Re: DVD creation for Iso download.

Good Morning:

I have downloaded the Rel 10 Fedora iso from the website (general link) so the files is F10-i686-live.iso to my windows desktop.

I have tried to create a dvd on two different machines that I write DVD's to all of the time. So this is not my first attempt at creating a DVD.
In this case, I am telling Roxio to burn an image.

Roxio tells me everything is complete and ejects the DVD. When I take the DVD and try to explore, there isn't any information on the DVD.

Why?

The most likely reasons are (a) you created a media with a single file which is the ISO, rather than burning the image (Windows software needs to be told to burn an image as-is, some won't), or (b) you burned a CD image on a DVD, which works with some systems and not others. Don't ask why, some burners burn it right, some BIOS read it right, some people spend time arguing that "it should work," but others just avoid doing that. Some people have hardware which works that way and claim "it works for me" means it's good, reliable, portable practice.

Very high probability one of those two things is your problem, I lean toward not having burned the image, but I would check both.
