unfortunately there are no applications that can do this on the PC. You could try an App like PearPC, which emulates (apparently) OSX on a PC, and may let you use the drive. I take it this is because you have no DVD burner on your mac? - There's always a nice network transfer you could do, to at least get it over to your mac if you have a DVD burner there...

If not, you can get cheap (£30 - US$60) DVD burners now and £10/$20 caddys so you can hook them up using USB2 or FireWire, to the mac, and then burn it from there.
