burning an iso troubles

Has anybody successfully burned an iso to cd with ubuntu hoary?

I tried this, and the little 'writing to disk' dialog with the spinning disk icon came up, but no further cpu, cd, or hard disk activity happened.

So, I tried this, changing it to the knopppix iso and dev=/dev/hdb and that didn't work. Part of the output from that is:
bs@bsubuntu:~/download/iso$ cdrecord -v dev=/dev/hdb KNOPPIX_V3.8.1-2005-04-08-EN.iso
cdrecord: No write mode specified.
cdrecord: Asuming -tao mode.
cdrecord: Future versions of cdrecord may have different drive dependent defaults.
cdrecord: Continuing in 5 seconds...

Any suggestions?

I'll have to check dmesg or /var/log/messages and I think there might have been some other stuff in the cdrecord output. I'll do that when I get back into linux. I decided to reboot into W2K so I could burn the CD today. I wanted to burn the newest knoppix and see if I could use it to troubleshoot why my Win98 machine started BSODing whenever I ran anything on it. It was running F@H and then BSOD'ed and has BSOD'ed after any attempt to do anything now. Actually, I just want to see if I can get some files off of that machine with knoppix so I can go ahead and reformat it and throw slackware on it.

I didn't want to have to spend all day becoming a cdrecord expert.
