Can you burn an ISO image on a non-empty cd?
    #4030729 - 04/08/05 02:16 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

and make it work? The ISO is only 50 mb.
I'm out of empty CD's, but I have some near-empty cd's.

Need on cd. It's a linux installation ISO, to get ftp-installation started.

This isn't exactly answering your question but you can burn iso's to CD-RW's. Then you can empty them whenever you want ...

Well if its somthing like a linux install you gonna need a new cd. Depending on if u need to boot off the cd and if the partially filled cdr hasnt been finalized i supose you could use somthing to extract the contents of the iso(i think winrar will) then use whatever your proggy is to write the contents of the iso you extracted out. CDrs are so damn cheap just burn a new one. I got some 200+ blank cdrs still elft from all the free after rebate deals that used to go on.

Right, a non-finalized cd-r can have more data added to it at any time. Usually with music cd's the software will finalize the disk unless you change the settings. Like baraka said above, if you want to be able to boot from the cd you will need a new cd and make a bootable cd from that.

The ISO file is like a map and the starting point will amost always be at the beggining of the disc. I say almost because it should be possible, with the right tools, to create an ISO that starts somewhere besides the beginning of the disc but the question remains... why??? Also, doing so may be in violation of the ISO format; it is a standard after all. This is all to say that no ISO being shared on the net will be designed to start anywhere but the beginning of the disc. Basically, when you placed the original data on your disc you created an ISO. Assuming you now have an ISO file designed to start at an arbitrary point I would still expect it to have to map part of itself to the beginning of the disc. A part that has been written to prior in your case.

I'm not exactly sure what finalizing does. However, if you are on unix-like OS you should issue the command: "cdrecord blank=help" for some options about blanking the CD.

If you are on windows you should download cdrtools from the gnuwin compilation anyway. It comes with cdrecord and the other command line cdr stuff. The good fellas have ported all the tools to winodows Its a nice package for the command line that is really friendly on resources.
