I've tried burning both SMS Native and SMS64 Native to CD, with different software, with no results. I even tried the disks on a different computer to no avail.

I don't believe that the disks are bad, since I've been using the same stack for audio disks.

Have you try to burn them in slower writing speed?
Do you get any error while booting or doesn't boot at all?

I had tried the latest disk at x1.

I don't get any errors on boot. I select to boot from the DVD drive, the disk spins up, the cursor blinks twice, then I boot into my usual drive.

I just did a burn at x16 and had no problems booting it.
If you have Virtualbox or Vmware try to boot your disc in a virtual machine to test that is working at least there...

What software you are using and what method for writing the disc?
DAO (disk-at-once) or SAO (session-at-once) are the preferable methods.

Can you verify disc? As far as I know Nero has verification and CopyToDVD has Inspector.
Inspector is also a free app you can download and verify disc readability.

I tried both ImgBurn and Windows Disc Image Burner. I had each program verify with no errors.

I just checked the MD5 and everything was alright. I'm installing VirtualBox and I'll let you know what happens.

Would it matter that I had been trying SMS64 native extra rather than without the extras?

OK! no need to install virtualbox.
SMS64.Native.CD-Extra.iso is not bootable, and it's like Install disc #2.
You need to burn SMS64.Native.CD-Install.iso and boot.

Ah, got it. Embarassed

Well, now I have a few different versions to play with! Laughing

Thank you for your time!

I can't wait to explore this distro. I saw SMS covered in an article of Linux & Open Source vol.3
