    You can use Daemon Tools to create a virtual dvd-rom drive and mount the image. Your computer should read the file as if you inserted a dvd in the drive. Then you should be able to view it with your dvd software player.

    Without mounting the file, you can use DVD Decrypter to burn the iso under Mode/ISO/Write if the file is under 4.36 GBs.

    If the movie is over 4.36 GBs, you'll need to compress the video so that it will fit onto a blank dvd-r. You can use a free app, DVD Shrink to compress it.

    Keep in mind the manufacturers of the discs advertise them as [bold]4.7 GB[/bold]. This isn't true because they use a different mathematical formula for calculating that amount. 1 GB is approximately 1024 MB whereas the manufacturers use 1000 MB in their calculations.

    Here's a site with several guides to choose from to help you get started:
