View Full Version : Having trouble burning .iso

April 20th, 2009, 01:11 PM

I am trying to install Ubuntu on my Armada 1750 lap, so far with no success :( I then tried to follow your tutorial and have the following few comments you may want to know

When I execute the InfraRecorder burner installer from sourceforge Windows says that it is corrupted. I'll try to burn with the Toshiba utility of the borrowed lap used for the download

In http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download there is a possibility to choose mirrors, A mirror by me (Israel) cuts the download time by a factor of >10 (as compared with BitTorrent).

After download completes (ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso), I'll burn it and boot the Armada with it.

You might also just want to try re-downloading infrarecorder. It's very possible that you download just got corrupted somehow

Every time I've downloaded that installer it's said it's corrupted, I don't think it's maintained any more?

Can't Windows burn an .iso??

Cheers, Marco.

Use torrent for download.That is fastest way to get Ubuntu.After you do it read this (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto) to see how to check md5sum and disc integrity.If all goes well burn as image.I'msuprised that InfraRecorder is corrupted.Try with some other burning software,that is best I can say.

If u wish to burn it on xp u can use aprogram called cdburnerxp. It has an option to burn .iso's.

The website is http://cdburnerxp.se/.

I used it to burn my disk, worked perfectly.

i find imgburn to be an excellent windows image burning app (and windows cd burning app in general)

Just wanted to toss out Deep Burner: http://www.deepburner.com/?r=download

It ain't pretty but it works really well for burning ISO's.

There are plenty of 3rd party software for Windows to get the same usability as a standard Gnome or KDE desktop.

for burning iso's i can reccomend isorecorder. very small program and does the trick anytime

Well, it seems like you have been getting help with this issue but I figured I would just put in my 2 cents. When I finally decided to grow up and ditch a virtually useless and frustrating OS (a.k.a. Windows XP) I downloaded a live cd and burnt it using a very nice program called Power ISO (http://www.poweriso.com/). It was very simple to use, installed with minimal frustration and it has a free version. Well thats all I have to add, Good Luck.

i am afraid that the title was not appropriate and am sorry about. Title should have been " two comments regarding the psychocate tutorial": i) people leaving in strange countries like me to consider downloading from nearby mirrors and ii) Windows dislike the recommended burner 

Thank you all for your kind replies
