but it doesn't work. The message is that /dev/cdrom isn't a valid device. Then I typed
and the showed messages are:
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01.01a01 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 Jörg Schilling
NOTE: this version of cdrecord is an inofficial (modified) release of cdrecord
and thus may have bugs that are not present in the original version.

The original author should not be bothered with problems of this version.
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
cdrecord: For more information, install the cdrtools-doc
cdrecord: package and read /usr/share/doc/cdrecord/README.ATAPI.setup .
I don't know what is happening. Can anybody help me?
Amanda, first things first. What do you get when you type "ls /dev"? Is there a /dev/dvd or a /dev/cdrom? If not, then that's the issue that needs to be addressed first. What type of DVD/CDROM do you have? ATA? SATA? USB? Is it actually hooked up? Has it ever worked? Is this a laptop? Other questions of that sort.
