How do I burn a cd with cdrecord?


Hi all,

I would like to 1. Burn some mpg's to cd and have them readable I a windows box. and 2. I have some mp3's that I would like to burn to cd and have them readable by a cd player. If someone could give me a step by step, that would be great. I know how to burn iso's (cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc speed=16 -eject name_of_iso.iso.

Thank You
-Joey

well, what i would do is install xcdroast
it burns audio cds pretty easily, data cds (with joliet windows support) very easily, and can even burn dvd's if uv got a dvd writer (with the install of cdrecord-ProDVD)

note that this program is a FRONT END for cdrecord

You can also try k3b Just make sure you've got every thing you need to compile it. you'll need libmad to decode mp3's. havn't tried that disk writer xmms plugin to convert mp3 to wav but you will be ok if you get all that you need to compile keb.

you said that you know how to burn iso's. Well, basically, you want to make an iso of the files you want to burn. mkisofs is the command. this is essentially what xcdroast does at the "master tracks" stage.

I have seen that to, what I would like is a howto. i.e. I have a folder with about 200MB of mpg, how do I burn them to cd.
