Question Problems creating FC2 CDROMs from ISO images


Friends, I have been dying to try Fedora Core 2. I literally have downloaded the ISO images (from multiple sources) as many as 8 times. Each time, the MD5 signatures check out with no problem.

I've been then creating the CDROMs from the ISO images that I've downloaded. Each time I create the 4 CDROMs with no problem (e.g., no errors from my CD Burning program).

However, once I begin the FC2 installation, I reach the section of the installer that offers to check the installation CDROMs for errors. MY CDROMs always fail this check!!!

Is this a known issue? Am I doing something incorrect? Help!

If you got through the md5sums ok, I would go ahead and skip the cdrom check.

Thank you, homey -- but in fact what happens to me is that the install fails, citing corrupted media or a failed checksum (which obviously isn't the case).

I have only tried 2 different brands of CD-RW for these ISO images, but I'm tempted to rule that out as a problem since I have used the same CD-RW spindle to create other CDROMs from ISO images... Weird, ain't it?

Could you try burning them at a lower speed or even trying a different cdrom device?

Good thought...

I had not thought of burning the ISO image at a slower speed. Thank you, I'll give that a shot!

Smile Slower burn speed resolved problem

Friends,

I was able to rectify the problem by using the provided suggestion -- burning the ISO images at a lower speed.
