Re: [vox-tech] Burning CD's in Linux

What sort of burner do you have?  Is it SCSI, or is it IDE, or USB?
Personally, I have a IDE, and the procedure I follow is(as root)

modprobe ide-scsi
modprobe sg
modprobe sr_mod
cdrecord -scanbus

And then it shows my drive.  To burn data, you have to first create an iso
with mkisofs, but the general command I use is:
cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=8 -data -dao /tmp/myiso.iso

For music, its a bit more complex, and I personally find it MUCH easier to
burn from within windows(my windows burner is also quite a bit faster than
my linux one, though I don't make as many coasters with linux.)
