I assume that you have made a custom version of UBCD v4.11 with slax.

You can try to update isolinux to the last version (v3.71 for the moment):

Download the syslinux package from http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/.
Extract the syslinux archive to "c:\syslinux\".

To update isolinux for the CD version
- Copy "c:\syslinux\isolinux.bin" to "c:\ubcd\isolinux\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\menu\menu.c32" to "c:\ubcd\isolinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\modules\chain.c32" to "c:\ubcd\isolinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\memdisk\memdisk" to "c:\ubcd\isolinux\"

To update syslinux for the bootable USB key
- Copy "c:\syslinux\ldlinux.sys" to "c:\ubcd\syslinux\").
- Copy "c:\syslinux\mbr\mbr.bin" and "c:\syslinux\ldloader.bss" to "c:\ubcd\tools\ubcd2usb\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\menu\menu.c32" to "c:\ubcd\syslinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\modules\chain.c32" to "c:\ubcd\syslinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\memdisk\memdisk" to "c:\ubcd\syslinux\"

Remaster the CD with the batch file ubcd2iso.bat
Quote:
Usage: UBCD2ISO (UBCD-path) (output-image) [params]

Example: UBCD2ISO "c:\ubcd" "c:\ubcd.iso"
(UBCD extracted in dir 'c:\ubcd', ISO image written to 'c:\ubcd.iso')

If you mean the original slax CD:
Update /boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin
Update the /boot/syslinux/ directory (all files exept for lilo and syslinux.cfg)

Remaster the slax iso.
Run /slax/make_iso.bat with the right parameters.
Quote:
usage: make_iso.bat c:\new-slax.iso


Try to burn this iso with Image Burn or InfraRecorder (freeware):
Instructions (also for Nero): http://iso.snoekonline.com/iso.htm.

You also burn the CD at a lower speed, to avoid write errors.
