Burning CD help -recording procedure?

Hi, well I’m not new to burning data onto cds, but recently upon making a backup of a piece of software I’ve encountered problems in burning the image of the file, which was made in mdf format when ripped off the cd (e.g. used alcohol to make the image). I can mount this image, but whenever I try to burn it I get a cd that can not be used, when installing the data and inserting this cd (which happens to be the 2nd cd required for the installation) it gives me an error, which I attribute to the burning of this cd.

When I test the image of the cd with winrar (testing the archives in the image after mounting it), I don’t get any problems. But after burning it and testing these archives I get an error - so there is definately something wrong with the cd once it is burnt.

When I try to burn the cd with Alcohol 120% I get the following error log:

I’ve tried increasing the options within alcohol 120 to 128mb but it keeps saying the not enough memory message when simulation, hopefully someone can help me.

I’ve tried simulating with nero as well and I get an error too, but it’s not as descriptive as Alcohol.

Is there any reason why you have edited your system report ?
