  Howto burn an ISO image

All the CD-Writing software can use ISO images to burn directly to a CD-Rom.
Important note: take care to download the ISO in binary mode (FTP). By default Netscape may download the file in ASCII mode which corrupts the image. You can check the integrity of the ISO file with the md5 key (md5sum mulinux-11x.iso under Linux), go to to get the md5sum.exe version if you are using Windows)
Please avoid downloading the ISO with a 56K modem line. If the download fails you can use "Resume" which allows you to continue the download. It works with ftp (reget), ncftp, CuteFTP, Getright, ...

  With Easy CD Creator

Open Easy CD Creator Go to "File" then to "Create CD from disc image" make sure to change the bottom drop down menu ("Files of type:") to say "ISO image files"
It will do the rest after you browse to the *.iso file (Thanks for zacheyer)

  With WinOnCD

you can select a "track-image" project when you click the New button. So long as you are in track mode, not file-system mode (how that looks depends on whether you have 3.0 or 3.5) then dragging a track image file onto the CD window should accept it as a raw track. WinOnCD uses .RAW as its own extension (Thanks Rick Jones)

  With Nero Burning Rom

Open Nero. Close the wizard if it is started automatically. Go to "File" then to "Burn Image...". In the next dialog, click on "Image Files (*.nrg)" and select "All files (*.*)". Choose the .iso file and accept. In the following dialog make sure:

  • Type of Image is: Data Mode 1
  • Block size: 2048
  • Image header: 0
  • Image trailer: 0
  • All the checkboxes are unactive.
  • Click "OK".
  • In the next dialog check that the "write" and "finalize" option are active.
  • Click on "Write".
(Thanks Antonio Asensi)

  With CD-Record

This requires LINUX, or muLinux as well.

For example:

	cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=4,0 mulinux-11x.iso 
You get the number on the SCSI bus number with "cdrecord --scanbus"
