    The .iso will have the extension, .iso

    Or you may just have the actual files for the program, which then you would need to burn those files as an IMAGE file

    Post a screenshot of the files you are talking about.

    Or just make a list of file names with their extensions.

    -----------------------------------------------

    # cdrecord dban-1.0.7_i386.iso

    Ensure that the /etc/defaults/cdrecord file is properly configured for your

    I don't think you're getting it

    The file that downloads when you select the provided link IS the .iso, there's nothing you need to do other than burn the file as an IMAGE
