Create an iso from files

I've edited a build for CENTOS and was using cdburnerxp to save the data disc compilation as an iso file, then using rufus to burn that iso file to a usb stick.  Is there a program that can take that iso and make it bootable on a DVD?

This is all done from a WIndows 7 machine.

Thanks.

I've used unetbootin for that purpose,

It's a pretty easy interface.

just burn the iso directly to a DVD and you should be done. CDBurnerXP which you already have has an option "Burn ISO image". With that option you burn it directly to DVD.

Using IMGBURN:

files to iso

Information tab - no changes

Options tab-
MODE1/2048
ISO9660 + Joilet
Recurse Subdirectories
Include Hidden files
Include system files

Labels - duh

Advanced -
 Dates tab - no changes

 Media tab - no changes

 Restrictions Tab
     Iso9660 sub tab-
        Level X - 219 characters
        character set standards
        allow more than 8 directory levels
        allow more than 255 characters in path
        allow files without extensions
        allow files exceeding size limit
                Multiple extents
        Don't add ':1' Version number to files

      Joilet sub tab -
        Level X - 110 characters
        Allow files without extensions

Then, add your working directory (make sure to choose yes after you click the write icon to confirm your working path shouldn't be included in the root.)

Wallah.

Thought I should share as I almost punched someone during the trial and error...

Caveats:  make sure, if you don't want additional software installed other than imgburn, to alter your installation on imgburn.  It comes packaged with other stuff.

I didn't know that IMGBURN created bootable ISO.  

One thing learned about IMGBURN many years ago is to turn off Sounds or you'll get shocked with sound when it completes or errors.
