This is often a side effect of what I have been told is a poor specification
in the DVD industry regarding writing at > 1x speed, in that certain
requirements were set for that speed but not for higher speeds.

I have had much better luck with DVD data portability if I always
burn DVDs at 1x (or as close to it as the DVD firmware will allow),
particularly when it comes to burning on one system and reading on
another.

Hello Devin. I heard that about audio CD's as well. Some
that are burnt on a PC at home will not play properly on a
car CD player. The answer was to burn at a lower speed as
possible.

I try to burn my data CD's and DVD iso's at a low speed as
possible.

Kind Regards,

Keith Roberts

I used K3B in Fedora 15 to burn the DVD image. I changed the speed to
1x, but K3B reported the burn speed as 2.4x - I guess it couldn't go any
lower.

The newly burnt image didn't boot either. The error was the same.

So sad.

Regards,

Ranbir

A shot in the dark: my DVD image burned by K3B won't also boot. Using
Brasero and all was fine. Not reproducable, but worth the attempt.

My successful burns (although not tried with CentOS 6 yet) have been
using growisofs directly:

growisofs -speed=1 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=image.iso

Hi Ranbir.

Did you check the integrity of the downloaded iso image
before burning it?

Can you try to burn the iso on different machine
at a slow speed. See if it boot then?

The download is good. I made sure to do the checksum before burning the
image.

I already tried that: it won't boot.
