    I also recommend Imgburn. Just open the program(Imgburn), Click Write Image file to disc, Select the file, set write speed to 4x, Click Write.

    Is there something wrong with the default windows image burner in win7/8.x?

    Normally not! But: you could not limit the writing speed, which may results in unusable outcome and the burned Media could not be used! Also no any options!

    with XP you used to be able to right click the cdr/dvd drive and go properties >- recording and set the speed. I haven't looked on 8.1 dunno about 7 atm either.

    That's not a way a normal apps should working!! It's true that you could do many thinks on not usual ways which isn't everything but normal!

    I don't believe I've seen an error from buffer underrun since the xp and earlier days.
    There's not really any benefit to lowering the write speed these days.

    It's maybe depend on the Media used?! Princo for example, has a lot problems so as no brand medias! I talk about the medias available in Thailand!!

    Just to some test, I burned Debian 7.5 to DVD's using the Windows 8.1 internal burner and could NOT start the installation from it neither booting! Used IMGBURN with 2,4 speed and all went well! Beside of that, NO error given by the internal burner, means no Buffer Underrun! Media used for that both Ridata! As it could be a foulty Media, I done the same with RW' from Ridata and the outcome was the same, used Windows burner (which used 4x) not booting and used after full erase the same media with IMGBURN (2.4x) and works!

    Now could you tell me WHY?:cool:

    I have used a lot of burners and burnt a lot of boot cd's and dvd's in my experience it depends on the burner accuracy with writing and reading it is not always the same with different burners !! so maybe if you have a lot of problems use a low write speed and if you want to for sure that it also will work on different systems :)

    Maybe you haven't understand that I used the same computer with the same burner! Those burners are just fine and I could use burned medias in any other machine and they're working well.

    Difference is only the software used:
    • Widows internal Burner Apps
    • IMGBurn, a Freeware Apps
    Understood? Thanks.

    I always use default burner speed, but if you have issues, try a lower speed like 8 or 4x or convert the .iso to usb installer.

    If you used DVDs from a reputable manufacturer and got errors after multiple tries, throw your burner into a trash can (don't, it hurts the environment!) and get a new one.

    No need to spend any money on the big brands in burningsoftware if you simply need to burn an ISO.
    I've used Imgburn for as long as I can remember and burned more ISO's then I care to remember.
    And not a single one has failed...

    I totally agree. In the distant past, using XP, I had plenty of buffer errors. Since Windows7/ Linux, none that I can remember, and I use el-cheap-o dvd/cd media with different dvd burners. I also use ImgBurn with Windows, with verify after burn.
