Well, first, in the file browser, I tried right-clicking on the ISO file 
and selecting the option "Write to disk." It didn't even finish writing. 
It abruptly said, "Input/output error."

I tried it again with Gnomebaker, using the disk-image tool. Same result.

Then I did set the speed to 1x. It got about 25% done, and then said, 
"Input/output error. Write failed. Closing disk."

Then I did something else: I transferred the ISO file to a Windows 
machine, and used different hardware, different software, and even a 
different operating system. And that's when I got a message that said, 
"Please insert a compatible media." And the compatible media that it 
wanted me to insert was a CD, not a DVD.

I also had the Live CD ISO. And I was able to burn that without a 
problem. I've since used it, and it's good. It's bootable and does 
everything that it should, as far as I can tell.

I suppose that the thing to do is just get the CD set and have done with it.

I've never had this trouble with any other ISO in any other context. But 
come to think of it, I've never been able to burn a Fedora Installation 
DVD ISO, either.
