Does Ubuntu still suck or what?

Hope didn't offend anyone here but, downloaded the ISO 7.10, burned it
to CD (4 times) and got 4 coasters. What puzzles me is that the mdsum
was OK, and my CD/DVD burner is brand new. Any clues on this one?

A bit of googling seems to find that burning at a much slower speed (as
low as 2x) might go a long way in eliminating the coasters. Others may
chime in with more ideas.

What is the brand name and model of the burner? The CD media? What
burning software was used? Is the burner IDE or SATA?

Why are you blaming Ubuntu for the obvious failure of your CD burner?

The adage is to burn as slowly as your software will allow. I don't know
why this makes a difference, but it does. After making a 7.10 coaster by
burning at 48x, I burned the same iso at 4x, and it worked perfectly.

Yeah. My guess would be that you're an ignorant stooge that doesn't know
how to burn CD's properly.

That's exactly correct, isn't it?

I used Power ISO on a SATA Lite On CD/DVD burner at 4X speed and still
got a coaster. I am running out of software with which I can burn these
image files...
