Ok I have been trying to burn a dvd+rw disk for a week now and its driving me crazy.
With out ranting on i want to make a backup of personal data to a dvd+rw disk using a hp dvd-writer 300n
First i created an iso image of the dir where all my data is with mkisofs
and the try to burn it using dvdrecord :
dvdrecord dev=sr0 speed=4 /home/user/cdbackup.iso
but i get the error message:
Portions (c) 2002-2003 Ark Linux <email@example.com>
Cdrecord 1.11a15 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 Jörg Schilling
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
dvdrecord: Permission denied. Cannot open 'sr0'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
dvdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
Also when i try to mount the drive i get:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrecorder/
mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
or too many mounted file systems
I dont if that has anything to do with the problem or not ?
I'm close to giving it up
