    Problem in LiveCD in Knoppix?

    I downloaded Knoppix 17-5-2004 version.After burning successfully and booting from CD, it started Live CD then it said,
    Looking for CDROM in: /dev/scd0 then scanned something and said,
    Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, Sorry Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.
    Press reset button to quit.
    Please help me why is this happening? !

    You managed to burn it but maybe it is corrupt, Download your versions .iso.md5 from here. I now assume you have a working Windows machine so download a md5 hasher like this one (Not used/tested it sorry) run it and use it to create a hash of the knoppix iso file then compare the hash from the program to the hash in the .iso.md5 file, Then if they dont match your file is corrupt. HTH

    Well I downloaded Karen's Hasher.For the Knoppix.iso when I computed I got the hash as 7EE0382655ABF194AA300A98100CACDE
    Then Should I also have to compute the hash for that .md5 file or just compare that value with that .iso hash value?
    When I opened that .md5 with notepad the value was,
    7ee0382655abf194aa300a98100cacde *KNOPPIX_V3.4-2004-05-17-EN.iso
    But when I pasted this value into that text window and clicked on compute tha value was DC45CECCB080323CB0CB0B6455A4FB4A
    And status for both was OK. So anything wrong?

    Its the hash inside the .md5 file and seems to me they match so we know the iso is not corrupt

    Yours -> 7EE0382655ABF194AA300A98100CACDE
    Theres ->7ee0382655abf194aa300a98100cacde

    But i found this when searching the error Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem it suggests switching off DMA.

    at Boot type: Knoppix nodma
