    Do NOT use WinRAR to extract the file. WinRAR cannot read it. The file is
    an ISO file, which needs burning to DVD. Use the 'burn image' function in
    your burning program. The iso can also be mounted in Daemon Tools.

    does it not have to be extracted at all first?

    No, it does not need extracting. It is a full iso image. To burn with
    Nero, use StartSmart, Copy and Backup tab, then select Burn DVD Image. Or
    by using the full Nero Burning ROM, close any wizards, then on the Recorder
    tab, select Burn Image. Nero will write the image direct to DVD. Burn at
    the lowest speed possible, and finalize the disc.

    I hope Richard Urban reads this thread. He just tried to tell me it was
    virtually impossible for this to occur!

    I wonder how this happened?

    If anyone uses WinRAR to 'open' the Vista DVD, then all they will see is the
    readme text file. They will NOT see the full contents of the .iso, as
    WinRAR cannot handle the UDF file system.
