I'm having great difficulty creating a dban cd. I need to wipe a laptop, but it has no floppy drive so I have to make a cd, which is proving very troublesome. I have the .iso file downloaded, but when I burn it to a cd using CDBurnerXP the cd has only one file present.But the FAQ reads "If you burn DBAN to CD-R and see just one file when you open the CD-R afterwards, then you have burned DBAN incorrectly." So I'm completely lost. Can somebody please help?
I will also try to create the CD based on given instruction because my notebook does not have floppy drive. However, I would like to wipe an external 40GB drive attached to my notebook via USB and not the C: drive of my notebook. Will DBAN be able to wipe out the external drive only and leave my notebook's C: drive unharm and intact?
The dban-1.0.x cannot wipe external disks.
Wiping only one disk is easy to botch. I wouldn't try to do it.
