Setup disk? I'm not sure I understand. What, exactly, are you trying to burn to DVD?

You need to first make an ISO image of WinXP CD using PowerISO or WinISO software. Then if you want you can add more stuff in the ISO, save it.
Now use ImageBurn software to burn the image to DVD.

Have you tried just copying the CD to DVD, using whatever burn program you use?

Incompatible Medium Installed means your DVD RW Drive is not able to write to your DVD. Your DVD writer is not capable of writing to this kind of media. Some DVD writers cannot see DVD-R or DVD+R. Have you tried another brand's DVD's? What are the specifications, model and brand of your DVD writer?

Good post Romeo

I had to try it myself and I am an imgburn beta tester, it was going to let me burn a cd iso to a dvd

Free Space: 736,958,464 bytes

Looks like that iso will barely fit on a cd

Optorite went out of business long ago and that drive and firmware are almost 5 years old so it's unlikely it would see any modern dvd blanks

Use a blank cd and burn at 8x

Good luck
Chewy

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
