I'm trying to create a bootable dvd for Ubuntu 12.04LTS using a Windows 8 machine. The download of the .iso went well, but now I need to burn it to a dvd. Instructions for Windows 7 say to right click on the .iso file and then select Windows Disc Image Burner. No such option appears on Win 8. Any suggestions?

Sopunds as if you need DVD burning software. – bodhi.zazen Jun 20 '13 at 16:39
This is falsely marked as duplicate. The user is aware of how to burn a disc image, but the instructions do not apply to his windows installation. – jvdneste Aug 7 '15 at 9:35

When the Burn Disk Option isn't available in the menu when right clicking on an ISO image:

Right click on the ISO -> Choose Properties.

On the General tab Change the "Opens with" option to "Windows Explorer". Click Apply.

Go back. Right click on ISO -> Burn Disk Image. (Now the option is available)

That's it.

Use Windows Image Burner. Right click on your ISO and select Windows Image Burner, pop in a blank DVD and select your DVD drive and click burn.
