Read/Write to DirectCD formatted CDRW?


Just switched to MDK from Win, one bit of functionality I haven't found a replacement for yet is DirectCD. How do I treat a CDRW like another hard drive in Linux?

good question, and i don't have the answer. BUT, i can tell you how much data i have lost doing exactly what you are doing. it seems that cd-rw's are extremely unstable (i've used every brand out there with several different burners). besides, given how cheap and stable a cdr is, why not just use a cdr then pitch them when they are out dated?

a quick google search with the terms "DirectCD; linux" yielded this link... this is exactly what you are wanting.
