Making a CD from an ISO, help please.


I have downloaded a 2.0 ISO file from Puppy Linux, made a CD and it works well EXCEPT that I cannot 'save' anything to it.

According to Puppy Linux, there is a way to burn the CD such that you can save some information to it. The program I used to burn with is K3b (Konqueror) and I cannot see anything related to this subject in this program UNLESS it would be: K3b > Tools > Burn CD image > Advanced > Start Multisession CD

Why did I not post this to Puppy Linux, you ask?

When I try to register for the Forum, I get the message, 'This URL not found on this browser' (and I've tried 2 browsers) so maybe they're re-configuring some stuff.

Anyway, if someone would be good enough to give me some help here, I will really appreciate it.

Lewis.

That sounds like it would be worth a try. You probably need a CD-RW.

You need to make sure you downloaded the "multisession" iso and not the regular one. Then when you go to burn it, make sure to select multisession.

You might be interested in a podcast which is aimed at newbies. WWW. linuxreality.com

Episode 6 was about obtaining Linux ISOs and Episode 7 was about burning ISos

Not that I am having the same issue as the question this thread was started with but I'd just like to say thanks arochester for a great link to a valuable podcast.

Cheers

Thanks for your info.

I tried a couple of places to download but didn't see the option you suggest. It was just 2.0, period.

Is it possible you could direct me to where I might get the 'multisession' ISO file?

Kind regards.

Lewis.

Thanks you, this looks like a super resource.

I guess I have to get an MP3 to be able to use it?

Kind regards.

Lewis.

Hi Limeylew

No you don't need to get an MP3 player to listen to a podcast. Just download the MP3 (or OGG) to your computer and listen to it from there
