knoppix wont burn..read error...arrggg


Hi all,Ive recently bought a few distros from a newly found reseller and ive been trying to burn them but it appears theyve somehow been tampered with as ive never had problems simply burning them to another cd...im using nero and have tried copying the files to my hard drive and then using win iso to get them on to a cd but still cant.....anyone know of any issues like this...ive been trying to get knoppix copied half the night.....never had them before and i think theyve done something to stop people from copying them wich is against the gnu isnt it??

no. they can keep you from copying it, they just have to provide the source for
their changes to gnu code that they are distributing. a custom knoppix cdrom's
layout and files can be copyrighted while the majority of stuff on the disk is gnu.

you're probably just running into some other problem though. nero recently
was having problems burning iso's. i've seen a link to the fix on this site.

Is nero the best software for burning from Cd to CD? (Specificly Linux).
Would Virtual_rose ( my friend) Be better of using Easy Cd Creator?

What is a good newbie friendly cd option besides nero perhaps?.

cheers.

I haven't used those windows programs since about 1998. there's nothing
different about a linux iso disk image that you can't burn it in windows.
copying the files wouldn't do it though, because the cdrom is bootable, and
you have to copy the bootability of a cdrom.
a recent version of nero will not let you burn a full 700 megs and the knoppix disk is.
