How To Burn An ISO Image : Ubuntu
I was working on a project the other day with a friend and he was having some trouble burning an .iso image of one of the Ubuntu 7.04 Herd releases. He asked me about installing gnomebaker or K3B for burning the image. While I have used both of those programs I found that a disk image can be burned very easily directly from the the file location. Here are a few steps to burning a disk image in three clicks.
- First, you’ll need to have a .iso image available for burning. This could be located on your desktop, home folder or I’ve even burned an image using this method over on NFS connection. You’ll also need a blank CD or DVD in the drive.
- Once you’ve selected your disk image you can right-click the .iso file and select “Write to disk…” (two clicks)
- This will open a dialog box letting you verify the disk type, size and burn speed. If all is correct (which it normally is) you can click Burn. Sit back and relax. Your disk will be finished in just a few minutes. (one click)
Done. When finished it’ll ask if you’d like to Eject, Burn Another Copy or if you’re just Done. So very easy.
I find this method much faster and a little more intuitive than the other cd / dvd burning applications. Not to say they aren’t great apps, but if you’re just burning a simple disk image this should be a bit faster. I’ve also had far fewer coasters using this method than I have with the others.
