BURNING ISOs

Here is a short and easy one; in the previous post you learned how to do checksums, so now we can burn them to CD.


In Linux:

CODE
$ cdrecord --scanbus

( this will give you a 3 digit number like 0,1,0 )
NOTE: Since kernel 2.6 the above command changed, see: CDrecord and kernel 2.6

CODE
$ cdrecord dev=0,1,0 downloaded.iso

That´s all, really that´s all !




In Windows: ( ALL ) with Nero 5:
file --> burn CD image ( don´t use that stupid wizard ! )


In Windows: ( ALL ) with Nero 6:
1. Launch the "Nero Burning ROM" (regular version, not the wizard) portion of the program.
2. Select from the menu: Recorder > Burn Image.
3. Use the default options and burn the CD.

NOTE: See for other ( free ) burning tools: Windows Tools: Burning ISOs


If after burning you can see a lot of files ( README   *tip ! ) and directories you´ll know your CD is fine !

If after burning you see only one file; the downloaded.iso you´ve clearly done something wrong and can use the CD as a coaster !
