Bootable CD feature is not working properly

Recommended Posts

When I create a WinImage file of a bootable floppy disk and try to create a bootable CD, pointing CdBurner XP 4.0.013.220 to my .ima file, then CDBurner XP accepts the file and says that the compilation will be bootable. However, after burning the CD I have to find that it is not bootable. (Note that I did not burn any other files on the CD, in other words, the compilation itself is empty. The CD should only contain the section with the bootable image. I am not sure whether this section is there, but as a matter of fact, the completed CD is not bootable.

Note that I used to do the same with CDBurner XP Pro 3, and it worked like a charm. In other words, I am not making a concept-related mistake. I just want my bootable floppy burnt to CD-ROM in a manner that makes the CD-ROM bootable with 1.44MB floppy emulation.

Why is your "burning library" not under your control? Because it is part of Visual Basic? Do you imply that Microsoft Visual Basic has unfixed bugs that are so grave that it is not possible to burn bootable CDs with it? If so, you may have chosen the wrong platform for version 4.0. It did work with 3.x after all.

and buy a software!

What have you smoked? I am reporting a bug in this software, and your reply is to buy a software? I am aware that there is nothing to be demanded from a free project, but then again, the makers of CDBurner XP appear dedicated to fix their bugs (except Flo, who rather blames it all on the libraries as an excuse not to care about it). That is why there is even a dedicated bug forum, even though I accentally posted this in the General Discussion forum. And I did nothing but report this bug.

Either way, if the bootable CD function of CDBurner XP is not working and you are not willing or able to fix it for whatever reason, then you should at least remove the option from the program so that people see that it cannot be done rather than wasting their empty CD-R media on fruitless attempts.
