Nero won't burn an ISO

    I've got an 809 MB ISO image that I want to burn to DVD+R, but Nero
    refuses, saying that it cannot write to the media. Other ISOs have
    all burned fine, and have been larger in size (around 2 GB each).
    I am using the exact same media for all burns too. Size seems to be
    the reason for the refusal... any ideas on how to force it to burn?

  2. You might check the iso for completeness or download errors. Most probably
    you can get a md5sum and compare (there are programs for windows to do
    that), or use some thing like winiso or daemon/virtualcd to (try to) mount
    and check out that iso first, before you attempt to burn it.

    It's an ISO that I created, so there's no errors with it. :)

  4. Hopefully, but sometimes sh*t hits the fan. Test it with some program that's
    able to mount it (maybe nero virtual drive can also mount the iso).

    I prolly am wrong on this but doesn't a *.iso file have to have a
    corresponding *.cue or *.bin file for Nero to burn it.

    No, the iso file doesn't need a cue file. Btw. most cue files (the small
    ones) contain not much more then the name of the *.bin or *.img file to
    burn :)

    No. Recall that I said it burns my other self-created ISOs with no
    problem... the only difference is the size of them. For some reason,
    Nero doesn't want to burn this smaller one.
