Hello nobus,

First download poweriso software from here: http://www.poweriso.com/

Then make a .iso file by right click on USB drive or open the software and add files. After that you will able to make its DVD.

Feel free to ask if you need any help.

Thanks
Edwin

I haven't tried this with Windows 8 but it's worth a shot.

Copy the contents of your media to a folder on a hard drive and add your folder and program to the root directory. Then use this example to create your DVD.

Edwin - that software is not free; so i' think i'll try Rob's suggestion first (i have img burn installed )
Rob, is there any need to copy the usb content to the disk first? Can i make it directly from the USB stick files?

II haven't tried that method but I would expect a slow read write if it's possible, it maybe different with USB3 Devices. I've always followed the instructions with reference to image burn and have been mostly successful. You can try it as you will only lose time and a dud DVD if it doesn't work :)

it's a usb 3 stick - so speed should be relatively fast
