Unable to create CD from Mandriva PowerPack 64 Bit iso


I downloaded the Mandriva PowerPack 64 Bit ISO but am unable to burn a DVD from it. I thought it was a bad download but I've downloaded it twice via http and torrent.
I tried burning it on a Mac using Toast, Windows using Nero, and Ubuntu using k3b.
Any idea what I could be doing wrong? Is there another program or way I should try burning it? I can't wait to install it on my new notebook and finally had the 32 bit iso work after several tries also (worked on k3b) but am unable to get the 64 bit iso to work.

What error message gives K3b ?
File to big ?
Could not find the iso
Please be more specific about the problem

K3b verifies the md5 correctly and burns it. The problem is none of the computers will recognize the burned DVD.

K3b : Tools > > "Burn_DVD_ISO Image.."
is the option to use.

Nero : 'Burn an image file' or 'Burn as an image'

The most common mistake is burning a data DVD,
which is not making a boot able DVD, just a copy
of the image file.
