well everyone know vista sucks including me. i burned DBAN iso file to a NEW writeable disc but it wont get me into the DBAN menu. The system just ignores that the disc is even there...i am 100% the boot order is correct i checked it many times...if any one can help i will be so happy.
When you download dban, it should be an ISO file, not a RAR. If you have WinRAR installed, it probably changed it's file association to a RAR, but it is still an ISO. Don't use WinRar to extract it.
In ImgBurn, you select the first option "Write image file to disc". At the top of the window you must browse to the .ISO.
If it is not allowing you to start the burn process because of "Device Not Ready" you either don't have a new blank disc inserted, something else is trying to use the disc (windows is wanting to burn something to it) or you have a problem with your drive.
