Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello. This is my first time posting on a forum. I could not actually find any info on my problem on google or anything because I don't know what to call it.
I am using Debian and k3b to burn a CDs. The first disk I write, I "verify written data". This disk checks out okay. Nothing wrong with it at all.
The second (and all following disks) I do not choose "verify written data". I had assumed that since it worked the first time, it should work each time afterward. However, when I went to try this disk (after erroroneously deleting all material that was burned to the disk), it would not work. Debian would not mount it. It said that it does not have a valid fs type.
I also tried to dd if=/dev/hdd of=/home/user/iso.iso
This was likewise fruitless.
It seems that all disks I choose to "verify written data" work fine. If I do not, it seems to have no file system.
My question: how can I recover the data from those disks burned, or even repair the disks themselves (preferable).
It should be noted that Windows2000 and XP on different CD drives and different computers also did not find this disk.
I have tried ISOBuster. I have also tried Stellar Phoenix (DMR and CDROM). Neither worked.
I think the problem lies in the fact that I am using an AOpen burner. Apparently they have been known for issues with the burners. The first CD appears to have been a fluke and the other 7 disks burned improperly as my burner always tries to burn things.
