I just got my Diskwarrior CD and wanted to make a backup. It's a bootable CD (That's the only way you can use Diskwarrior) so in SuperDuper I made sure to copy all files and copied from the mounted CD to a disk image. Then I used Disk Utility to burn the disk image.

Doesn't boot. :(

What procedure should I use to make a genuine copy of this CD? Being bootable is part of it as this backup disk is useless if it isn't bootable.

Thanks

We don't support optical media, rbanzai. If you want to make a copy of the CD, use Disk Utility to create a "CD/DVD Master", then burn that.
