Windows PE Boots off USB, Need it on DVD

I have a custom Windows XP install on a Windows PE USB boot disk. The problem I am having is that my old computer wont boot to USB, so I need it on a DVD.

I tried to make an image of the USB and burn it to a DVD, but no go. Any ideas how to get this to a DVD?

Thanks!!

Just copying the Files from the USB to the CD probably won't work
You need to make the CD bootable
You may have to slipstream it to get the customization done

You can try using the pLop boot manager to get the capabilty to boot from USB. It is included on the UBCD, or on the PartedMagic LiveCD, but you can also get it separately andinstall it to a floppy...:

Use something like Nero - Burning ROM - You can create a bootable CD and point to where your image is - like your bootable USB
