So, why are you doing this double-burning with openSUSE and then also 
with Windows "Nero"?

What's the reason for doing so?

When you run the CD you will get the option to check the status of the 
CD which will tell you if the CD is OK to use.

Have yo done this? and why do the manual check in the first instance?

With what did you burn Ubuntu 9.10, and the other distros? With OpenSUSE 

I have a very specific reason for asking this because I am trying to 
help 2 people with a problem in running a particular application but one 
is running Ubuntu Lucid and the other running openSUSE 11.3 - and it is 
the one with openSUSE 11.3 who is having the problem with runnint the 

It would also be very helpful if you could let me/us know if you are 
using a 32- or a 64-bit version of the OS.
