Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My compaq computer won't make a boot disc, and I can't burn a disc either. Same with my toshiba Tecra, even with an external DVD burner. What am I doing wrong ?


Answers :

Are you using an ISO file that you downloaded from the internet? If so, you are probably burning the file instead of burning a CD/DVD *FROM* the iso file. Try using CDBurnerXP, it works the best for me.
Try using a third party software like nero burner or try installing other dvd rom
