Is it an ISO file?  In most cases, you'll need to burn an ISO to disk and then reboot to CD/DVD.

The img file can be extracted, no need to burn to disk.

I recommend UltraISO, with it you can mount, extract, edit and burn the CD/DVD image.  Don't be mislead by the name.  

[UltraISO] supports nearly all known CD/DVD image file formats (.ISO, .BIN, .IMG, .CIF, .NRG, .MDS, .CCD, .BWI, .ISZ, .DMG, .DAA, .UIF, .HFS and so on)

DAEMON Tools and IsoBuster are also good.

Alcohol 120% combines all functions of Alcohol 52% (CD & DVD emulation software) but with added DVD & CD burning capabilities.  It has a free 15 day trial and it should work for you as well, especially if you want to create a physical backup disc.

I strongly recommend ImgBurn as the best free solution out there.
It's easy to use, well supported and is kept up to date.

(p.s. It supports almost every burner)
