View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] can't burn image to CD

November 10th, 2008, 04:31 AM
Hi everyone
I just downloaded an ISO file for Ubuntu, and I'm trying to put it onto a CD with InfraRecorder, but my computer doesn't seem to be able to. This is confusing me, because it's a relatively new computer (a laptop), and I don't know why it wouldn't have the ability to burn it to a CD. Is there a way to find out whether or not it can? And if it can't, how do I get Ubuntu, besides Wubi? I saw something about requesting a CD, would that be free, and would it be shipped to me?
Thanks to anyone who can help, sorry if this is something I should have been able to figure out myself, but I didn't want to waste my download of the image.

Try using a different program to burn the iso, I use one called imgburn (http://www.imgburn.com/) its a small program that has never failed me. Make sure that the iso you download md5sum matches. See here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM). Then burn the iso as and iso not data at x4 or less. If you requested a free cd of ubuntu from shipit (https://shipit.ubuntu.com/) it will take about 4-8 weeks to arrive.
