Hello
I have a win xp live cd. I would like to change something in this cd. The thing is I did an nrg image of this cd with nero and copied it into a hard disk. Then I converted this image into an iso file. After that, I extracted the iso file into a folder and added a new file in this folder by means of a windows explorer window. Then I used nero again to build a new data cd with the extracted content of the original cd that included the new file that I added.
Why is the new cd non bootable? I hoped it would be bootable considering it was copied from a bootable one.

Any idea?
Thanks

coping does not place files in the correct locations. It takes boot files in the boot zone of the cd to boot. Nero has the option of making a bootable cd.

... I use MagicIso for that sort of thing like injecting/removing files to/from iso image ....etc...and it'll still be bootable, most "os" handy tool!

... or there's this: nliteos (freeware)

thanks mavis007, "injecting/removing files" was what I was looking for.
