    Re: iso problems

    well, its a cd image, even if nothing else sees it as one, buring it directly do a cd with cdrecord in linux (cdrecord dev=/dev/nameofcdwriter MSLNM.iso), problem seems to be non-standard iso (evil microsoft), hopefully windows can read it when on a cd even if nothing else notices it is an iso due to it being a wierd format.

    Re: iso problems

    IsoBuster seems to load the image OK - from within IsoBuster I did a CD Image extraction to bin/cue, then burned that. Seems to work ok - actually burnable and readable after the burn...

    The cygwin based Windows ports of cdrecord burn it ok but create an unreadable CD. Something very odd with that ISO!

    Re: iso problems

    blame microsoft!!!
    maybe either isobuster will convert it or linux will mount it with "mount MSLNM.iso /somerandomdirectory/ -o loop -t iso9660

    if you specify the type as iso9660, you may have more luck than without, perhaps it is readable but not detectable as an iso. if you can do that then mkisofs /somerandomdirectory/ -o newiso.iso
    now burn the iso and it might work.


    if all else fails run:
    while(true); do echo "your software sucks" | mail gates@microsoft.com; done

    Re: iso problems

    Geoff: yeah, file doesnt recognise it as an iso (probably the fault of m$)
    Dont think it is a bad download or anything, most zip utilities will fail to extract all together if the zip file is damaged at all.

    Re: iso problems

    Just tried to mount the iso and got the following:

    Code:
    rshortland@Netadmin:~$ sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 MSLNM.iso /home/rshortland/iso
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
           missing codepage or other error
           In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
           dmesg | tail  or so

    Re: iso problems

    Burn slower or risk data loss, warns Microsoft


    8 July 2006 | Dan Warne | PC Hardware, Windows
    Microsoft has warned public beta testers to burn downloaded Vista ISOs to disc at speeds as slow as 1X or 2X in order to get a reliable burn.

    It says a key reason behind installation failure of Vista is that many DVD burners cannot reliably burn a disc at high speed.

    The interesting tidbit was included in the release notes for the interim update to Vista Beta 2 (build 5456.5; not publicly available) and sheds light on the magnitude of the problem of unreliable DVD burns:

    When burning your DVD’s please do so at 1x or 2x and CRC them when done using the CRC utility posted on the Connect site. The customer experience improvement telemetry that we’ve been getting back on Beta 2 shows that not quite three quarters of setup failures are the result of a failure to read from the media. Testing shows that burning at slower speeds greatly increases the chances of a good burn.

    It has been the subject of rumour for a long time that DVD burning is a risky way of backing up data, because the organic dye layers used in the disc are just that — organic. They decompose over time, so that patches of a burned disc may become unreadable.

    But it has been difficult to get a picture for exactly how great the problem is: the CATS DVD analysers required to scientifically test burned DVDs are rare and incredibly expensive.

    But this sort of data from Microsoft is helpful: statistical analysis on such a wide base of people shows that data integrity on optical discs is a significant problem, even as soon as a disc is burned.
