Ubuntu – Problem in burning a DVD and getting the iso file

13.04

I just downloaded the Ubuntu 13.04 OS(32-bit) desktop version. It is a Zip file, i extracted the contents of it and burned it into DVD. But i cannot see the iso file, and how to make it bootable. Please help with this because i really want to try it out.
And i am using Windows 7 right now.
