Use Rufus and create a bootable USB disk. It's faster.

HTH,

Agree with Dan Cracium as it is faster than CD

But if you want you dont have a USB in your hardware or you want CD particularly you can use PowerISO to create bootable CD. Check this

I tried PowerISO but it wouldn't boot.  

I selected the file and hit burn.

The file got on to the CD but wouldn't boot.

You can't simply burn anything on a disk and expect to boot from it.

Usually you would put DOS on it, but looks like FileScavanger is Windows only, so you need some form of Windows running.
