mounting / burning iso files


Hi,

I've downloaded FC3 and successfully checked them with MD5SUM. All good.

However I'm trying to burn them onto a CD-RW with Adaptec Easy CD Burner. It is generating a number of problems and not creating the CD.

I understand you either use Nero or the package mentioned above because these applications 'Mount' the ISO files.

What is mounting? Why is it necessary and How can i do it without using either of these applications?

I basically want to download and use a free CD Burner rather than Nero (i've given up on Easy CD Burner).

I've read through a lot of threads but can't find any answers to these questions.

Cheers
G

Error message generated?

Hi Ben,

Downloaded Alcohol and this is the error message generated. Is there anything obvious you can see to explain why this will not burn.

Thanks in advance
Gavin

Can you drive handle burning standard data/audio discs from files on your HD? (Trying to rule out that the burner is bad...)

Question

I gota bring this one back up because I still don't understand what hey mean by Mount this and that. Is htis the same as installing a driver? IT seems that in all the threads I have read it pertains to recognition of new things lkike a CD or USB device. Is it because Linux lacks plug and play capabilities?

mount means to make a storage media available to the filesystem. it does not have to be a physical device, you can mount an iso image as a loop device so it looks like you have a cdrom, when in fact it is only the image of a cdrom.
if you get "no seek complete" errors you have a cd that has been dropped at some time and will always have problems with it, use it at minimum speed.
if you just want lo install linux to burn cdroms for free that is an unnecessarily complicated route, the cdrtools package are freely available, well documented and work with windows (dos), with that you can make iso images (a virtual cdrom on your hard disk) and burn the image to the cd or dvd writer. it come with documentation, which is not too hard to follow.
FC3 is ok but not brilliant, there are better distributions.

Without knowing the details I would guess that your not burning the CDs correctly.

To burn an ISO file using EZCD Creator:
http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/winoncdrwin.html
or Nero:
http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/neroburning.html

Neither Nero or Roxio mount the ISO files in the windows world. Mounting is a linux term/command that in laymans words connects the data filesystem to the OS.
