Thanks, have now managed to download the file. I now have 2 files, 1st is V28.mdf and the other is V28.mds. Do I just burn these two files to a CD now?

Cheers

you use ultraiso or alcohol120 to "open" the image, then burn to cd, do not just copy the files onto a blank cd, that will not work.

UltraIso IMHO is rubbish - it is fine for copying ISO images to your HDD but useless for burning those images to a CD/DVD (For me, at least...). Use Alcohol 120% at the slowest possible burn speed - thats worked fine for me for 2 years. Make sure that both of your mdf & mds files are in a unique folder on your PC. Open Alcohol & select that folder under "Image Burn". Initially you will only see the mdf file displayed - which may cause you concern - but Alcohol will automatically burn both the mdf & mds files to a CD-R & "Presto" - you have a useable V28 CD.....

Horses for courses

I have used ultraiso for all my cd based images without a problem...both reading and writing (CD and DVD), and imgburn to write all my dvd based images, and had zero failures.

Go with what you like

ccf1: Perhaps you can help me then. The "Burn" function on my UltraIso programme does nothing - not even an error message. When I click on it absolutely nothing happens. Needless to say, this causes considerable frustration in having to save the UltraIso DVD image to the HDD then use Alcohol to burn that image!

Where have I gone wrong - as surely I have, if you can burn...

The burn button works for me, you have the full version right.
