The "C" key tells the computer to start up the internal optical drive. This
doesn't work with an external device.

Try holding down the Option key at startup. You'll come to a screen that
will allow you to select from any available bootable volume (internal or
FireWire external). At that screen click the volume's icon you want to boot
from and click the continue arrow.
