Using CD's burned on Windows under Linux


Hey everyone,

I need to get some files from my Windows machine to my Linux machine (IBM Thinkpad 600e). I learned through trial and error that I need to create an ISO out of the files under Windows, burn them, and then get the files onto Linux. For example, the ISO's I downloaded from the Internet to install Linux (Redhat 9 ISO's) are able to be mounted and unmounted easily under Linux. After mounting them, I can easily browse the CD ROM directory. However, when I use Nero on Windows to create an ISO, and then burn it, and try to mount it under Linux, I get a "mount: No medium found" error. Why is this and how can I fix it? I really need to copy the files from Windows to Linux, so all help is appreciated!

Thanks!

-Vic

Did you make sure the CD was good after you burned it? When you try and mount, are you sure you are using the correct cd drive? ie. /mnt/cdrom vs. /mnt/cdrom1 ....

Several Linuxiso users have emailed me asking about burning iso images to cd with the Nero program. I have no experience with Nero myself. I did some searching with Google and found several links to information that should answer your questions. These links also contain information about burning problems with certain CDR/RW models. They are listed below, in no particular order. This is from the Nero FAQ.

For older versions of Nero, these instructions should work. Unless you are 'sure' of the speed at which your cdr will burn successfully, you may want to test your drive to avoid the dreaded coaster syndrome.

From the Nero window;
Open the following menu entry: File -> Burn CD image.
Now set the type of file: All files (*.*)
Now select the LinuxISO image file to be burned.
Now you will be informed that Nero does not recognize the format of the image file. Please confirm this dialog.
In the dialog which then appears, set the following parameters.
Type of image: Data Mode 1

Block size: 2048 Bytes
File precursor and length of the image trailer: 0 Bytes
no Scrambled and no Swapped
Click on OK, then Burn.



Use the following instructions for newer versions of Nero ( Contributed by Anthony P. )


Start Nero
Choose the menu command "File"->"Burn Image"
An "Open" file dialog box appears with the following image types supported (*.nrg, *.iso, *.cue)
Select your download LinuxISO file and click Open
The "Write CD" dialog box appears with several tabs (Info, Foreign image, Misc, Burn).
Click the 'Burn' Tab
Confirm that 'Write' and 'Finalize' are selected
Click on "Write". Watch it burn.



Another user wrote: If 'Finalize CD' (No further writing possible!) check box is not checked, a Nero - Burning Rom message box appears stating, "There is not enough space available to burn this compilation unless the CD is finalized after burning." "Do you want Nero to finalize it after burning?" Click the Yes button.


The following pertains to burning the LinuxPPC .iso image with Nero, from the README with the iso.


On a Windows box, install Nero Burning Rom (demo is fine) from www.ahead.de
Download lppc-2k-q4.iso
Launch Nero and close Wizard
File, Burn Image...
Change file type to All Files, find iso image and ope
Change Type of Image to HFS
Click OK, insert Blank CDR, Untick Determine Max Speed and Simulate Click Write



Nero Download Page

http://www.nero.com/en/helptool/609.htm#o609%20


http://www.nero.com/en/helptool/333.htm#o333


This link explains in detail what constitutes an ISO9660 file image. For Nero users, make note of the differences between the Level 1 and Level 2 settings. http://www.nero.com/en/helptool/137.htm#o584
What I found, hope it helps!

If you are mounting a CD and your drive is specified in your /etc/fstab , all you have to type is "mount /mnt/cdrom" (assuming cdrom is the drive). What are you typing?

Hey guys,

Thanks for the information. In Linux, I am typing (from the command line), 'mount /mnt/cdrom' since that is what the /etc/fstab file says.

I think I described my problem wrong. I know how to burn ISO images in Nero just fine. That's how I downloaded the Redhat ISO's and burned them. That worked flawlessly.

My question is, how do I create an ISO so that when I burn it to a CD, it is recognized after I mount it in Linux? For example, if I take the Redhat CD that I burned and mount it in Linux, I can browse through it just fine. However, if I take the CD that I made with the ISO image that I made (I made the ISO via Nero as well), and mount it in Linux, it says "mount: No medium found". How can I go about fixing this? What program does Redhat, for example, use to make an ISO?

Thanks again for all the help!

-Vic

If you are a command line junkie then it will be in here:
http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~torsten/redhat_tips.html

basically you need to do this:
cdrecord -v speed=n dev=scsibus_values -data filename

to get the scsibus_values type
cdrecord -scanbus

If you are in redhat9 or fedora then you can use Nautilus's built in burning capablities. Type "burn:///" into the Location bar

Here is a page to create and iso image from a cd if you are interested:

oh.....

ok. Then maybe I don't understand your problem. You need to get files from Windows to Linux using burned CDs, right. Just burn the CD like you would if you were moving files to another windows machine. There is no need to create any ISOs if you have the files on your harddrive. Have you tried to just burn the files to a cd and try it in Linux yet?

Yes, I've tried that and when I try to mount the CDROM is says that no medium found.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Nevermind, I got it to work now.

Attention to other linux newbies: When buring under Nero, make sure that you have Joliet (Secondary volume descriptor) unchecked under the ISO tab, and then burn your CD.
