Q. How can I burn a DVD of an ISO file using a beta build of Windows Vista?

If you can't get your 3rd party DVD writer to work properly in the beta builds of Windows Vista, try using DVDburn.exe.

The syntax for using dvdburn.exe is:

dvdburn <DVDdriveletter:> <Path to ISO file>


dvdburn E: D:\Vista\vista_5744.16384.061003-1945_x86fre_client-LRMCFRE_EN_DVD.iso
