You should make complete ISO image of a disk, than burn it on DVD.

If you create an ISO image from the files it will not boot. You need to burn the original ISO image without modifications or make a 1:1 copy of the DVD (together with all the boot information). I know about serveral unsuccessful attempts to make a SUSE DVD bootable with Nero.

actually using NERO to copy a DVD WILL work -- you don't need to make an ISO first - provided you are copying THE ORIGINAL DVD.

If you've only got 1 DVD device then Nero will make an image anyway on disk and then write it to your new DVD.

The boot info etc will be fine.

If you do it manually -- i.e you've extracted all the files of the DVD on to Disk and now you want to create a new bootable DVD you will need to extract the boot sector (do it with something like ISOBUSTER) and then set in Nero in the boot options something like Set Boot Emulation to NONE, and Nr of sectors to 4 --anything else won't work. Set the boot image to the boot sector you extracted with ISOBUSTER.

Cheers

-K
