Look at the contents of the cd on some pc. If it only has one file, you didn't burn it as an image file.

That file is a complete image of the MandrakeMove cd. You've probably made a data cd and put the ISO file into the data cd's filesystem by mistake. If you use K3b to write your cd's then the right option is under "Tools | CD | Burn CD Image". The dialog that comes up will ask you for the image to burn. Just put the name of the iso file in that box and you're all set. Other CD writing applications have a similar option hidden in their menus somewhere.

Sorry, don't sure of what to do.

Using Nero to burn the cd, just selected the iso file from the right directory and burned it... so made a copy of the downloaded file from the net.

The file on the cd is the right size ( 616 mo ), and i use md5 checksum to be sure everything was ok.

Did i made something wrong ??
