What do ISO images look like on a CD?


I am trying to copy the slack 12 iso images onto CDs so I can install it later, but, K3B is really buggy.

When looking at a CD with an iso image on it, is it one file or is it several different files?

I Cannot figure out if K3B copied the files as an image or not.


Thank You.

You should see several files/folders if you want to create a bootable installation cd.

Thank You.
I have one cd that k3b wrote a single iso file on it somehow and others that show several files and folders, even though I chose to write an image.

It might be worth checking if you are using the latest version of k3b.
