Fastest way to burn iso image to a CD


I'm looking to find the fastest way to burn an ISO image to a CD. I've looked through the man pages for cdrecord, but it's all confusing to me. Is there one command I can execute to just burn the damn thing?

I am assuming you want to create a data CD:
Code:
mkisofs -r -o cd_image directory1 directory2 ...
Code:
cdrecord --scanbus
this gives the location of your CD Burner, mine is 0,0,0. Only needs to be run once to find where your cd burner is located
then:
Code:
cdrecord -v speed=32 dev=0,0,0 -data cd_image
where speed=32 is the burning speed of your burner

You could try placing the commands into a shell script, and run it from a single program.

I hope this helps

That definitely wins for fastest way to burn an image.

For a newbie friendly app with an interface similar in a lot of ways to Nero,
grab K3B. It is by far the most polished burning app I've used on linux.

I've been using version 0.11.1 for a few weeks now and you can burn an .iso image by going to tools -->CD-->Burn CD Image. It is as easy as pointing to the right .iso file and then telling the burner what speed to use.

www.k3b.org is the site.

Okey, one problem. When I issue a 'cdrecord --scanbus' command, I get this:
Code:
root@NICK:/# cdrecord --scanbus
Cdrecord 2.00.3 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J�rg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
root@NICK:/#
I don't have an entry for my cd burner in my fstab file. In fact, I don't know what the device is even called. I have 2 CD drives, and the burner is the second one, plugged into 'slave'. Here is my fstab:

Code:
/dev/hdb1        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda2        /                reiserfs    defaults         1   1
/dev/hda1        /boot            ext2        defaults         1   2
/dev/hdb2        /home            reiserfs    defaults         1   2
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0

Hello

You might consider xcdroast, even if it only were for the faq
http://www.xcdroast.org/xcdr098/faq-a15.html
which also explaines how to make a writer work.

Bye

I had a problem with using my DVD drive as the slave - wasn't recognised at all...

Seems ok now that its the master.

You might also want to try "modprobe ide-scsi" if ide-scsi support isn't built into the kernel and you are using an IDE DVD drive.

if you are using kernel 2.6 and the cdrw is IDE you can try:

cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI:

my cd-drive is mounted as

/dev/cdroms/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,ro,user 0 0

in /etc/fstab

btw "modprobe ide-scsi" does not change anything

thanks

Do you have "hdc=ide-scsi" in your lilo.conf? I believe the slave side of the second ide is gonna be "HDD" instead of "HDC".
