I'm not that familiar with how Win7 does it. It is quite possible that it
just copied the iso file to the CD--so that if you mount the CD, you'd see
nothing but the iso file.
it seems that you can't burn an image with Windows built in tools (judging
from the Notes section at the bottom).
The best thing to do is google the distribution you're planning to install
with terms like
burn ubuntu cd from iso in windows
or the like. Trying the one above gives
to indicate that despite that other article, you might be able to use the
Windows tools. Unfortunately, I'm just guessing, because I don't have a
Windows machine to test any of it.
