Yes, you can burn to a DVD.

What is a ".Boz" file and a ".ipo"?

I assume you mean ".tbz2" and ".iso". Windows can deal with both of these file types (WinRAR handles .tbz2 files elegantly).

Define the problem you're having with burning. Just saying "burning wasn't successful" is a bit too ambiguous.

Sorry, you're right, I mean stardust.iso*, but about the .boz thing, it actually was BOZ??! Yeah, retarded, i know.... but no i fixed that. I'm using Mac disk utility to burn stardust.iso onto a dvd-r, and it finished too fast, way to fast to burn anything, telling me: "the device failed to respond properly, unable to recover or retry." I even tried burning it through terminal, typing the command: drutil burn FILE(bla bla bla).. i got the same message. Any help? Thanks for the response. :)

Weird... maybe try Linux or Windows to burn it... or Roxio Toast on the Mac.
