UltraISO has built-in function to burn a CD image on Nero,  but you can use other burning software on your computer to burn it as well.

The method you use will depend on which CD writing software package you use. It's a good idea to consult the CD writing software's documentation before you start, because if you make a mistake you'll probably have to throw the disc out and start again.

 

BURNING GUIDE WITH NERO (.NRG, .CUE/.BIN, .ISO)

  1. Open Nero and click 'Cancel' if 'Create CD' window opens
  2. Choose File---> Burn Image. Version 5.5.9.9 and above have support for .CUE files, too. On versions under 5.5.9.9 you need to select 'all files (*.*)'
  3. Open the image file.
  4. If the image type is .ISO and a popup 'Foreign Image file' opens BE CAREFUL: the .ISO is non-standard and you are at very high risk to burn a coaster. In this case choose 'Correct', select 'Data Mode 1' by default and 'Data Mode 2' if you know you're dealing with PSX, PS2, Video CD or Mixed Mode CD (data+audio). Also choose 'RAW data' ('Block size' = 2352 should set automatically).
  5. Set the proper write speed (as low as possible for PSX and VCD). All other settings should be 'Write' 'Finalize CD' 'Justlink/Burnproof', Choose 'Disc-At-Once' if available, then click on 'Write'

Q: How to Overburn with Nero?

BURNING GUIDE WITH Roxio Easy CD Creator (.CIF, .ISO)

  1. Insert a blank CD into the CD writer.
  2. Launch Easy CD Creator.
  3. In the File menu, select "Create CD From Disk Image".
  4. Browse to the location where the ISO image was saved on the hard drive.
  5. Select ISO from File Type.
  6. Select the ISO image file.
  7. Click on OK.
  8. Click on OK once again.

 



BURNING GUIDE WITH CLONE CD (.CCD/.IMG/.SUB set)

  1. Open CloneCD
  2. Click the second button (Write From Image File)
  3. Click 'Browse' and load the .CCD file, then 'Next'
  4. The next screen is tricky. Depending upon the icon you choose, CloneCD activates some write options that, on some CDs, may help copying the protection scheme. Try choosing among the default settings or look on the net for the proper settings if you know you're dealing with a protected CD (laserlock, safedisc etc.)
  5. OK will activate burning.

 



BURNING GUIDE WITH ALCOHOL 120% (nearly all image types)

  1. Open Alcohol 120%
  2. Click on 'Image Burning Wizard'
  3. Push 'Browse' then load the proper file(.CUE, .CCD, .ISO) file.
  4. Now you should see the info of the loaded image. Push 'next'.
  5. On the next screen check that your recorder is shown. Look at the 'Datatype' drop-down menu:
  6. Change the 'Datatype' drop-down menu according to the protection you detected on the original CD (or image). In this example we set 'Playstation' since the CD is a PSX CD. You'll notice that this setting automatically changes Write Method from DAO/SAO to RAW DAO and deselects 'rectify Sub-Channel Data'. Different Datatypes will activate different settings.
  7. The write speed is set accordingly to your system resources. Just avoid burning at high speed for PSX CDs (since PSX CD-ROM sucks). Click 'Start' to start burning.
  8. On the next screen you are able to keep track of the burning process. Avoid using too many system resources during the burning process.
  9. A popup will inform you at the ending of the burning. The Backup CD has been completed!

 



BURNING GUIDE WITH CDRWin (.CUE/.BIN or .CUE/.IMG sets)

  1. Open CDRWin.
  2. Do not try to unlock CDRWin with illegal codes found on the net: the program will seem to unlock in any case but it will burn coasters if the code is not correct.
  3. Click the first button 'Record Disc'
  4. Click 'Load Cuesheet' button and load the proper .CUE file. Please note that if you receive errors maybe the image path written on the .CUE might be uncorrect. In this case open the .CUE file with Notepad and check that on the 1st row (FILE "...." BINARY) the correct path of the image (the large file that came with the .CUE) is written. Otherwise, correct it.
  5. If you can, click on the 'RAW Mode' button. This is not always necessary, except when the CD is protected. All other options are left blank.
  6. Click on 'Start Recording'.
