Need software to burn DVD

I'm trying to burn a DVD with Dban so I can wipe my HD, but I don't have the software to burn the DVD.  

How can I get a free one...will just need it for this time.

Either IMGBurn http://www.imgburn.com/
or CDBurnerXP http://cdburnerxp.se/ (as noted by iSiek)

Both are free and excellent.  Good tutorials can be found on both sites.

Is there a way I can do this without burning the CD/DVD?  I need to do this pretty quick because I need to turn in the laptop in the morning.

If your computer drive has a floppy drive then look at http://www.dban.org/node/15

You can install the ISO for DBAN on a USB Flash drive using the Universal USB Installer
[http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ ]

... but it's VERY simple to just burn the ISO to a CD using ImgBurn [suggested above]


If you want to use a flash drive, just download the Universal USB Installer and the ISO for DBAN.    Run the Universal USB Installer program & just follow the instructions.

Just for info, experts, this is a follow-on question from:

Won't your current employer be expecting an Operating System to still be on the laptop when you return it?

If I had the same needs as yours I would remove the laptop hard drive, connect it using an adapter to a desktop PC running Windows, and use a "secure wipe" program run from the PC to scrub the laptop drive.  I would then run a data recovery program from the PC and see if it was able to recover any data you would not want to be left on it.  I suppose it all depends on what lengths your current employers are likely to go to in search of data on the laptop.

Obviously you need an adapter.  If you don't have that, then the suggestion by nobus looks good to me.
