Why won't my Windows 7 DVD Boot?

I'm not sure why the CD won't boot. This happened before I though maybe I'd just copied the *.iso file, but now I'm pretty sure windows 7 burned the image onto my DVD. My Bios is set to boot from CD first. The DVD looks good. There is a boot directory. Is there something I'm missing. When I did this with my laptop and a 64 bit win7.iso, I had no problems. I think I burned the image with, well maybe Nero....
thanks

Can you read the CD on another pc??? what files and folder has the DVD on??

If you see the *.iso file on the DVD you did not burn it right and that's why you can boot from the DVD.

If you have Nero you will choose the option burn from image and then choose the iso file when it ask you where the image is located
