Angry Suse 9.1 Personal ISO Nero burn problems


Peeps

Whilst not a complete newbie to Linux this "feels" like a newbie problem and I am a little upset with myself that I can't crack it :|

I have an ISO image of Suse 9.1 Personal from PCPro magazine DVD (UK).

I tried burning it using Nero 5.5 and get the following error:

Quote:
"There is not enough space to burn this compilation onto this medium"
The ISO file is 734,101,504 bytes which I make 716,896 Kb (700.1 Mb).

Now I get that it is just over 700 Mb and yes I have a 700 Mb CDR rather than 650 Mb before anyone asks ... but how is ANYONE meant to burn THAT ISO to a normal CD ???? The CD info shows that my CD blank has 703 Mb available.

Now I didnt just give up ... not my style ! I searched here, Google, Google Groups , the magazine forums, Suse, Nero etc. etc. No luck.

I only found one 2 post thread somewhere which the person replying said that it was buggy and didnt even have Make and was a pain to burn because of the ISO size, but offered NO solution !

I have tried the following:

1) burn on laptop instead ... same
2) turn on overburn to 82 mins in Nero ... same
3) use B's Recorder Gold 5 (burn s/w supplied with burner!!) and cant burn images AFAIK !!
4) try HDBurn feature ... didn't like that even tho' drive does support it.

Please HEEEELLLLPPP I'm going insane !

I remember buring the iso image and it said that it had to "finalise" the CD.

This may be the problem. Try setting the finalise checkbox in nero.

If this does not work try downloading nero 6. and try with that

hmmm

thanks for the reply but I did try that AND disk-at-once too !

As for downloading Nero 6, well I don't want to upgrade and don't want to risk messing up my Nero 5 install just for a demo version of 6, on the remote chance it might work to burn one CD !!!

Sorry jax8 ... not ungrateful but that is waaaaayyy too much hassle for a single burn.

Anyone else please ?

Thanks for that.

Just tried all combinations of Finalise, Disk-at-once (also have a Disk-at-once/96 option ??) and even turned off Burn-Proof too !!

ALL give same error ??!!

Even tried different media (still 700Mb though).

Sorry peeps.

In that case, I don't know where you live but Linux Format usually has a full distro on the cover (especially if you get the DVD edition). The latest issue has Mandrake 10. Why not install from that? (Added value - the current edition has a letter in it by me!)

Errr XavierP

Don't wish to seem rude but that's what I've ALREADY got !

A Suse 9.1 Personal version FREE on a magazine DVD. It's just that it's an ISO that I have to burn.

I appreciate that Linux Format MAY have a Linux version and it MAY be installable from CD (although many seem to be ISOs just like this one).

However, I particularly want SUSE NOT any others I'm afraid.

Thanks for you continued efforts BUT I just need to find someone to explain the issues with an ISO which is 700Mb (or just over) and burning it. I CANNOT be the only one with this problem as the ISO is also available direct from Suse and is the same size.

One possibility is that I use WinISO to remove some files BUT I don't know what would be same to remove.

Please help oh Linux gurus

No, I meant a full distro cd, not just the iso. But, to get back to your problem, the iso should fit regardless, I always use 700mb cds and never have that problem.
