Hello,

First of all, if this is posted in the wrong section then please move it.

Now onto my problem.
I've download the latest backbox and trying to burn it on a DVD.

I'm using ImgBurn to burn the iso. Everything goes fine and the ImgBurn also verifies if everything is burned.

However, when I check the in My Computer, it's completely empty. But when I check the back of the DVD, you can see that the DVD has been written on.

I've tried several times, but no luck.

Kind regards.

Stupid question, but, i guess which you reboot your pc after burned the dvd, right??

Well try to use other software and see if that works. ..

Other thing why don't you use a usb drive? that's much better and quicker to load then a DVD. If you're going to do that install LILI USB creator. You could even download the iso from that software.

here's the link

I love this software much easier and stuff.

@weVeg
MD5 matched up.

And yes, I've rebooted to see if it would boot up from the DVD.

@Malachai

Looking for other software might be a good idea indeed.
I've already tried the tutorial with unetbootin but that gets stuck at the bootmenu.

I'll have a look a LILI USB creator.



Thank you both for the replies.

l just used 'UNETBOOTIN' to install it on an sdcard [with persistence] first and then installed it on my netbook. Works great on both.
