Windows 7 ships out the box the ability to burn an ISO directly to CD by right clicking the ISO and selecting “Burn Disc Image” but what if “Burn Disc Image” is missing?

This is because the Windows Disc Image  program needs to be associated with the IMG and ISO file extensions, when I had installed Winzip it had taken the default association of these two file types and the feature had stopped working.

by selecting “Change Program” I was able to re-associate the extensions to the Windows Disc Image Burner.

now when I right click on an ISO I get this option.
