I often need to create bootable CDs and DVDs but it's weird because I frequently end up buring myself a new coaster instead. It's not that the process is difficult, just that nero has a few too many options and I forget which ones to choose and end up picking the wrong one. I figured that the best way to avoid this mistake in future would be to write the steps down. Choose a Nero Source - you'll usually find them somewhere like this Click the button marked New Add any files you want but don't try to add operating system files. You don't need to add Command.
