Is it possible to burn a CD iso to a blank DVD ?

Hi,

Id like to know if its possible to copy a CD to ISO image and then burn that image onto a blank DVD instead of a blank CD.

The CD is a bootable rescue disk for backups. I just want to copy it, but instead of on a blank CD, id like to copy it onto a blank DVD. Reason - Im on the outskirts of the city and dont have access to blank cds at the moment but have loads of blank DVDs lying around.

Thanks

Re: Is it possible to burn a CD iso to a blank DVD ?

No, i actually tried and it didn't work. After that only did i decide to ask here because i couldn't find anything specific to this nature of problem on google. Nero rejects the blank disk saying "this disk is not suitable for burning this project, please insert the correct type of disk" etc.

Its only after i tried different combinations, copy a DVD, copy a CD, etc. It makes the .nrg image file, but then its unable to burn it onto the DVD by citing the above error.

I read your link and incidentally have even tried WinISO before posting for suggestions. The CD is actually a bootable CD, its a rescue media disk. So win iso was able to make the iso. But Nero burn program rejects the blank disk saying its not a right type of disk.

But i havent tried that SET BOOK DISK option. But i dont have a separate .BIF file. How do i get it ?

Re: Is it possible to burn a CD iso to a blank DVD ?

Im using Win XP not windows 7. My business PC is a bit of a dinosaur. So anyway i did this successfully and to recap how, I took an image using CDBurnerXP software. Its a free program. I made an ISO and then burnt that ISO using the same program and it worked. Weird how a 'name' program like Nero couldn't do this.
