so i have a dvdrw burner and it works great. but recently i have been trying to burn a copy of an iso i had backed up on my HD. i have burned this iso before multiple times with this burner and software and such. but when it burns it goes all the way to the end (burning on the disk) then it says that the disk is not compatible? disk is then unusable. they are a maxell disks for audio or data. any suggestions?

Howdy:

I guess the first question would be, what is the name of the .iso you downloaded and second question is.. where did you download it from?

Have you tried running a cleaner through the burner?

is is a prgram written by a friend it is not a market program. it is like a calender prog that saves info and has alerts and stuff and so much more. the iso name would be "calb.iso" i had the original he gave me and i made an iso of it myself so i could make copies when i need them, with his permission. now it is giving me this crap.

If you were able to burn a couple other files, then I would think the .iso has been corrupted in some manner.

I tend to agree with Murray, but why not try another iso burning program?

Try Burncdcc from my signature. It is a no frills quick little program strictly for iso files.
If it also fails, I would look at iso corruption.

in the case it is corrupted is there any way to recover without needing the disc to make a new iso?
