About CD burning - closing session

Hi folks,


I have a CD burned on GUI without "close/finalize" session option checked. Therefore it can't be read.

I'm prepared running "cdrecord" to "close/finalize" the session and am uncertain which flag should be up. I read "info cdrecord" and "man cdrecord" anc could not resolve it. Please help. TIA

Hi satinet,

Tks for your response.

which cd recording GUI is it? K3B? gnomebaker??
CDBurnerXP Pro 3

running on WinXP on another box.

I can't fix it there. So I imaged whether "Cdrecord" on this box can assist me.

I tried;

# cdrecord dev=ATA:1,0,0 -fix
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01.01a03-dvd (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2005 Jörg Schilling
Vendor_info    : 'SONY    '
Identifikation : 'DVD RW DRU-820A '
Revision       : '1.0a'
Device seems to be: Generic mmc2 DVD-R/DVD-RW.
Using generic SCSI-3/mmc   CD-R/CD-RW driver (mmc_cdr).
Supported modes: TAO PACKET SAO SAO/R96P SAO/R96R RAW/R16 RAW/R96P RAW/R96R
Speed set to 7056 KB/s
Starting to write CD/DVD at speed  40.0 in real TAO mode for single session.
Last chance to quit, starting real write    0 seconds. Operation starts.
Turning BURN-Free off
It worked without complaint. Still impossible to mount CD.

# cdrecord -scanbus

I would suggest just reburning the CD from scratch and properly closing the disc at burn time, rather than playing around trying to rescue a piece of media that's only worth maybe 5 cents.

Hi farslayer,

I agree with your view. My aim is not to rescue the CD but to accumulate my knowledge on CD burning and partially due to curiosity.
