ISO is a image of a cd. It wont help to copy the file to the cd. It will give you 1 file in stead of all the files in it.

Try using the cdwriting software that came with your drive (eg Nero) and open the ISO image as you would with any saved document. You'll then see all the files that would be written onto your disk. Click on Burn or Write and you should have a normal disk.

When using your Nero burner, choose burn image...that will do.

I used nero and burned the cd...this resulted in the whole iso image being copied in the cd (one .iso file only)

Then i extracted that file and copied the extracted contents (3 folders i think) on the disk...still it did'nt work

Do we have to tell nero that we want to make a bootable cd..or shd we just make data disc

Apparently you are copying the ISO, not burning it into an image file.

Here is what I did.

1. D/L each ISO file and place it in a save place.

2. Run Nero--> Goto File and select burn image--> a pop up box should show where your ISO files are.

3. Select any one of the ISO file.

4. Click on burn and Let it rip!..

Think of an iso as a zip file of a CD's contents.

iso burning

in nero there is an option burn ISO somewhere in the menu, there isn't anything you can do wrong, after buring if you see that there is only one file (yes, the iso file) you managed in some way to do it wrong)

I had a hard time finding it too, you don't find write iso to disk (or something like that) in the newer interface of Nero, you do find it in the older interface (the windows explorer look alike-interface) if you have found that interface, just go trough all of the menus and somewhere there is an option write ISO to disk or write iso file. I think it's in the first menu if I remember well

In Nero 5.x, it was under the "File" toolbar as "Burn Image." In Nero 6.x, they changed it to the "Tools" menu, I believe, but it has the same name. Do not simply burn it as a data CD.

I found out that using Easy CD Creator 4.5 with WindblowsME is eaiser to burn iso's then nero is. Why??? I don't know it just does what you tell it. Very rare for software on windblows machines!!
