What CD burning program to use?

What CD recording program is best to copy a data CD with directories that I want to leave intact and the size of the CD is about 750 meg? The copy medium is a CD-R.

well you first need to make an iso image of the stuff you want with rockridge extensions which means it wont truncate the filenames.

So let's say your dir structure is like this:

If you want the root of the cd to contain file1,file2,file3,dir1, and dir2, then you must do this:

mkisofs -r -o name.iso foo

Then you use cdrecord to burn that iso onto a cd:

cdrecord -v dev=1,0,0 speed=10 -data name.iso

type "cdrecord -scanbus" to figure out which 'dev' is your cd burner.

Hope this helps.
