View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trouble checking CD for defects

May 28th, 2009, 09:14 PM
I'm a newbie. I've burned a cd of ubuntu and have started the "check disc for defects" process. However, this has been taking a long time (more than two hours). The CD ROM light is on and it seems that the CD is being checked. What is the normal amount of time for this process?

I would say probably not that long, did you try just installing it and seeing what happens. Typically if there are defects, either the installation will fail, or stuff will go crazy after you boot up post-install. I never really check my cd's if I don't have some reason to think they are bad.

Thanks for your help. I'll try that.
