I am trying to download ubuntu onto a blank CD and I followed the steps from their website and downloaded CDBurner CP Pro but whenever I am trying to open the file from the CD it says Error:5 Description Invalid Procedure call or argument.

Excellent choice :-D

With an AMD64 you have the option to run an x86_64 version.

x86_64 runs both 64bit and 32bit code with only a few minor headaches.

It's faster too :-D
