Why do you need to read what's in the image to burn it? If you're looking for a command line CD burner, you can use cdrecord.

If you do indeed want to access the files in the image, then you mount it with the mount command (e.g. "mount -t iso9660 -o loop image.iso /mnt/tmp" will mount image.iso on /mnt/tmp). Read the man page for mount ("man mount") for more details.

You could always use cdrecord from the cli - if you really want to.

Code: Select all
cdrecord -v speed=4 driveropts=burnfree dev=/dev/scdx xxxx.iso

where xxx is your iso to burn.
