    Question dd won't burn iso image

    I downloaded a live cd iso image from factory but can't get it to burn.
    Code:
    laptop:/downloads # dd if=./openSUSE-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64-Build0416-Media.iso of=/dev/sr0 bs=4K
    dd: opening `/dev/sr0': Read-only file system
    laptop:/downloads # ls -l /dev/sr0
    brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 2010-01-29 22:38 /dev/sr0
    I tried with three blank CDs making sure they were all 700MB first.

    Finally copies the image to windoze where it burned fine. This is the first time dd hasn't worked for me. Made sure the OS was updated but no changes.

    Wrong tool. dd is not a optical media burner. Linux GUI burner tools include k3b, brasero, and a whole heap of others. Also the command tools behind the GUI tools like wodim, cdrecord, growisofs, etc. also work.

    dd is not for burning
    I think you are confusing it - perhaps you used dd for writing a .iso to a usb flash drive? Like making a bootable usb flash drive.
    k3b or gnomebaker or brasero are UI tools

    on the CLI, for a CD, use :

    cdrecord -v dev=/dev/scd0 openSUSE-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64-Build0416-Media.iso

    For a dvd, use :

    growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/scd0=openSUSE-11.2-DVD-x86_64.iso

    Change /dev/scd0 to match your CD/DVD writer device

    Thanks to all for the responses. The GUIs are not working for me, the old problem of cdrecord can't open device. I've followed the advice in threads on this subject but no luck. I'm in the cdrom group, have the codecs from packman, the device is set to all rw, but it won't work.

    Any suggestions on what to look at next?

    Either do it as root or add yourself to the group cdrom :

    group -A you cdrom

    where you = your login name

    As I said in my previous post, I am in cdrom group. I also tried k3b as root but it came back with the error "cdrecord has no permission to open the device".

    Further, I tried you're cli command (for cd). No errors were returned while burning but when I try to boot it the screen flashes once with the bootloader message and then reboots. Maybe a bad download. This came from factory repo and doesn't seem to have a checksum file so couldn't check. Will try downloading it again to see what happens. Will post again after that.

    There was a strange bug reported by other users in another thread where if you go into k3b's configuration settings and change the backend program from /usr/bin/cdrecord to /usr/bin/X11/cdrecord (or the other way, I don't remember), it would work, even though both programs are identical. Try that.

    I'll try that in the morning. I tried again as root with a newly downloaded file which burned partially then had an error

    Mmm, I wouldn't try to burn a CD at 24x on CD-Rs made in India. Even with a good brand of media I stick to a slower speed like 10 or 12x. Try it with a lower speed, using the speed= option of cdrecord/wodim.
