Arrow How do I burn files to a CD in Ubuntu?


I can't remember the password to my old xp machine and the only account is the administrator so I decided to get a password recovery. I found this one, which seems perfect.

http://www.loginrecovery.com/

so after I download the file how do I get it on a CD?

I'm using Xubuntu.

If you do not have K3B - a powerful CD/DVD burning software, then just insert the blank CD, copy the files directly to the CD, and then just click 'write data' on the right-top corner.

Edit: if the file is an ISO, you do not simply copy it. You can use cdrecord (I'm assuming you have it installed, of course) to burn ISOs.

Open a terminal and type sudo apt-get install k3b then use it.

If it is an ISO image, just right-click on the icon and select "Write image to disc".
