cdrecord - GoldStar CD-RW CED-8080B


Everytime I try to burn a CD my system hangs.

Using RH Linux 8.0 - Grub as bootloader

This is whats in /etc/fstab

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

Scanbus gives me this

[root@localhost hdc]# cdrecord -scanbus

Hi.

Have you had this burner working before? Even with another OS? Cuz it looks like it is doing the right thing until it is actually physically writing to this disc, then it is failing.

That boot up error looks like what you get when you try and mount a CD that is screwed or has no data on it (in my experience anyway).

Yes I have used this burner frequently with WinXP and 98 before that. As far as I know it still works 100%. I will maybe try it with XP to confirm this. Any other ideas would be much appreciated.

Hi.

Maybe double check to make sure that it still does work. Cuz you ain't doing anything wrong as far as I can see.

Give it a go to make sure.

The command I use to record is.....(as super user)

cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=40 -data -dao -pad -v -eject /tmp/image_to_burn.iso

I always have to put the dev= part in my command or it fails.

Thanks
Craig
