IMGBURN equivalent

This appears to be a Windows application only. Is there a free equivalent for Mac (Mavericks)? I want to create a DVD from an existing ISO file.

Trash management

I can see how to delete trash, but I can't see how to view it and restore items selectively. How is this done please? I'm running Mavericks.

I upgraded to Mavericks from 10.6.8 and all that stuff was retained. I lost nothing. But if you did a clean install I would expect you to lose everything, and have to reinstall from a backup...

I don't know - I'm not told. That's the main problem with the iPad - not knowing what it's doing. I have no idea how to set or change the default application.

Will the optical drive on my MBP read a BluRay disk?

And Nick, it is easier for me to find people in the US who are coming down here but have Windows machines, not Macs.

I deleted something by mistake on 10.6.8. It's still there in Trash but how do I find it? I can only see how to remove trash, not how to retrieve an item from trash.
