What has happened to the ability to use "of=/dev/sr0"? I am certain that I used to be able to burn an image directly to a CD/DVD with "dd", but now it always complains that "/dev/sr0" is a read-only filesystem. Have I lost my mind and this was never possible?

You could try formatting a DVD-RW and then a command like this:

Code:
wodim -vv dev=/dev/sr0 -sao -fs=500m -speed=4 < dd if=/home/sam/image.iso
OR

Code:
dd if=/home/sam/image.iso | wodim -vv dev=/dev/sr0 -sao -fs=500m -speed=4
But I think wodim will fail without a filename as the last argument. I vaguely recall utter failure when I once attempted to work this out.

OK AM, if you say it can't be done, then it can't. I guess my memory is faulty. Thanks.

AFAIK, only DVD-RAM disks could be written to that simply.
