if its supposed to be 2532 and i burnt it at 2048 what would happen?

2,048 bytes/sector = data alone

2,352 bytes/sector = data wrapped in Sync, Header, Subheader, EDC and ECC. See diagram below:

If you burn it with the wrong sector size, your burner will either reject the burn, or you'll end up with a coaster if the burn goes through. Therefore, you should use CDmage to find out the sector size of your image file.

When you burn a 2,048 sector size ISO, your burner automatically generates and adds in the overhead mentioned above.
