Burning Mandrake ISO files to CD (too big)


I'm just in the process of trying out Mandrake 9.2


Of the 3 ISO's, only the first will burn to my CD without issue. The other 2 are considered to be too big.

Has anyone else had this problem and found a way around it?


I don't have a DVD Burner.

Are you sure you have 700 MB blanks? I was able to write the .iso files with no problem.

Hope this helps,

Geoff

I'm also using 700MB Sony CD-R...and Burning with Nero Ultra 6.0

What software are you using?

I noticed in the FAQ there was some issue with older versions of Adaptec's EZCD Creator because of incorrect file size reading. Updating to the newer version seems to correct this issue.

make sure you are finalizing the CD. If you don't finalize the CD, there won't be enough room for the images. I used Nero 6 Ultra as well with some cheap Optimum and Fuji Film CDRs from walmart's cheap bin!

I'll try it again - I'll even try it with Adaptec's EZ CD Creator, but I'm still puzzled how they will fit. Disk image 2 and 3 are both bigger than 710MB (714 and 710).


Weird...

=========================

Hmmmm... my disk 2 and 3 .iso files are both just under 700MB.
Now you have me stumped!

you are looking at the KB size...1000 KB DO NOT equal 1MB. My disk two and disk three ISOs are 714,000 KB and 711,000 KB.

Maybe that's the confusion. Just burn it and see what happens...they should each be a hair under 700 MB. (like 697 and 695)

But i think you are looking at the measurement! common mistake :-)


Now, if only someone can get me online in linux!!!! (See my post in the network section!)

I understand what you're saying, but my personal interpretation of file sizes has no impact on Nero and it's ability to burn.

Right?

Right.

For those of you who were standing by waiting to see if a real solution would be found, I recently upgraded Nero 6 to 6.3...and we're back in business.

I've finally installed Mandrake 9.2.

No need to get ill...that's really odd, but i'm glad it worked. I have nero 6.0.0 and it worked fine with the burn, but glad to hear something worked

Your problem is Nero. Its seeing the files as 1000 mb =1gig. Go get the patch from Nero. I had to fix this myself till I started burning with K3b. Once you get Mdk Installed try K3b its much better then EZ cd and Nero.
