Windows XP SP1.
I just got an .iso file, (CD image), from a friend who owed me a copy of 'x' program, and I finally got it on a CD, great. I put the CD in, nothing happens.
OK, probably no autorun system. I go to the disc, and it's a burned disc with the ISO as the file. Crap.
I put the ISO image on my hard drive and get some freeware/trial programs to burn it (ISO Recorder Power Toy, MagicISO) and took out a blank disc I had, put it in the drive, and began burning the ISO to the disc with MagicISO.
I wait a few minutes because my CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive can only burn at 4x, and when the disc finally pops out of the tray, I put it back in and get ready to run the program.
I open the disc from My Computer, there's nothing written to it.
I do the SAME thing with the ISO Recorder Power Toy, same thing! The disc is STILL BLANK
I know my drive can burn because it's done it before.
I've tried enabling drag-and-drop on the disc, but in retrospect, I'm not 100% sure why I thought that would help...
anyways, anyone got any ideas? I want to have my PC dual-boot with Gentoo Linux/XP by the end of the week and the only file type it comes in is ISO...
