Copy to CD


I would like to copy some important files to CD.
I have been messing about all day with cdrecord, cdrdao, readcd, dd.
But what I want is just to copy, say, myfile.txt to an open cd, leave it open, so that I can put more on it.
I can copy CDs with cdrdao, but that program needs a .toc file to lead it. How do I just copy a file to a blank CD?
Any ideas?
Thanks

Well, you would need to make a isofs using mkisofs. Then use cdrecord to burn it with the multi option.

it sounds like you're looking for UDF packet writing capabilities of something like DirectCD in Windows. Well, unfortunately, that's something that is still being developed for linux.

Like wr3ck3d said, you'll have to make an iso of the file(s) you want to burn, and then use cdrecord and burn a multi-session disc.
