Default Cd/Dvd burner

Im not sure if its the wrong settings thats making every cd I try to burn fail.

Im using Nero 7 ultra and the Cd/dvd burner was from my other HP. I was writing at 16x. I think I can burn audio cd's fine, but what im trying to burn now is an image of a cd ( Linux ISO's) onto a cd and it fails everytime.

What can I do ?

If you try to burn an ISO file, you need to burn it as an image so it could be bootable else if you just burn it as a data it won't boot. Open up Nero Burning Rom, select Recorder/Burn Image. Make sure "Finalize disc" is selected. If it still fails, check that the ISO is not corrupted by comparing the md5 checksum or try burning it at a lower speed.
