Re: Trying to write iso images to CD



Have you tried the '-dao' or '-data' options?

I had a lot of trouble burning my FC3 iso until I used the '-data' option out of desparation.
I was having DIFFERENT trouble than you, though, so this may not be your solution.


It seems like you wouldn't need '-data',
but after adding '-data' I burned them all with no problem.
Actually,
I added both -doa and -data
and ran cdrecord from a terminal with no X
and with no X running anywhere else to reduce traffic on the scsibus.
The last precaution may have been purely superstitious.

My method was not very scientific
as I changed all three of the above parameters at once, but
I was getting sick of throwing away cdrs.
The -dummy mode would work sometimes!

I have an MMC drive, so the -doa was supported.

good luck! SOMETHING will make it work.

I'm now finding the drive OK (in fact, it turns out I can omit device=
completely also), but after some time, I keep getting:

cdrecord: CD/DVD-recorder nor ready.

I tried cdrecord blank=fast, and I get the same thing.
I tried adding the speed= parameter, for various values. Again the
same thing, but somtimes I get
could not load media

instead.

Any suggestions?
