I have been following numerous guides about burning ubuntu ISO to a DVD. I have downloaded the recommended software and it is all useless. Nothing works. All I have accomplished is loading my computer with programs that continue to pop up messages about the danger my computer is in.

What do I need to do to burn ubuntu to a DVD?????

That's a Windows issue. Perhaps a Windows forum, or Google "Windows burn iso" will get you somewhere. –  Marc Jun 23 '13 at 0:24
Uh.. What "guides" have you been following?? –  Seth Jun 23 '13 at 0:27
what error messages exactly and what dvd burning software? –  bodhi.zazen Jun 23 '13 at 0:36
Can you burn other Iso's to dvd's? This really doesn't seem like a question for ask Ubuntu. Given the broad network of StackExchange sites, there is bound to be at least one or more where this question would make sense. –  Nil Jun 23 '13 at 0:55

The latest version of ubuntu requires a DVD, I recommend buring with infrarecorder if you are using windows, use the burn disk image option
You can use a usb to boot if you prefer, you can make that using unetbootin
To use the disk you boot to it using your BIOS's boot menu (consult your systems manual for what key you press at the splash screen to get there)

I avgree, it is easier / faster and more cost effective to use a live usb drive –  bodhi.zazen Jun 23 '13 at 0:35
