Thread: Knoppix will not burn

    Knoppix will not burn

    I have just recently downloaded thed newest english release of knoppix, however when I try to burn it it gives me an Error stating "Illegal mode for this track" this is after the copying is completed, during the lead out phase. It did complete the process twice with no errors, but there is no data on the disk. how can I solve this problem.

    Let us know what package or application you are burning the CD with. Also, check that the image you downloaded is not corrupted, by checking its 'md5' sum. If for example you use K3B to burn the iso (as I did today from a download made last night) - it will show you the md5 sum and also the creator of the iso, so as long as the CDR is a 700Mb one (i.e. an 80 minute NOT 74 minute disk) you should be successful.

    Before I moved to Knoppix I used Roxio on W98SE to burn my first Knoppix iso without problems. Please give more information!

    Have you got the patch for Nero it has problems burning ISO's that are close to the full size of the disc it thinks it has to overburn and screws up the CD.

    I finally got a good burn, after creating a six pack of coasters. Any instructions I had found for burning an iso image using Nero referred to older versions;
    Use the following instructions for newer versions of Nero ( Contributed by Anthony P. ) This info comes from. http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/neroburning.html

    "Start Nero
    Choose the menu command "File"->"Burn Image"
    An "Open" file dialog box appears with the following image types supported (*.nrg, *.iso, *.cue)
    Select your download LinuxISO file and click Open
    The "Write CD" dialog box appears with several tabs (Info, Foreign image, Misc, Burn).
    Click the 'Burn' Tab
    Confirm that 'Write' and 'Finalize' are selected
    Click on "Write". Watch it burn. "

    Re complaints about bad burns - I'm curious what you try

    I am just curious of those people that complain about bad burns and stuff.

    1st do you read the faq on knoppix.net about how to burn
    What burners are you using and what OS. I'm using a
    sony cd-rw crx160e with xp home and I do remember there being a mention about first use cdrw for your first burn until you get it right. that is what I did and yes it took me about 10 burns cause it was hard finding info on the nero patch as I was getting most of my info from knoppix.org the german site.

    Well since I burn with linux I never have problems what I find strange about the Nero software is it is obvious that whoever programed it did not know how to calculate using binary sizes for an ISO they got the math wrong and the program thinks the file is too big and to your 1st comment on reading the docs or maybe even searching before asking a question that is an alien concept to many people.
