    Question 10.04.1: Can't burn ISO to USB drive

    Hey, everyone!

    I downloaded the LiveCD of Lucid to install it on my old notebook (which currently has *shudder* Winblows XP). The downloaded ISO passed the md5 check, but I can't burn it.

    I am using Lucid on a netbook right now, and it has no internal CD burner. So, I'm using an external CD/DVD burner via a USB connection.

    Ubuntu recognizes that there is a blank disc in there, but there is no "Burn to disc..." option in the right-click menu. The instructions here tell me to use this method. Please help?

    If you are using Lucid are you using System->Administration->Startup Disk Creator to do this?

    No. I was following the instructions on the download site. It gives instructions for burning it in Ubuntu, but it doesn't mention the startup disk creation tool.

    Edit: I attempted to burn the image just now using the create startup disk tool. The tool immediately found the image file, but it is not displaying the blank disc in the external drive. Ubuntu knows it's there and is blank, because it asked me what to do with it when I inserted it.

    Open Brasero and try it. It's the bottom option.

    Not on my computer it's not. LOL That's not an available option, either.

    Yeah, that's the problem: "Burn to disc..." isn't there.

    Okay, I got it burned. I installed Brasero from the repositories, and then a Brasero option appeared in the right-click menu. Burned fine after that, so I'm changing this to "solved." Thanks for the help!

    One odd thing I noticed, however, is that the Brasero Disc Copier works, but the Brasero Disc Burner exits immediately upon launch. Any ideas what might be causing this?
