Linux Mandrake cd image


I have tried everything to get the first image to work on a cd when I burn the image to the cd it burns the entire image file itself, so I never see multiple files.
When this file is burned over to cd what actually does the decompression of the file?
I'm using Roxio EZ cd creator is that the culpret? I've recorded cd from cd image then burned from that, iso 9660 format, still no go. Any other ideas on getting this to work?

I used to use Roxio but it was so tricky to burn ISOs that I changed to Nero.

The problem is that (not your fault) you are doing it wrong somehow. It's been a long time but I remember that if you did it a way that seemed OK that it just made a copy of the ISO like you describe.

Look through the DOCs and the MENU to see how to do it with Roxio.

Sorry, like I said, I haven't used Roxio in over 2 yrs...

Using EZ CD creator is no harder then Nero. Just file the instructions from the previous post.

From the main menu select file | Create from image, select file format *.ISO then select the desired ISO image. Then burn the CD. Done.

If this is so easy why is it so fscking difficult? : )
I've looked at all of the suggestions and tried them all but I keep producing coasters! Can someone confirm that EZ CD creator 5 is actually decompressing the image to a directory format because it keeps burning the darn entire file image to CD.

EZ CD creator is what I use most of the time. What steps are you using to burn the CD?

Lets take it once step at a time.

1.From the main menu select File.
2.Then scroll down that submenu and select 'Create from image'
3. A file menu will appear. In the file type box select *.ISO.
4. Find the location of the ISO file and select that file either by doubling clicking or clicking once and then click on the Ok box.
5. On the CD creation Setup window, click the Advanced Button, then choose Disk at Once. If you use Track at once, you'll get an unusable CD. 6. Click in the record button.

If you are draging the file into the record box it will only burn the entire file.

Michael,
Yup, I've done all that exactly to the letter and still get the same results.
This is why it is so frustrating should be simple but not on my system for some reason. Can you confirm this is the correct image for Linux Mnadrake
9.1 and it did hash out just fine. The file is mandrake91-cd1-inst.i586.

Hmm, That is the correct file. I take it you have left off the iso extension. What site are you downloading the ISO image from? And all you see is the one iso file on the CD?

Have you tried burning the other CD ISO files yet

Hey all,
Got it, have no idea why it was not burning other than I was logged in under another user account, weird. Must have been me.: )
Thanks for all the help, I'll check my accout later and see if it bombs out again and post it in this thread.
Thanks again...
