data disc created using windows

Postby soulwarfare on Fri Mar 23, 2007 9:53 am

I hope this isnt a daft question. Ive recently made a data disc using Roxio on
windows with a few files and films on it. but Linux doesnt seem to recognise the disk when loaded in my DVD drive. At first i thought it might be a problem with Roxio. last night I tried again using Nero. again disc not recognised. I had the same problem using Mandriva 2007 is it a Linux thing or do i need to load a prog into mint for it to recognise a disc created using windows.
cheers Ian

Well, you don't need anything special... Linux should read the data on the disc without any problem.. unless you're burning a special filesystem on the DVD.. it's supposed to be ISO-9660.

Unless your using a cd rw and made the disc using the drag to disc software, then it is seen as closed by any non roxio or nero system.

or the regular cd disc you made was not closed, then again, it won't be available except to the program you made it with

edit yes, I see you said dvd, not cd, just throwing ideas out for anyone else who might build off this.

Are you dragging and dropping the iso to be burned? I know in nero, you actually have to choose "burn iso to cd" from one of the menus on top. Draging and dropping only burns it as a data file on the cd.

it isnt an iso im burning just some mp3s a divx file and some pics
just picked the data disc option and added the files it should just load up.
as I mentioned earlier the film plays in my dvd player so the actual disk must be
ok. if I load it into my pc with xp it just opens in explorer and I can access the files.
both pcs have the same model of dvd writer installed too.
weird or what!

The solution is found in the direction af bigbearomaha's answer. Look around in your settings so that you don't enable something nero/roxio specific
Also try to burn again and close the disc and be sure to use ISO 9660

Same problem

Postby digitalzombie on Fri Mar 30, 2007 6:31 am

I don't know how to check for the MD5 or the ISO 9550 ... I used nero and ISO recorder v3 on vista. My Window Xp ISO works but the ISO for brea does not work.

Can someone help me? >,>

Digitalzombie, what do you mean?

My Window Xp ISO works but the ISO for brea does not work.

What ISO for XP?
MD5 is checked using a MD5 checker - obvious :)
ISO 9660 (note the denomination) is selected when you burn the ISO - slowly, 2x or 4x no more
