    trying to install xubuntu alternative amd64, cd just spins over and over

    so yup, the title says it all. i'm trying to install xubuntu alternative 12.04 lts and when i boot it grabs teh disc and just spins, stops, spins, etc. Could my dvd/cd player just be broken?

    borderblu; Hi !
    Did you ?
    a) verify the .iso file
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM
    b) Burn the .iso as an "image" -not a data file- at a slow rate
    c) List the contents of that disk from a file manager
    d) Attempt to boot the disk in an alternate computer

    just a few thoughts

    One thing I've always wondered about those military choppers is whether or not the pilot's ejection seat launch is synchronized to fire through the rotor blades, or if it's just sort of a crap shoot.

    Oh, I know what that's like. I ran over the dog doo with the lawnmower one day and blew it all into the swimming pool.
    Dad made damned sure I never did that again.
