goofed with xcdrecord


OK - went to make a duplicate of a data cd(non-bootable windows software) w/ xcdrecord, all went well in simulation and the burn - I put the disk in a windows machine and looked at it thru windows explorer all folders showed up as they were supposed to, you can even open them and look around but windows gives an error to the effect of "these files are not compatible with this system" if you try to run the executable.

So...........before I burn anymore coasters I was just wondering if anyone had experienced such a thing before. I realize that there are a multitude of settings to tweak, Ive been reading the man pages on cdrecord and mkiosfs but I had hoped that the gui would make it easier to get started. I haven't tried an audio cd copy or making and burning a track list yet. Thanks for any insight.

XCDRoast is very user-friendly.... but I've never tried using anything I've burned on m$, so not sure if it will help that.

Actually I tried to make a copy of an original data disk (only for backup purposes of course ) I read everything I could find at the site - I'll try some more things out this weekend and see what happens.

Ultimately I'd like to learn to use cdrecord without the gui but my learning agenda appears to be full for the next few years. I just used it because it came with the distro and it was the first gui I could get to work at all.

Any reccomendations on a frontend for the lame encoder?
