Can anybody tell me how to make a bootable CD under OS 9 burning software? I have tried creating a disk image and then burning that to CDR. No matter what I do, I just can not make it bootable.

Thanks!

Ron

The CD needs a valid system folder. (Such as the OS 9 system folder.) No disk images are needed.

I am trying to make back-up copies of my original OS cd’s. It will not boot after I burn a copy.

That's weird. I have a burned 9.2.1 CD, and I can boot off it no problem.

If you can get your hands on Toast (either Adaptec or Roxio), you can burn a bootable disc.

You can't burn a Bootable CD in the Finder (read DiscBurner) as if can only make HFS+ CDs, which are not bootable.

Toast can make HFS CDs with "blessed" System folders with a minimum of fuss.

If you are trying to copy an existing CD, then see this thread: Burning a CD from a Hybrid CD. CD Type is different, but process for duplication is exactly the same.
