Any error messages or other kind of output? Have you checked the md5 sums of the ISO files? Are you burning them as ISOs or as plain files?

Well, that is unusual because when I did use XP I had no problems. But what you might want to try is going through the pull down menus and see if there is something that is about making a boot disk. That usually worked for me, but I can't remember what the selections are as that it has been since 2002 I used XP.

Or when all else fails...read the directions that came with your software. If your CDRW/DVDRW came with Nero (as mine did) and there was no instructions that were any good then you might want to go onto Nero's own website and see if there is a FAQ on creating boot disks from .iso files.

I just realized another option...if none of what I suggested works...have a friend of yours do it on their machine and they can give you the disks back.

DO NOT FORGET TO BACKUP YOUR DATA before you use those disks on that machine, unless you want to install Linux on another machine.

Hi,

thanks for the quick reply

Not even getting that far.

I try and open them by using the browse for file in nero and no correct file types show when I point it to the folder that is storing the downloaded iso file

There should be a burn image option or something similar. I can't tell you exactly where to find it 'cause I haven't used Nero in a long time. Be sure to use burn image, if you burn it any other way you'll be making a new coaster.
