    How to Burn Disc Image from ISO or IMG file in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Windows 7 introduced a built-in ability to burn discs directly from ISO and IMG files using Windows Disc Image Burner. This built-in feature is also included in Windows 8 and Windows 10.

    Windows Disc Image Burner can burn a disc image to CD, DVD, or Blu-ray.

    This tutorial will show you how to burn a disc image from a ISO or IMG file to CD, DVD, or Blu-ray in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    If File Explorer is not set as the default app for ISO and IMG file types, you will not see the Burn option in step 4 or step 5 below.

    This can happen if you installed a 3rd party file compression program (ex: "7-Zip" or "WinZip"), and set it as the default app for ISO and IMG file types by mistake.

    Here's How:

    1. Insert a blank unformatted CD, DVD, or Blu-ray in the CD/DVD/Blu-ray drive you want to burn to.

    2. Open File Explorer, and browse to the location of the ISO or IMG file.

    3. Do step 4 or step 5 below for how you would like to start Windows Disc Image Burner.

    4. Right click or press and hold on the ISO or IMG file, click/tap on Burn disc image, and go to step 6 below. (see screenshot below)

    6. Select the CD/DVD/Blu-ray drive you want to burn to from the Disc burner drop down, check or uncheck Verify disc after burning for what you want, and click/tap on the Burn button when ready to start. (see screenshot below)
    Note   Note
    Checking the Verify disc after burning option will have Windows verify the disc image after burning the disc, but it will also cause the process to take longer to finish.

    This could take a while to finish.

    That's it,

    Is it possible to change the speed it is burning the media with? I'm using som DVD RW x8 which supports x6 and x8 speed. But with x8 sometime it causes errors, so I want to burn these DVD RW with x6 speed. But how do I do that in Windows 10?

    Hello Burgurne,

    There doesn't appear to be an option to do so with the built-in burner in Windows.

    If you like, you could use a 3rd party program like ImgBurn to adjust the burn speed.
