Buring Applications that Use Multiple Recorders


Greetings! I have two CD burners and one DVD burner on my computer. In Windows, I can easily make 18 CDs in minutes using all three recorders using Nero. Is there a program that allows me to burn using multiple recorders in Linux? I couldn't find the option in k3b or GnomeBaker.

Try to run a few copies of some burning program. If it fails, do it directly with cdrecord (it is common back-end for most of them anyway). man cdrecord is rather good (practice on RW until you master options), dev= is needed to specify ide_cd device - or choose from your 3 burners..

You can get multiple instances of k3b (or other kde programs) to run by starting them with the --nofork option. That should allow you to do multiple burns at once, but I haven't actually tried it myself.

If you're only talking about making multiple copies of the same disk at once though, you might check out cdcontrol. It's a lightweight app designed specifically for parallel burning.

Ah, so the actual thing I'm talking about is "parallel burning". Helps to know the terminology . I will give those suggestions a try. Thanks!
