Post more information on what you have done and what didn't work. What distributions have you tried and where did you download them?
Did you check the download? Did you burn it to CD as an image? Did the installation begin? Did it stop at some point? Were there any error messages? What operating system are you currently using?

info

I am running Windows Xp on a emachines desktop computer. I am trying to put my downloaded file edubuntu-10.10-dvd-i386 on to a Dvd , I have tried TDK dvds but they didn't work so i got Memorex thinking It might. Neither worked. I have used Infrarecorder, Imgburn, and Active@ ISO Image file Burning Software. All have fail right after I would start burn.

On Infrarecoreder:
Total progress started at 0% and went to a 100 %
Status: Operation failed.
16:30:55 Warning: the DMA speed test has been skipped
16:31:16 Started to write disc in simulation mode.
16:31:18 Cannot open next track.
16:31:18 The disc was successfully closed

infrarecorder had always worked for me , when i had xp .
burn as " an image" and on the slowest speed .

however on some computers ( it is a bit random)
some dvd's work better than others -- trial and error ---

your normal everyday average Maxell ,tdk,memerox ,... should work fine

"edubuntu-10.10-dvd-i386" is what 2.4 Gig
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/r...10.10/release/

but why the older 10 version ? released on 07-Oct-2010
the current is Edubuntu 11.04
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/r...11.04/release/

Does burning in general work? The NEC ND-2500A is from 2004, so I would rather assume that your problem is hardware related.

Have you tried burning a different iso? The object being to prove your hardware works. Try burning a CD instead of a DVD, does that work?

Trying a CD is a good idea. You could have a dead/faulty DVD-R laser, while the CD laser could be working 100%.

The only thing that could be a problem is that edubuntu is DVD only (2.7GB .isos for 11.04, 2.4GB for 10.10, I didnt look any further back than that).

You could always just get a normal *buntu CD, then add the edubuntu parts. The easiest way would be to reverse the psychocats 'remove edubuntu' directions.

http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/puregnome

Just change "sudo apt-get remove xxxx" to "sudo apt-get install xxx" and get rid of the "&& sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" at the end. That should install the edubuntu parts into any ubuntu version.

I just burnt a Music CD with Windows Media Player, and now am burning the ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386 onto a CD and everything is burning well so far at 12%

I will also try to burn information onto a Dvd later and see if it works.

I have tried putting many Iso images on dvds and all failed.

Thank you guys for the advice, much appreciated

The burn got to 81% and failed. I typed the I/O Error but clicked wrong post reply so I lost all I typed and clicked out of it on my other computer.

I assume the Cd is wasted ?

Yup! it's toast but probably only cost a few pennies/cents/pesos,etc.

Have you tried your DVD with the burn speed turned down to minimum or at least not max speed? I sometimes have problems if you let the burner pick the speed automatically.

That would seem to indicate bad hardware or burning improperly. I notice in your post four:

Your best bet might be to buy it on DVD. You can usually find it for pretty cheap, and then you'll have a tool you can use for debugging your hardware easily.
