Burning DVD using multiple DVD writers


Hi, just wondering if there's any linux app that would make me burn the same DVD using 3 DVD writers at the same time.
We often have a need to burn a lot of DVD (that we produce) in few minutes and I was wondering if we could "make" a burning system linux based (we have 3 dvd burners). I am using K3b at the moment but see no option for burning dvds using more that 1 dvdwriter at the same time.

Thanks for your suggestions

Simone

PS if there's a command line option is welcome

Yes I could (didn't try to see if it works) and it was actually an option. I am not the only one using the box by the way, and the other people, which includes my boss, is not really linux friendly.
Even if they would, don't u think it would be a nice feature to have?
I think I could also write a script to do the same job, but if there's anything out there ready to do what I need it would be nice.

Thanks, have a nice day

desmo,

Old thread, and maybe you've learned better by now. If so, post
back and teach us.

If your system as the "hutzpah" there's no reason not to do so.
I only have 2 DVD burners, but do that frequently. Get free of
that K3B GUI frontend, and do it from CLI with "growisofs"
Code:
su -c "growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hda=Jesus.iso"
in one term and
Code:
su -c "growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hdc=Jesus.iso"
in another term gets me two at a time. You just need 3 terms.

And yes, you could easily write a script to do it. I guess, but
I don't know much about scripting.

Basic Script and python front end

Hi, I actually wrote a small script and then a python graphical front end to burn 2 dvd video from folders VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS, but it would be easy to change it to burn iso's . If you are interested I can send it to you.

Cheers
Simone
