CD-RW Help


I'm trying to burn some CD's using Linux (Fedora Core 1).

I can successfully burn to CD-R's and CD-RW's using the following command (which I actually learned from this site)

mkisofs -R -o opt.iso /opt;cdrecord dev=1,0,0 opt.iso

Everything is coming out perfect except:

What if I want to re-write to a CD-RW and use it again? What do I need to do differently?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Carl

Not sure I understand your answer?

Are you saying to run this command before I run my command?

Sorry, I should have been more clear. My command is to erase a cd-rw.

I need to run your command to erase the CD.

Then my command to write on it again.

Thanks for the info

You only need to erase a cd-rw after you burnt something to it.
