Burning Debian DVD images to DVDs


hi,

for the past 2 days i have been working like crazy downloading the debian dvd-images (i386 architecture) to my laptop.. then i noticed that my laptop doesnt have a dvd-burner so i sent both the iso files to my better computer with a dvd-burner. ok. now, i open nero express 6 and click on "bootable dvd image". then when i try to add the dvd image to the list, it says "the file [iso file] is larger than 2 gb" and doesnt let me add the image to the list.

i heard that maybe its just nero.

what do i do?! i really dont to have to do the network install (which im downloading right now.. but another comp on the network is taking up all the bandwith so this is gonna take awhile......)

i already have the 4.5 and 4.1 GIGABYTE isoīs.. surely i didnt download all that in vain!!

pplzz help

thxx!!

Ok, don't make a bootable Nero image. Instead you just click File --> Burn Image to Disk. Then you put a blank DVD in your recorder, select the Debian ISO, and burn it. It's that simple.

If you need more help, LMK and I will post some screenshots for you.

Good luck,
-Nick

Sorry to tell you, your blank DVD is a coaster now. If you have a Target in your area they have 25 packs of DVDs on sale for $8 right now. Not the absolute best price you can find if you really look, but it's fast, convenient, and still a pretty good deal.

simple solution, why bother with nero if you only itnend to burn the dvd iso, head over to downoad.com
and use this page

http://www.download.com/3150-2646_4-...=&ca=&x=35&y=9

lists all the free (beer) cd/dvd burners listed there they will sort it out if you cant get nero to do it.
