    Question Ubuntu 12.10 ISO to big for CD

    I recently downloaded the ISO for Ubuntu 12.10 and tried to burn the ISO image to a CD but the disk image is too big for a standard 700 Mb CD-R. I tried to burn the ISO image to a DVD but I kept getting a wrong disk error message.

    Any suggestions???

    I install mine via USB stick. I never tried today's ISO yet but have installed by USB in the Beta stages.

    You need a 800MB CD to fit the 12.10 download onto.

    I'm not sure why you are having problems burning the image to a DVD, I do this all the time with CD ISO's.
    What software are you trying to use for burning?

    I use Nero 7.5.7.0 for burning CD, DVD & Blu-Ray.

    I was afraid that I'd have to purchase an 800 Mb CD for this.....

    If you have a >1GB USB stick you can use Unetbootin to create a bootable USB.

    Thanks for the replies....I guess I will have to purchase some 800 Mb discs then.

    Also, Thanx for the tip on Unetbootin.

    I'd suggest that you try again with a DVD and make sure you didn't pick up another CD by mistake. with a DVD it should be bullet proof.
    good luck

    I just used imgburn to write the 12.10 to a dvd. That didn't work when I tried to use Nero. The dvd seems to be working fine in installing quetzal.

    Ubuntu's built in Startup Disk Creator is really good as well.
