BURNING AND ISO IMAGE WITH WIN 7

I have a iso file, is there any way to burn an iso with win 7, I don't have any other software yet, the iso file is Nero 10.5 so I was hoping to burn it without having to install other software to burn the image?

Windows 7, to my knowledge, will not burn an .iso by itself.

Obvioulsy, Nero would, as would most good CD DVD burning programs.

Sorry!

Just right-click the ISO and choose "Burn Disk Image".  Works great.

I think this will only work if there are no other .iso handlers loaded, I'll have to check it out on another system sometime, but thanks for the info!

Great, now my iso is corrupt, I will download again and try, thanks for the quick response, it's much appreciated!
Yes, it is native.  Straight from Microsoft:

If you have a 3rd party disk-burning utility installed, it may remove the right-click Windows option.  That's my guess, at least.

I can confirm it is native and enabled by default.  I have seen apps remove it, in lieu of their own link.  If you are still having problems, download and install ISO Recorder ... it adds a Burn ISO to CD and a Create ISO from CD to the right-click menu.

Don't think you have more advanced options like leave disk open, but definitely native from right click menu...
