Why? Is your mouse broken? Should I move this to hardware?

You have to burn it to disc as a bootable ISO image.

Pardon my ignorance, but what does that have to do with an inability to click 'ok'? It appears to me that rjlanh2 already realizes that it the image needs to be burned to a disk, otherwise they would have asked how to burn an image, not ask a question about software used to burn CDs. Am I missing something?

Just thought the post suggested an anability to burn the image to disc. Thought the link may provide a walkthrough of alternative and a freeware software to use.

I can agree with that. Not sure what is causing the inability at this point. :thumbsup: Maybe never will either.

I had the same problem with InfraRecorder on WXP. Turned out the user I was logged in as didn't have privilege to burn CDs. I logged out and logged in as admin. Then the OK button was enabled and the image burned fine.
