Specs: Windows XP, 2.992 GHz / 1014 MB
I have the Windows XP Professional files on a USB because i copied the files from my CD to my USB in case one day my CD wont work. So i was wondering if i could make a copy of it in a clean CD?

Yes, you can, but:
1) make it bootable
2) burn at very slow speed

If you have the XP CD, why not just make another copy rather than messing with the USB? And I assume by USB you mean a flash drive? Do you realize that you can NOT use it to reinstall XP without proper preparation?

I think it is unlikely you copied all the files needed and in the correct order.

The proper way to save a cd is with some image or iso format.


It may be possible to get MS's boot floppies and then point to the files in the setup program.
