Getting an error when I burn ubuntu 10.04/64 bit ISO file to cdROM


Hello all!

I started my Linux class last night and our HW is to download Ubuntu version 10.04/ 64 bit to our laptop. I have windows 7 and I downloaded the ISO file to my hard drive and I right clicked and burned as image to my CDROM. But finally I get an error that the CD is not sucessfully burnt.

When I check the properties in my CD, it's full (687MB same file size as the ISO file). But still I run this hot disk it gives me the error "Input/output error. Could not mount".

I would really appreciate any help

Hi there,

Welcome to LQ!!!

If you got an error message at the end that the CD has not burnt successfully then yes there is a problem even if the size of CD and ISO matches.

Are you trying to burn it using Nero? Because I have seen such issues with Nero on Windows 7. I would suggest you to use PowerISO to burn the CD and burn it at a low rate say 12x or even lower if applicable for CD.

You can download PowerISO for Windows 7 from: http://download.cnet.com/PowerISO/30...-10439118.html

Hello,


I would recommend burning it with imgburn at a speed of 8x

Hi!

@T3RM1NVT0R- Thank you for your fast response. I tried to burn the cd using PowerISO. The cd burnt successfully but I got 2 errors during data verification:
1) Request could not be performed because of an IO device error.
2) Error verifying data on disk.

Since the cd was burnt successfully, I tried to install it. but again the same error "input/output error cannot mount.

Whats going wrong here? Is it that difficult to burn a ISO file to a CDRom?? I wasted 3 cds already.

Any other suggestions?

Oh ya, I also burnt at a very slow speed of 10x as that was the lowest.

@dino123 - Hi! Thanks for your reply. I'm using windows 7. Have you done this before using imgburn in windows7.
Thanks.

Well burning ISO is not that difficult but this issue seems to be little stubborn. Now we have to check whether issue is with the hardware or the software.

1. Are you able to write any other ISO file of the same size on the CD or just this one creates problem.

2. If same happens while burning other ISO file then try writing a data disk (no ISO) of the same size. Still the same result then there is some problem with the hardware. Either your CD writer is having issues or the CD you are using not good enough to accommodate the data of 680MB and more. Usually I have seen only Sony and MoserBaer CDs accommodating data of 700MB.

3. Try it with re-writable CD. This will help you to troubleshoot the issue without any loss of CD.

Those are hardware errors that are usually related to outdated, incompatible or corrupted device drivers. May also be encountered when using incompatible software.

First, go to your burner software developer's website to see if there is a newer version. Just because the package came with Windows 7 doesn't necessarily mean it will be compatible with any service packs. (ran into the very same issue with Roxio 5 on Windows XP SP3.)

If there are no updated versions for the software or it doesn't correct the problem, visit the PC manufacturer's website and search for a firmware driver update for your burner.

Hope this helps.

I've used ImgBurn on dozens of CDs and DVDs on XP Pro with no failures. It should work OK on 7 too. Try it.

True. A new installation will configure itself correctly for the OS and hardware. (Very slow typist-- started before the last 2 posts. )

I've tried with IMGBURN. Still the same error. My CD-R burns fine but while verifying data at 85% i get the same error(no matter what I use to burn).I'll type the error message as it appears:

I/O Error!
Device:[1;0;0]hp CDDVDW TS-L633M 0301 (D(SATA)

ScsiStatus: 0x02
Interpretation: Check condition

CDB: BE 00 00 04 bla bla bla

So thats the message I'm getting. At this point I try to reboot from CD ROM and ubentu loads and after that I get input/ouput error cannot mount.

Please provide me with a solution. This is my first time burning an ISO file to a CD-R. It's just a simple task of burning a disk. It can't be this complicated.

Please help!

Can't help. Might be a hardware problem, and I know less about hardware than I do about software (which isn't much).

Just saying, is the iso image OK? Have you run md5 checksum on it? (However this does not explain the burning error...)
How old is the cd recorder? Is it possible it is malfunctioning due to "age"? (I have thrown away 4-5 cd roms/recorders over the past six years).
Keep in mind that audio cds ignore read/write errors, so you might not notice them.

Just a thought, but have you checked the pc manufacturer's website for a firmware driver update for your burner per my first post? I also ran into that issue with WinXP AMD64 SP2.

Thank you to each and everyone of you. I sincerely tried all the suggestions. But it's that stubborn. My laptop is fairly new, bought it at the end of 2009.

So what I did was, I just downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 as windows installer. So each time I start my computer I gotta select which operating system to use. So its a temp fix. But my instructor asked us to create the hot disk which I couldn't. So I'm gonna ask his help in the class today.

When this problem is fixed, I'll definitely post the solution.

Thanks a million to all for your precious time
