dont want dvd format - want iso

…i am trying to make an ubuntu iso on a usb stick via a win10 computer but after the download it makes it a dvd drive … i think i am being stupid here haha

Hello @rickshawallah, welcome to the forums!

To prevent the downloaded iso file from launching as a DVD drive in Win 10, avoid clicking on it in your browser after it downloads or double clicking on it in a File Explorer window. Instead, launch balenaEtcher and click on “Flash from file” then select the downloaded iso. Then choose your USB stick by clicking “Select target” and finally “Flash!”

thank you for that ! - very helpful ! best o
