer get infected? – MacGyver May 9 '16 at 1:01
  • Nope, no problems at all. It's a rather popular free ISO burning software. I downloaded it from their website and used one of the mirrors, but you can also download it from Ninite or something. – DrZoo May 9 '16 at 1:04
  • @DrZoo - See my edit above. Might want to try that workflow in Google Drive with the one in your Downloads folder, and make sure you don't have a virus. – MacGyver May 9 '16 at 1:08

Windows has a built-in image burner. Just right-click on the .iso file and open it with Windows Disc Image Burner if it isn't the default action already.


  • Clarifying the answer: right click *.iso file > Open With > Windows Disc Image Burner – MacGyver May 9 '16 at 3:45
  • True as of WIn7. Maybe Vista. I don't think XP had the ISOBURN.EXE program. – TOOGAM May 9 '16 at 5:01
