Ok i have downloaded three shows and they are in .iso format. When i go into my Roxio DVD maker it does not list the .iso format. How do i make these able to be burnt to a DVD disk? Do I have to do some converting? If i Burn the image to a DVD disk will it play in my DVD player>?

Ok cool. What would be the best format for me to convert it to be able to put it on dvd so it would play in my DVD player. Will i have to buy it also?

ISO does not need to be converted. If you want a free straight-forward program, try out Imgburn, even though I'm sure Roxio can do it as well. It burns practically any CD/DVD image. The DVD will play on any player as long as the ISO is well authored by the creator.

An image is just a way to put a bunch of files together. The burned image will play on your DVD if what's inside of it is playable by your DVD. But anything could be in there, you can make an image out of .exe files, or mp3s!

As for converting, that depends on what dvd-authoring software you're gonna use. Some will convert pretty much anything into DVD-playable formats, some others won't.

And despite the risk of being called a fanboy, here's my advice: do yourself a favour and go Mac.

You definitely have to buy a new overpriced computer to burn ISO files.

DMG files can be burned with the Hardware Tool System Utility
On Mac you can use Liquid CD for burning an ISO

Hardware Tool System Utility? Liquid CD? No, you just use /Applications/Disk Utility.app

Overpriced? You obviously know nothing about computers.

There's a difference between expensive and overpriced, just like there's a difference between cheap and underpriced. For example:

"Your mother is a cheap whore, but she's definitely not underpriced."

hcueva, why are you so negative all the time? Your head can't be up your ass that deep.

The guy was asking for help burning a DVD image, and you recommended that he buy a new Mac. Stop trying to convince yourself that your purchase was worth it.

Sorry, I get used to being an asshole because so many people here deserve it, i.e. the bitch with the Prince avatar. But you don't deserve it, you're cool.

Apple rules, however.

Yeah sorry, Disk Utility was the prog I was referring to. I don't have my Macbook here at the moment myself so I didn't know the exact name. It crapped out some months ago, for the 2nd time now in a little over a year, and shortly after the standard warranty ended. Sucks...

Roxio does burn ISO files. You shouldn't need to download anything else. And yes, your DVD player should play it just fine (depending on if it's NTSC or PAL).

Search Google a bit, and you'll find more sites like that one.
