You'll need to burn it as an ISO, you can't just burn it straight to a disc.

Most commercial software will have this feature (I expect), but for a free windows version see: http://cdburnerxp.se/.

Personally I like to use PowerISO to open .iso files. You just open the file in the program, right click on it and extract it to somewhere on your hard drive, go to that folder where you put it and press the start application file.

Easy!

There is also one called MagicISO which does the same thing.

Are you sure you burned the ISO correctly.
