HD DVD lost the format war to Blue-ray years ago

So with all this in mind, how can I do with a 15 gb iso file?

Sorry I meant to say what can I do with a 15 gb iso file. Could it be possible to interface my pc or external Hard drive with a blue ray dvd recorder?

that its daemon tools lite that you need, it's the free version

Thank you Thalmus. I take it then that this daemon tools lite program will allow me to open the iso file on my C:/ drive?

It creates a virtual optical drive on your computer which you then can mount your iso image onto and run just like a physical disk

I'll try mounting it. I previously tried to burn it using Nero burning rom, but nero never read the virtual drive.

Image is mounted but nothing is happening. Do I still have to burn it? It recomends burning using Astroburn.
