Description of problem:
I am using Adaptec Easy CD Creator on a Win 98 PC to make a CD-R of the
seawolf-i386-disk2.iso file. The CD Creator software says the CD was
created successfully however when you try to read the cd, Win 98 reports
that the directory on the CD is corrupt. I was able to use the same
method for seawolf-i386-disc1.iso and it worked fine. I have downloaded
seawolf-i386-disc2.iso again and tried to make the CD-R again and got the
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download seawolf-i386-disc2.iso from ftp.redhat.com
2.Use Adaptec EasyCD Creator on a Win 98 PC to create disk from iso image.
3.Try reading disk in any cd-rom drive
Actual Results: Windows Explorer reports that the directory on the CD is
corrupt and unable to read it.
Expected Results: Should have been able to read the CD.
Unfortunately I discovered that disc 2 was no good in the middle of an
upgrade from 2.2.17-22.
Do the MD5 sums match the published ones?
I have the same problem with seawolf-i386-disc1.iso. The MD5 sum of this file
is exactly as published.
CDRWin reports "Error: File length is not a multiple of the CDROM sector size"
Fireburner reports "Warning! C:\download\seawolf-i386-disc1.iso may be corrupt.
Sector size is not a multiple of 2048, 2336, or 2352. Do you wish to continue
importing this file as a track?"
In my case, after taking a second look at things, it turned out to be an
incorrect MD5 Sum. As a side note, if anyone is using a Windows 2000 PC to
burn CDs, I believe that Service Pack 2 for Win 2000 corrreted an issue where
CDs created with easy CD creater were unreadable.
My problem has been solved as well. I was burning an incompleted 10MB download
and doing an MD5 sum on the correct fully downloaded file. And also, even more
confusing to me, Fireburner was burning with my Philips cd burner, but was
incompatible with its DAO-RAW mode, so the burned cd was unreadable. So I used
my other burner with Fireburner to record the iso image, so everything worked
