"Does WinISO support bootable CD?"
Yes, WinISO supports bootable CDs perfectly. WinISO can not only could edit a CD image file without destroy its bootable information but can also add bootable information to a CD image file to make it bootable!
thats from there web site... So I was wondering what you guys think this mean... does this means i can take a bunch of files that i want to throw on a cd turn them into an image file and then make that image file bootable? only thing im wondering about that is will I have cd rom drivers loaded this way... cause ill need em to use the cd rom
