How did you burn the disk? Did you just copy the file to it (won't work) or did you use proper image burning software (e.g. ImgBurn)?

you did not burn the disc correctly, the analog of what you did is putting a file on a flash drive and expecting it to boot.

You need to 'burn' the image to a dvd.
use imgburn: http://www.imgburn.com/

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.

Presumably you're not trying to reuse the disk that you've already burned? Anyway, why waste a Blu-Ray disk on this; use a cheap recordable CD or DVD.
