How do I burn ISO images???

I thought all my prayers have been answered when I got k3B, but alas, now I am stumped again.

I want to burn some ISO images (games) onto CDs from my HD. I have an .img file, .ccd file (created by clonecd) and a .cue file (which is a normal cuesheet i would normally use when burning in nero). None of these are recognised when choosing them to burn in k3B and it does not want to burn them, it bombs out with an error.

Is there a way of burning these files, and if yes, how? I am especially interested to know if there is a way of burning them in k3b, cos I just love that app so much!!!

If you're burning Windoze games, then why not just burn them in Windoze? You will be using them in Windoze anyway, so there really is no point for you to burn them in Linux.

As far as I know, Linux CD burning utilities only support standard ISO9660 images (and no, neither CCD, IMG nor BIN files are standard ISO images, they are in a proprietary format of the respective CD burning program).

If you are curious on how to burn standard ISO9660 CD images on Linux, this page may prove helpful. Good luck!

thanks for the quick reply mate.

I wish I had time to play games, I am just supposed to burn them for some friends who don't have a cd writer. I guess I'll have to install XP again just so that I can use CloneCD to make these things for them....grrrrrrr.

Use the search, Luke!

As for Nero's img-format: I'm pretty sure it IS a
plain ISO-image ... you could give it a shot and
test-burn it onto a RW ;)
