An ISO image is burned

  • Now is the time to begin burning your ISO file. When you initially start ImgBurn, you’ll get a lovely splash screen as the program loads.
  • You’ll see a wonderful option menu where you can choose which ImgBurn operation you want to perform. Select “Write image file to disc” from the top left menu.
  • The main selection menu appears from here.
  • This is ImgBurn’s primary window, and despite all of the text and controls, it’s fairly simple to use. By clicking on the browse folder button, you can select the file you want to burn. This will open the file browser, from which you may navigate to the ISO file you want to burn.
  • The window will now update to show your selection after picking the file.
  • Here you will decide the burn speed and whether or not you want the disc to be confirmed, which you should do. Verification will double-check that what’s written on the disc matches the ISO file you have, preventing problems caused by faulty CDs, burn process difficulties, and more. If the verification fails, try burning it at a slower speed.
  • Click the large button/image in the bottom-left corner to begin burning the image on the CD (the illustration of a file being transferred to a CD).
  • After it has burned, you will be presented with a confirmation dialogue similar to the one below. You can now close the application and go on with your work.


Read on for possible resolution alternatives if the ImgBurn software gives you any issues or the final CD is not properly burned/bootable/usable.

If you get any error warnings while burning a CD, attempt the steps below in the sequence listed:

  • Re-try the burn at the lowest setting possible (1x or 2x). Burning CDs can be demanding and delicate; burning at the fastest speed usually fixes most problems.
  • If you’re trying to write the ISO image on a CD-RW (erasable, rewritable CD), try using a single-use CD-R instead.
  • Burn to a CD-R instead of a DVD-R if you’re burning to a DVD-R. If your PC allows you to write to DVDs, try burning to a DVDR disc instead of a CD-R disc. 1
  • Try a different brand of CD-R media; some of the less expensive kinds aren’t fully compatible with all CD-writing software.
  • Try burning the CD using a different application to see if you get a different error message. Instead, see our instructions for burning CDs using ActiveISO.
  • If you have access to another PC, try burning from there.
