CD Recording


I need to record a CD. If anyone knows anything about Fedora Core 2 let me know. I dont know if it comes standard with software or if I need to unpack an rpm.

Please let me know.

The standard Linux CD burning util is called cdrecord. While it works quite well, it's command line only and the interface can be a bit daunting for newbies. There are graphical front ends such as K3B and Xcdroast, so you should see if you have those packages installed.

I just installed K3B, but it has gotten stuck scanning for CD devices or something such as that. If you could I would love a walk through on how to use cd record or a point in the right direction so I can copy a cd.

All I need to do is copy a CD so if anyone can help with this matter I would absolutely love it!

In the mean time I will try myself.

Thanks,
JS

What distro are you using? And more importantly, what kernel (check the results of uname -r). In pre 2.6 kernels, you had to use SCSI emulation to burn CDs , but with 2.6 it is no longer necessary. Providing this info will help us walk you through the correct sequence of commands.

One thing you'll want to do is convert the image of the CD you want to copy into an ISO. If your CD drive is /dev/hdc you can do

dd if=/dev/hdc of=somefile.iso

as root.

I am using Fedora Core 2. I do have 2.6 on my kernel. I havent tried making the cd into an iso yet... Also is there a way to make a bootable cd? If so please let me know. I am somewhat new to linux though I have had it installed on my computer for about 2 months.

Let me know what I can do.

Yes my K3B freezes on me so I dont know what is up. I am on kernel 2.6 :-/ I am on an i686 kernel and the install of course was i386. Would that possibly be part of the problem? I am going to restart and see. Thanks to everyone so far

Nevermind on the freezing issue. As well as the copy CD issue I have K3B working now I am wondering if there is a way I can make a bootable CD?

Thanks,
JS
