I don't have a DVD burner on my Mac but I do on my PC.
I want to make a exact copy of my Tiger OS.
Can I do this with my PC?
Do I have to choose .iso?
Do I make an image first & either rename it .iso or create an .iso image if I have the choice?
If I have the .iso then can I burn a straight image?
Do I use Data DVD mode or Mixed Mode?
Do I have to put a check into Bootable CD?


I am using NTI CD & Dvd Maker on a Windows Vista machine.

Create an image of the disc (iso is one of many formats you can use) and then just burn that image to a blank disc. I'm not sure about Tiger, but I know for a fact that Leopard requires a dual layer disc, so you should double check to make sure your DVD burner can do dual layer if it turns out your Tiger disc is dual layer.
