Newbie here - my burner won't burn!

Hello everyone. I have a NU DVDRW DDW-082 burner that I haven’t really tried to use since I got it.

Well, I wanted to burn a linux ISO to CD, so I downloaded ISO recorder and when I try to burn it is almost immediately says “General error”

So I downloaded DVD Power Burner and the same thing happens, except the message is more specific: failed to write pre-gap data. I’ve tried a couple different CDs from my CD spindle but they all do the same thing.

I also tried IMGBurn, and it gave me some complicated error message, the only understandable thing it the message was something about “Unable to recover TOC.”

Any other suggestions?

Anyone know what I’m doing wrong?


It could be a damaged ISO file.

Try to download it again.
