    Another booting issue... Buffer I/O read error

    I just dowloaded a Knoppix live CD, and booted it successfully on VMware, as an ISO file from a virtual drive.

    Then i burnt it on a CD (following the FAQ), and I came to boot an old P3 500Mhz ...not more than 128 Mb ram with it.
    Well, I got so far as the desktop background, and then nothing:

    however, on ttl1
    There was a long list of the following errors:

    Buffer I/O read error on device cloop0, logical block 843287
    cloop: Read error at pos 620873442 in file /cdrom/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX 102072 bytes lost.
    cloop: zlib decpmpression error -3 uncompressing block 13176 .....

    and the list contiues in this nature

    Am i right in assuming that the CD did not burn properly? or could it be something else?

    Thanks

    From what you describe it could be a bad burn. It also could be an optical drive that has become marginal due to dust and oil in the optics. And I would also try booting with the nodma cheat code (there is only a small chance that will help but it seems worth trying).

    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.
