Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

# CD burning copying ripping info
Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:
cdrecord -scanbus Adding an IDE CD-Writer to Linux CD Writing HOWTO Burning CDs on Linux
# Burn an ISO to disk
cdrecord -v speed=<burning speed> dev=<your device> /path/to/foo.iso
# Burn from disk to disk
cdrecord -v dev=<your device> speed=<burning speed> -isosize /dev/cdrom
isoinfo -i -d /dev/cdrom
# Generate an ISO from a directory.
mkisofs -vrTJUV "Label" -o foo.iso /path/to/directory
# Generate an ISO from a CD

# Convert mp3 to wav with lame
for i in *.mp3; do lame --decode $i `basename $i .mp3`.wav; done
# Burn a CD from wav files
cdrecord -v -audio -pad speed=<burning speed> dev=<your device> /path/to/*.wav
# Erase a CDRW
cdrecord -v dev=<your device> speed=<burning speed> blank=fast
Your iso is probably not right
If your device is dev=1,0,0
then do in a terminal [me@mycomputer adirectory]$
mkisofs -v -r -o session1 /path/to/afile
Then you find a file session1 in adirectory
Burn this to a new cd in the same terminal with
cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=1,0,0 -eject -multi -data session1
The cd remains open
You can copy more files to it.
To copy a second file to it do
cdrecord -msinfo dev=1,0,0
This gives two numbers back.
mkisofs -v -r -o session2 -C firstnumber,secondnumber -M /dev/scd0 /path/to /afile
Then you have session2.
Copy this to cd with
cdrecord -v dev=1,0,0 -eject -multi -data session2
I find the frontends won't work.
You will have to umount your device for cdrecord to work.
When you're finished, you can delete session 1 2 ...whatever.
I wrestled with this for hours, it works fine here for me now, thanks to help from all the Linuxers out there.
