    Problems writing Vista DVD iso to DVD...

    Hi all,

    This sounds like a really silly question.
    But I am having (apparently) severe problems writing the Vista downloaded
    ..iso to DVD.

    I know it is a disk image (I have done the write countless times with .iso
    for Linux etc) and when I try to write with Nero, I get read errors in the
    last segments of the disc.

    I have downloaded Vista twice, but continue to get verification errors...
    Has anyone else had these problems?
    I do not want to trust a 'bad disc' for a Vista install.

    Any yes:

    a) I have tried 4 different makes of DVD
    b) I have tried 2 recorders (which previously wrote fine)
    c) I have written at the slowest possible speed
    d) I have tried another writing program as well as Nero.

    QUESTION - will an extracted ISO which is obviously many seperate files, be
    expected to verify after writing or am I assuming there is a problem when
    there is none? The ISO is of course one file, the written extrected disc
    contains many files.

    Please advise!!

    Where did you get the download from????? (-;

    If you obtained it from Microsoft, you could have copied the SHA hash number
    and then compared the downloaded file against this hash. If the file checks
    OK, then you got a good download. If it doesn't - you need to download it
    again.

    Now, if you didn't get it from Microsoft - well, you will just have to
    figure it out on your own!

    I got it FULLY OFFICIALLY from Microsoft.

    I have checked the SHA1 hash and it was fine each time I downloaded it.
    The comparison was correct.

    So I am therefore totally puzzled about the so called 'verification errors'
    from Nero and another program.

    I have never used Nero to burn the DVD. But I have used Roxio Easy Media
    Creator to bun the DVD's about 12-15 times. I have never had a problem using
    Roxio.

    Are you burning within Windows XP? You should.

    You can use ISO Recorder, a free power toy for Windows XP. Here's the
    website http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm

    and the download link

    Re: Problems writing Vista DVD iso to DVD...

    Ok I copied the DVD file to another computer with a Sony recorder..
    The others were Panasonic on XP x64 - but they have never had a problem like
    this..

    But on the other computer running 32 bit windows, it wrote and verified ok..

    Using of all things Ashampoo Burning Studio 5.
    It is now installing. There was (with the versions with errors on the disc)
    an installation error detected during unpacting of files - but this time it
    has run through and has nearly completed the install.

    So it obviously was a disc write error (I tried a couple of programs to
    verify the SHA1 and both gave the same, correct value). But it's really odd..
    Maybe a bug in x64 but I can't believe that.

    Will report if Vista installed ok, and thanks for the advice.

    Cheers all.
