Ubuntu: Burned DVD/CD from yesterday are blank!



Question:

I just burned a Windows .iso image to a blank DVD. And now it just says blank media, when I read from Ubuntu!

Is it a problem with the .iso image, or because it is a Windows .iso image?

Very troublesome for me. I'm using Brasero Disc Burner.


Solution:1

I've had this happen to me before. The data has clearly been written to the disk if you hold it to the light but for some reason it registers as a blank disk.

Solution:

Toss it in the garbage and try again with another disk. Also, try changing the burn speed; some people say that you are prone to less errors if you burn the disk at a low speed.


Solution:2

Burn it using Ubuntu. The process is really simple: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-ubuntu. If the problem persisted, it might be a hardware problem.


Solution:3

Background:

This is a common issue under Windows, with the default behaviour being to create 'the intent' of burning the data (but not actually encoding).

This can also be caused by drive (hardware) issues; wherein the data is written, but the CD/DVD is not correctly encoded to mark written/unused space (and later appears as still unused/blank).


You need to be more specific:

Are you trying to create an Ubuntu LiveCD?

You likely can't, as Ubuntu (desktop) will NOT fit on a 600MB CD);

OR, just experiencing an issue with writing an .iso file to optical media?
