You need to check an option in your burining program. It depends on the one you use. Look into the options for a cd and you should find it.

If you do a 1-to-1 copy it should work just like the original.

Sorry I was confused.
The closest option I found in Easy CD creator was the file menu option:
Create CD Hard Disk Image

Which writes the CD project to a CD image file (*.cif).
But I don't think this is what you are looking for. What I had pointed to before was a way to burn the iso onto a disk.
