Making Live CD help
Went to the system dirrectory, and clicked make live CD, that worked fine, it created an iso file named remaster.iso
I open K3B, and click Burn CD Image, select the iso, insert a blank cdr, and click start, it then reports an error, wrong medium, please insert a dvd-r, I want to make a live CD not a dvd, there are 2 options on K3b to make a cd or a dvd, I am clicking CD, but it still keeps asking for a blank DVD-R Anyone else have this problem, do I need to create the iso differently, or whats the problem.
My iso file is 1.5GB, is that why its asking for a dvd-r, and will a dvd-r work in a drive that doesnt record dvd's?
Any help is greatly appreciated. thanks

Yeah, the file is to big for cd. No a dvd wont burn in a cdrw drive. An alternative is to make a bootable usb 2 gig drive. Just make sure the computer you are going to boot into has that option in bios.

Another option is to install an external DVDRW like Liteon makes. That is what I use to write dvd's on my panasonic laptop. Bought it on ebay for 25.00I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
