    Burning ISO images to DISC using cdrecord. HELP!

    Hi.. newbie here.
    I'm using FC4 and I'm trying to burn FC6 ISO images to discs.
    I have 80min discs which should be sufficient for the ISO images but when I try to burn the ISO images to disc using CDRECORD i receive these messages:

    cdrecord -v -eject speed=8 dev=ATA:1,1,0 FC-6-i386-disc1.iso

    Could anyone help? Is it a problem with the discs? they are 700mb/80min discs. Thanks.

    same problem

    I have never gotten over 750 Mb on a 800 mb disk...ever. I am not sure why this doesn't help you but I use the front end k3b for my iso burns and if it isn't under 750 it just doesn't work. I would love to see someone answer your question. and if you find out post it here

    Unhappy Additional..

    Another fact is that the ISO image files for FC6 doesn't even reach 700mb. So I would think that the disc would be more than enough. I do hope someone could provide a resolution or an alternative.

    Question k3b

    doesn't K3b use cdrecord to burn cd's? If it does, won't it have the same problems? I used Xroast to try and burn and had the same problems because it was also using cdrecord to some extent.

    Yes k3b uses cdrecord as a backend, so if you have problems with cdrecord, then its highly likely that you will have problems with k3b.

    burning iso

    I believe the problem lies with the filesystem burned onto the disk it requires space and eats space on the disk so a 800mb disk only will hold 700mb or less overburning is not a good idea just because it doesn't normally work
    that is my two cents try and make your iso smaller
