Question CD-RW Hmm...


Greetings,

I am now rid of Camp Bill's software on my machine. Whew......

There is one thing that I was able to do in Windows that I haven't figured
out how to do while using Linux. I'm running SuSE 8.1 with one cd-rom drive and one 48x24x48 Lite-on cd-rw. Can this be configured to be able to
drag and drop a file on my cd-rw icon on the desktop and have it be written
to a cd-rw disc...? That is one thing that I miss being able to do with ms.
I would like to be able to store rpms, tars, etc. on a cd-rw and be able to erase them at a later time. Does this all have to be done from the command
line or is there a gui that can be downloaded that will do this. I have messed around with k3b for a bit and can't seem to get it to do what I'm looking for.
Do I need to create a file system on the disk first?

Thanks,

Freestone

I dunno in KDE, but in nautilus in gnome2.2 (you won't have it yet) there is a cd-record:/// url can you drag stuff into in nautilus then burn. There is probably a kde equivalent....

No packet writing i.e. DirectCD for linux yet. However if you include UDF support you can read your CD-RW.

FYI: Hardware packet writing CDRW drives are just starting to appear on the market. Have no idea whether they will work with linux.
