Here is a pretty good overview of how to "Burn a Disk"
just be aware it is Microsoft centric and uses MS Software.

You do not need to buy software, as there are many Free options
that accomplish the same thing as the MS software.

One piece of software that I have is called ImgBurn

Most of the software will have a learning curve, but are pretty strait forward.

I'm sure others will have suggestions.

A lot of programs, now give you the choice to install toolbars & other during the install. Either uncheck these items during install, or use Custom install. No more click, click during an install, you have to read after each click.

I use Softpedia & FreewareFiles.com, down the bottom of the page, they make you aware what Ad-supported programs the author of the program has included.

First and foremost, extra attention needs to be paid during installation as ImgBurn offers to create desktop shortcuts to third-party apps, as well as install a browser toolbar onto the host computer, which are not required to ensure the smooth running of the app.
SS of above.

This is what ImgBurn tries to install.

Use Unchecky to help prevent these third party installs. Nothing is perfect, the badies are always ahead of the goodies, so be vigilant.

If you have tried the native Windows 7 burning program ind couldn't get it to work, keep in mind there is what I feel an extra step. When you think you have set up a burn session look at the top of the screen to find a button "burn files" or something similar. Very confusing when switching from WinXP, which could burn CDR media.

So try it again.
