    Detect and Mount CD-ROM

    I've searched for hours on the internet, but I can't find anyone with the same error, however there is a similar error which you probably know about, please do not confuse that error with this. I get the following error when trying to install Kali linux:

    Detect and mount CD-ROM:
    Incorrect CD-ROM detected
    The CD-ROM drive contains a CD which cannot be used for installation
    Please insert a suitable CD to continue with the installation

    I have Kali Linux ISO burnt to my CD, so when I start my PC, I am greeted with the normal Kali page, but when I try to install, the above error occurs. Could somebody please help me solve this? And if there is no way to solve it, tell me how to get back to my old Linux version so I can retry this?

    Thanks

    CD were used to be popular before the ice age came. This generation uses USB flash drives for installing OS.

    Same thing happened to me. I just opened a shell and typed "mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /cdrom", and then i could continue with the installation

    Isn't it better to use USB instead?
