It seems you are using BurnCDCC for burning. BurnCDCC is used to burn ISO image files on to the CD/DVD. But, it seems like you are trying to burn an exe file using BurnCDCC, and that's why it might be showing the error. If that's not what you are doing, please explain more as to what you are doing.

Yes Anupam I am using BurnCDCC, all I am attempting to do is make a recovery disk for safe keeping. I have not tried this before, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
