Burn ISO image to a CD without admin account

Nero Version 9

Specs: Windows XP Home Edition 2002 , Service Pack 3
I need to burn an iso image to a CD , which I could do in my sleep in most cases , but in this case , every program I've tried to use required administrative rights , which I don't have , to install , so I've had to stoop down to the public forums to find a solution =P.

So to sum up my question , what program can I use that doesn't require administrative privileges to use or install to burn an iso image to a CD?

I've tried over a dozen programs , and nothing seems to work because they try to create/edit registry keys and write files to the system32 folder , which I can't do since I don't have administrator privileges.

Thanks ,
Ace

I have cyperlink dvd suite. I burned an ISO image to update my SSD firmware. I had no problem with needing administrative permissions.

I use IMGBURN which does not seem to write to the registry...

But if your Admin has implemented this...

Then you will not be able to burn.

ImgBurn was a no go , I already tried Infrarecorder , but I tried it again for the heck of it (and it still didn't work) , and the cyberlink program is still downloading. I doubt that it'll work , because I don't have burn rights , which using a different program can't change.

Thanks for the help , but I'll have to find someone to do it for me. If cyberlink does happen to work , I'll post here again , but don't hold your breath.

"because I don't have burn rights"

Then you have no chance. We use the same thing here for security.

Just wondering, if you do not have admin rights, how are you downloading and installing these apps?

Are you saying this is a home computer? Then bootup as administrator.

I can still download the setup programs without admin rights , the problem comes when I try to install the program using the setup program.

There's XP Home and XP Pro , which are slightly different from eachother. And if I could login to the admin account , I wouldn't be on this forum :p.

Anyway , problem solved , I'll just have to ask my brother every time I need to write an image to a cd or burn a cd.
