Problems with cd-rw


Recommended Posts

Have an older Dell laptop w/win-xp sp3.  Trying to do a backup to a usb hard drive before wiping hard disk.

I made cd of Redo Backup and Recovery .exe, but it will not boot from the cd.  Installed the .exe on a usb stick but it will not boot either.  I put the win-xp cd in the drive and it boots.  Why won't the computer boot with the other media?

What did you use to burn the ISO image?


The file is:  redobackup-livecd-1.0.4.iso and is about 250MB


If you look on the CD you burned do you see just that file or hundreds of files?   If  you only see 1 file then that is the reason.  You did not burn it as an ISO image but as a data file which it's not.
