I have a macbook pro 13" with OS X Lion 10.7.5. My main objective recently is to get my CAC card reader to work and actually be recognized on my mac. I tried everything i could think of to get it to work. Nothing. SO...since the CAC card reader is mainly for Windows i found out that i can run windows on my mac and decided to do so.. Blah blah...

So i downloaded an .iso file of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and used disk utility to burn it to a DVD. It said it was successful. I went into boot camp, downloaded the support software, success.I reinserted the DVD and for some reason i got the pop up stating that the disc I just inserted was blank when i knew it wasnt because i double checked and disc utility tells me that its not. Well when i got to the install part, bootcamp came back with a message stating "installer disc could not be found." I would like to know a few things:

 

If you can help get the CAC reader to work i'd appreciate it.but

What windows do i need? 32- or 64-bit? Can it be an iso? Or do I have to convert it to a bootable DVD.? Ive read the boot camp instructions but they really werent any help.

Most of my questions are based on things i found while searching for answers only to get more questions.Anyone? Step-by-step would really help. And possible things i may encounter with solutions. Ive been at this for days and I'd rather not beat around the bush anymore, if you know what i mean.
