I have an image of 788 MB and it obviously will not fit onto a cdr. When I attempt to burn the image onto a dvd-r with nero or alcohol 120, it tells me that it cannot be burned onto that particular media type. Is there a way around this? I have a pioneer dvr-104, and dvd-r 1x media. Any help or suggestions highly appreciated!!!
Which app did you use to read the image or did you d/l it? Answer depends on this.
In Nero, .ISO images are always interpreted as CD images
What kind of image is this? I sure hope it is legal If this image is not protected etc, it can be done quite easily…
If this image contains just data (no boot or whatsoever), writing to DVDR is quite easy. There are a few ways to do this:
- Mount the image with some kind of virtual drive (both Nero and Alchohol come with a virtual drive) and copy all the contents to a DVDR with either one of the burning apps
- Extract the contents of the image with a tool like IsoBuster and afterwards, write the data to a DVDR disc
If this image contains some kind of bootsector, it gets a little more complicated. With IsoBuster, you can extract the normal data and the boot sector data separately. Afterwards you can write a DVD-ROM (Boot) type with Nero.
Good luck and report back
you said to mount the imag eonto a virtual drive
which i have done
then you said to put that onto dvdr?
im stuck on that step, please help
