Don't understand the burning app in dsl (cdw)


I'm trying to burn an iso file (dsl-411...) unto a blank cd-rw with this app but nothing happens. Before, a few hours ago, I tried to blank another cd-rw but nothing happenned, neither.

My actual (running it right now) OS is DSL 2.4.31 but can't find the version of the said app.

I don't have a hdd but put an external cfcard attachankatever.

Think I need help before turning the machine off & loosing the file.

Thanks for any help on this!

Hi Benny7440, What does the following return?

Code:
cdrecord -scanbus
Good luck. ;-)

Thank you for replying, Peacedog!

The output for the command you suggested follows:

It looks like you'll want to configure device 0,0,0 unless that's the drive your running from?

Here is the cdw manual:

Good luck. ;-)

Thanks for replying, Peacedog!

The device where my DSL is running from is the MuVo one (usb device). I managed to burn the 4.10 ver of DSL into a CD-RW yesterday & it booted up in the VAIO, the machine I used to burn it but it didn't started at the HP laptop.

In any case, at the VAIO I didn't find it easy to establish a LAN connection with DSL so I rebooted & I'm running now Puppy 528... Since the onboard keybaord of the VAIO is faulty I use an external Gateway one with a mouse connected to one of three usb slots at the keyboard itself but neither were detected by DSL.

What do you mean by configuring device 0,0,0? It's the cd or dvd drive at the HP laptop.

This line from the scanbus command tells you what the device is.

Code:
0,0,0 0) 'SONY ' 'DVD+RW DW-P50A ' '1.8e' Removable CD-ROM
Try this.

Code:
cdrecord dev=0,0,0 -speed=8 your-iso-file.iso
Good luck. ;-)
