Are you trying to burn a program, file, pic, music or ISO image ?

Need to know:
1. what O/S (XP, Vista, W7)?
2. what do you mean by "burn a image onto a disc"? what is the file ext (.iso, .jpg,??)
3. is the disc to be made bootable? (depends what it is you are burning to disc)
4. what sort of disc, CD-R or DVD-R?
5. what burning programs do you already have?
6. Is the disc to be used on a pc or to watch/view on TV? (if pictures/slideshow/movie...)

As many details as you can would be helpful.

If the program is installed on the pc, then you cannot just copy/burn the executable file as parts of it will be installed in different places on the pc as well as the registry.. Not sure what you mean by "no image" ! Can you give more details please ?

I don't understand what you are trying to achieve. The info you give is too sketchy to be able to guess.

To me, the reference to 'image' means an .iso file

Maybe if you tell us what the program is it would help.
I am lost.

Are you sure you mean 'Bootable'?
or do you mean you want it to run when you insert the DVD (Autoplay)
