I was unable to make a bootable CD using the Create Bootable Rescue Media portion of True Image home. I have a PlexWriter Premium CD burner. It would also not work on my Plextor PX-708A CD/DVD burner. True Image made an ISO image very quickly, and I was fairly easily able to make a boot disk using Nero 7 Burning ROM using the ISO disk function. The disk boots and gives me the True Image Home menu. Just posting this to help anyone else having this problem, and curious as to why this would be, since I purchased this product with the idea that it uses DVD or CD drives without any additional software. I now will need to test if the program can make backups using these drives.
