Angry Burning ISO's

It is my intention to eventually move over to Linux entirely because as everyone else, have been disillusioned with Microsoft for a long time. I haven't found a distribution yet that I am completely satisfied with. I have been trying to burn a Fedora ISO, but everytime it just copies another onto CD OR DVD. I have just tried Alex Feinman's Powertoy for the unpteenth time today, both disc-at-once, as it recommends and just now track-at once on Nero, because Power Toy is not registering on XP. I am dual booting at the moment with Ubuntu and yesterday, I tried on that using Brasero. I have also downloaded an ISO of OpenSuse which I had the same trouble with. I could certainly use some suggestions or alternatives PLEASE.

I don't quite understand what your problem is. Make sure you burn a disk image to disk, not a data project.

Hi there,

If I am getting it correctly you are looking for free CD/DVD burning software. If yes then give PowerISO a try:

PowerISO for Linux:

Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

I think you're burning your images (ISO) the wrong way since you state 'track at once' and 'disc at once' which are no options when you burn an image. If you use Brasero in the main window you normally have 5 buttons on the left, the bottom one saying Burn image. That's the one you need to click on. Next in the pop-up window you choose the image you want to burn and click on Burn image.

Kind regards,

Yep and you can install PowerISO as a plugin in AcetoneISO which is very powerful piece of software.

When you're burning an iso image burn it at slow speed, aka 4x or 6x.

If you are doing it with Brasero in Ubuntu just right-click the ISO and choose "Burn with Brasero". This will burn it the right way.

If you are currently running Windows download ImgBurn and it will do all of your image burning. After installing ImgBurn you should be able to right click on the iso and choose "Open With>ImgBurn".
