Default Help burning Ubuntu ISO

I've done what it says on the Ubuntu site and got InfraRecorder. Everything goes fine until I go to start burning the disc. After I click the ubuntu file I want to burn, a dialog box comes up but it won't let me click the 'Ok' button so I can't burn the disc... Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong?

P.S. I'm 100% new to actually doing this (I usually just read).

Here is something that you can try. Drag the iso file to your cd burner drive. Then you should be able to open that drive and be able to burn the iso to a cd. I haven't used InfraRecorder, or even heard of it. Try it that way and see what happens. This is for windows, which i am guessing you are using.

Cheers!

When i need to burn ISO's i use ISORecorder, a powertoy for windows xp.
It's pretty easy to use because you just double click the ISO file and follow the wizard. Also, if you still have problems, do you know for sure that you have a CD Burner/Blank CD?

Arrow Please Don't Mess With Ubuntu

This OS has been known to cause alot of trouble. I've had clients come to me in tears because this particular operating system has ruind their computers. They tried to find help online as tey had tried to reverse the damage before coming to me: but, not much was found except others lamenting about the same exact issues. It may do you well to read these links;

This is just to name a few. I don't doubt that many have had positive experiences with it: however, the negativ seems to out weigh the good at this point--at least as far as I can see.
