    You cannot BURN to a BD-ROM drive, it is a read only, typically virtual drive created by ISO programs, etc.

    Choose another, typically your DVD Burner.

    His drive is a combination Blu-Ray and DVD-RW drive. This is what mine says with a blank DVD-R inserted:

    I assume you have the ISO file saved to your hard drive? Do you have a blank DVD-R inserted in the drive? An error will likely ruin the DVD-R, so you have to start with a fresh one. For Windows 7, I recommend using IMGBURN to burn the ISO file to DVD:

    ImgBurn used to be recommended too widely till we come to know that it bundles PUPs like OpenCandy.

    CDBurnerXP is comparatively safe as a free program, depending on its download process. If we do to the 'Download' Tab of the Website: https://cdburnerxp.se/en/download

    And then click on the 'More Download Options', it provides a version that is said to be free from PUPs.

    And that program is not too bad.

    Thanks everybody. I managed to burn to a DVD using an external BD R/W which worked and then tested to see if my laptop BD Rom would read and it did

burning an ISO DVD
I burned one with Windows 7 and noticed it seemed to burn at full speed. Is it worth using a program like imgburn which allows you to select slower burn speeds, perhaps resulting in fewer installation problems?
