    Not in home folder either. Did search file system.
    Hopefully I don't have 700mb of junk unmounted away in some obscure nook.
    I don't know how it got mounted either. That's how it appeared after the download was complete.

    Well, for it to have been mounted you must have downloaded it to somewhere
    Set the Firefox options to always ask you where to download things to. That way you know where everythings gone.

    OOps-- spoke too soon. I changed a parameter in the search (noticed it was set to zero days). As you suggested, it yielded the "raw CD" file in the /tmp folder. Now I've got to brush up on how to get into that....

    That's the one
    Change the settings in Firefox to ask you where to download things to, or to always go to the Downloads folder.
    I must admit to not knowing how to get to that file now, unless /tmp appears in the navigation menu within Brasero?

    The file probably got mounted because when you clicked the download link you selected "open with" instead of just download. Then the file is downloaded to /tmp and mounted, placing a drive icon on your desktop.

    Just browse to /tmp in brasero's "select image" browser (filesystem-->/tmp), or copy the file to your desktop:
    Code:
    cp /tmp/filename ~/Desktop

    So far so good. Brasero can find tmp file in "file system". Am burning as I write. One drawback, Brasero options allow write speed of minimum 10x, higher than recommended. But this is close enough for a try.
    Cheers, Quackers, and thanks for tips.

    Hmm, check the md5sum of the iso file after

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

    Or at least check the disc for errors. Boot from the disc and at the first purple screen press any key. Then choose your language and on the next screen select "check for errors". If any errors are found the disc is no good.
