ISO problems


ken01440

Question

I downloaded a bios bootable flashable update in ISO format. When I use Roxio's "Burn image to disk" option I get a CD with a single file on it called "track1.cda". After being frustrated over this problem I attempted to locate the iso file via windows explorer, then right clicked and Roxio had a context menu option called "Burn with Disk copier". For some reason this option worked like a charm. Why the heck these two methods produced such extreme variations in results? The first created a CD audio track? WTF! it's all hiss noise. Did I miss something?

Glad you found that Disc Copier works as you expected.

 

There's only 1 bit that makes a CD a Data CD or an Audio CD, and apparently that bit got written incorrectly in your first attempt, or, it's being read incorrectly. Without seeing if this is a persistent problem, recreatable both by you and others, it's not something that could be fixed. If you wrote another disc and it worked as expected, I'd have to say it's a gremlin. If you can recreate it, and/or Paul and I can recreate the problem, it'd have to be classified as a bug.

 

Paul duplicated the problem. 2 different methods with Roxio to burn an image to disk produced different results with the same file. Pual tried the "Burn image to disk" and all we both got was a "track1.cda" file which doesn't even exist.

That does sound strange. I've never used the 'Home' screen to burn an ISO and only have used Disc Copier but I may give it a try and see what happens.

Paul,

If interested I have the file I downloaded from Gateway's site you could test and see if you can duplicate. I suspect you will as I'm having a few issues with this "Burn image to disk" feature.

Out of curiousity. Do you have any idea if a created ISO image file can contain data that would require it to be written to a specific media?...CD-R vs DVD-R for example. I just replied to someone with a similar problem as mine dealing with ISO's and writting them to specific media.

I did mean to post a follow up and thanks Ken for doing so.

I'm confused as to why this happens and have not tried this with any other ISO file but plan to do so when I have time.

I'm interested in trying this if you want to send me a private message with the link to download it. I'll try it and post back.

Not sure about the about the 'special' media needed but I would think not. An ISO file is just a container for the information.

That almost follows along with what I noticed in extracting image files. Doing so using Disc Copier, or with Disc and Device Utilities results in different image files, even from the same disc! One of the images will work fine with Disc Image Loader, but not with the DAEMON Tools disc emulator. The other will work okay with the DAEMON Tools, but not Disc Image Loader. The same disc image extracted using ECDC 5, created yet a third image file that works fine with both emulaters! Go figure!
