After 7 failed attempts to burn a bootable SpinRite CD I'd better start looking for help :)

First, what are the actual file names that are supposed to be on the bootable CD? I've generated the ISO file from the Windows UI and then used that file with several different burning utilities. I'll either end up with a spinrite.iso OR a spinrite.exe file alone on the CD. What am I supposed to see?

Second, I just want to clarify that I don't need to create the ISO file on the same machine that I want to run SpinRite on. I'm trying to run SpinRite on my laptop (which is bluescreening) so I'm creating the ISO file on my desktop. This is totally normal, correct?

I'm having the most success with the CD images that result in a spinrite.exe file. These CDs actually boot through the FreeDOS screen and into the SpinRite 6 splash screen with the 'Loading...' text. The problem is that it hangs on this screen (I've waited a half hour). The text along the top is "Rereading SpinRite's file image for viral analysis".

I'd be happy to provide specs, but I don't think I'm quite that far yet.

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Thanks for your cooperation.
