I said, "Booting LM from the DVD disc iso file I made ...." This should be an iso image and not a file.

What kind of machine is it? I've seen a few of those with some types of hardware.

I used CDBurnerXP
The DVD iso image was done on a 2.15 GHz AMD Athlon XP with board First Intl. Computer Inc AM39L PCB .x (XP Home SP3)
USB stick was done on a 2.80 GHz AMD Athlon ll X2 240 with board ASRock N68-S (XP Pro SP3)
if this is the relevant info you ask for.
Any other info I can give please ask - thanks for your interest/analysis.

The DVD case says 4X and the memory stick took about 20 odd minutes I think -quite slow for both I suppose. So whether slow or fast is more liable for corruption I don't know but I'll try that iso Recorder link for another try - thanks for that.
Strange though that both my attempts gave similar errors when done on two different media on two computers.

I have downloaded the ISO Recorder but I don't understand the 'How to use...'.
The first part says 'To create a CD with ISO Recorder right-click on a file with .iso extension and select "Copy Image to CD"
Then further on it says, Part 2, "To create a disc image insert a CD (DVD) into a drive and right-click on it choosing Create Image from CD option."
Looks like a repeat to me but obviously isn't - please explain.
Oh now I see in FAQs this: Windows XP version of ISO Recorder does not support DVD operations. You cannot record a DVD image or create a DVD-sized image out of the directory contents. You can still make an ISO file out of a existing data DVD.
Nothing about using memory sticks either so am I stymied?

On both my occasions there seemed to be no choice of size at 995MB. Will look out for the 700MB Live CD option.

That link seems to be a long list of Index of /knoppix whatever that is. Also I see no mention of live, CD or 700MB.
Then there is a warning if one's computer does not support PAE - how to tell?
So if not then use Mint 13 but don't if using certain Samsung laptops.
So not having the time to find out and consider these myriad concerns I'm going to put Linux on the back burner for now but thanks to all responders to my queries.

Now I see cd is mentioned but with redhat - anyway I will rest.

This is the one that you want: http://mirrors.kernel.org/knoppix/ADRIANE-KNOPPIX_V7.2.0gCD-2013-07-28-EN.iso this will allow you to burn it to a CD then go into your boot devices and boot from CD. Its the same process as with Ubuntu, and I Know for a fact that Knoppix is in deed a livecd.
PAE = Physical Address Extension to allow one that has 32bit processors to use more then 3.5gigs of RAM.
