To create a bootable cd:

Also you can use Nero http://www.nero.com

Just create a new bootable cd with nero and then drag the files from the usb flash to nero compilation, then burn it.

If its windows follow these steps.

few steps to create a bootable cd with nero.

1. Install nero
2. Create a CD-ROM (Bootable)
3. Check the advanced settings box. Leave the values as they are (if it's a windows boot cd they must be changed)
4. The image should be C:\Archivos de programa\Nero\Nero 7\Core\DosBootimage.IMA (default)
5. Drag the files from the usb flash to nero compilation.
6. Burn it.

1. Extract the ima file from the usb flash with winimage (http://www.winimage.com/winimage.htm)

Then follow those steps to burn the cd.
