I got a new DVD-Cd player


Hi everyone.

I got a new DVD/CR, a Sony DRU-510A. So I start up Xcdroast (latest version) and it recognizes it, but it says I must install ProDVD, which I come to find out is the DVD version of cdrecord. I get it downloaded, rename my old cdrecord, and copy the ProDVD version of cdrecord. I do a -version and I got the right version. I found what to do on Google. Only one little problem. I the post, near the end, I get a little "Now all you have to do is alter the /etc/cdrecord.conf file". Nice little dinger, because it doesn't tell you what to put in there. I kept looking in Google, but it doesn't tell you what to put in there. Any help would be more than appreciated. Thanks.

man cdrecord will give you a terse explanation of /etc/default/cdrecord which is what the file is called on SuSE.

Hi Jailbait

I am running RedHat 9 and the file I am looking to work on is /etc/cdrecord.conf file. So I am not sure what to do with what the Man page says.

" I am not sure what to do with what the Man page says. "

One thing that you could do is set up the parameters for two different devices, your DVD and your CR. For example you could say that your DVD and CDR are on the same address but run at different speeds with the following entries in /etc/cdrecord.conf:

mydvd 0,0,0 4
mycdr 0,0,0 52

Then you could use the following commands (partial commands) to run your DVD and CDR:

cdrecord dev=mycdr

cdrecord dev=mydvd

Or you could just ignore /etc/cdrecord.conf and include all of the info on the command line each time you type it in.
