Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to write some directories to that blank CD and when it comes to the burning step it says disk not found
Also, even when I put a non-blank data CD in the CD-R and click it, it still says disk not found
Are you saying I need to do
? Then why does k3b see the device if it's not already mounted?
Originally posted by michaelk Devices and filesystems are not the same thing. You mount the filesystem not the device. A blank CD does not contain a filesystem.
What distribution and kernel are you running?
Exactly. You can write to a CD without mounting it. In fact, this is what you should do. You don't have to mount a device to use it. For example, when you write a floppy image to a floppy, you write directly to /dev/fd0, no mounting required. Same to CDs.
Not too sure about the CD-R thing, I just thought I'd throw in my $0.02
