I’m trying to create a bootable CD. To that end, I’ve
- installed a 3.5" floppy disk drive in my Dell E310 machine.
- used XP Pro to create a MS-DOS startup diskette
- Downloaded and installed Nero 22.214.171.124 and the NeroBurningRom_ug_eng.pdf file.
- the installed drive is an Optiarc DVD±RW ND-3570A
- the media is an unbranded CD-R that came with an eMachines W3400 box for use in creating recovery CDs. They burned fine for that purpose. NOTE: The CD-R I’m using was not previously recorded.
I believe I’m following the instructions correctly. It seems straightforward. But I’m getting the following errors:
Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
Error reading file COMPOSEDFILE
Cache writing failed.
Caching of files failed
I’ve attached the log file.
A CD-R is correct media to use, isn’t it? A CD-R is essentially a CD-ROM except it is not a mass-produced pre-recorded item?
Is there a document that someone can reference that compares and contrasts the various CD formats? I found one for DVDs, but not for CDs.
