To burn a bootable CD, you need the right files, image, whatever. I don't think it is a function of the burning SW....
To the OP:
Check you CD to be sure it has multiple files. If it has one file (*.iso), then you just copied the file to the CD. You need to find the option in your burning SW to "create from .iso" or something like that.
If the CD is OK, then make sure you can boot from some other CD---eg a Windows install disk, Live linux, etc.
