Well, I'll add to this. I have Roxio CD Creator 5 Platinum on Win 98se......and XavierP is correct, the Procedures for this program
don't really change all that much........and one can go to the Roxio
web site and get a small software update for support of different brands/models of CD burners......

If anything, the only changes that seem obvious to me between versions are the level of annoyances - the latest versions install all sorts of applets and desktop toolbars and such like. All I ever want to do with it is data cds. But it works - and that's the important thing.

[Edit]Edited because 'level' has a v in it[/Edit]

How Bout ISO Recorder... It's a tiny plugin-style iso burner that integrates seemlesly with Winblows Explorer even associates ISOs with the 'Burn Image' command.
Works like a charm and is easy as pie. It's just a matter of double-clicking the ISO then telling the pop-up window what speed you want to burn at and how many copies you want.

Free, Fast, Stable, and Downloads in under a minute on dial-up.

ISO burning - why mediacheck fails?

I downloaded FC4 iso's and checked that sha1sum is correct on downloaded file.

1. ISO image burned on linux platform with cdrecord command (no additioanl parameters given) FAILS mediacheck.
2. Same ISO file burned on Win2000 (nero) but on a CDRW passed mediacheck.
3. CD-2 and CD-3 burned on linux-cdrecord failed mediacheck.
4. CD-4 burned on a WinXP platfoem (through Nero) PASSED mediacheck.
5. I did some search and found that there is some padding parameter to be specified for mediacheck to pass.

The questions are -
A. Does WinXP (nero) take care of padding issue automatically or it is CDRW that the mediacheck pass was achieved.
B. If burning ISO images on linux platform, what specific care to be taken (command-parameter or application-options) so that mediacheck pass can be ensured.

Thanks

Thank you, Xavier, for an excellent article. Newer Roxio has more putative "user friendly" front end stuff gumming up the works, but it behaves in exactly the same fashion. The key bit of extra information you included was the impact of burn speed on fidelity. I had just wasted a dozen CDs in spite of having good checksums. My one regret is that I messed up 3 sets of discs instead of 1 before going to the source.
thanks again,
Rob

No problem. At one time I had made lots of nice shiny coasters before I got it figured out.

Does anyone know where I can find an ISO burner for the Mac? Both Nero and Alcohol 120 don't work.
