Burning Multi session CD ,removing previous content


I use cd record to burn . Distro is redhat 9.

I use -multi option the previous content in CD remains there

In Nero Cdburn [Windows ] i could easily remove the previous content [ the toc i mean] .

How to do it in cdrecord

Commands I used

cdrecord -msinfo -dev=0,0,0 [for finding out end of track]

mkisofs -R -J -v -o filename.iso -C number_i_got_from_above Path/


cdrecord speed=8 fs=20 dev=0,0,0 -multi -eject filename.iso


Any suggestions would be helpful

Cheers
Z

Sorry the last post was not so clear.

Previous content means what files were originally on CD prior to burning

say if i have 5 files on a cd and i use multi option to write 7 more files
I dont want the earlier 5 files to be there.

It is done by "remove files from compilation" option in Nero

Cheers

First, I assume you actually are referring to CD-RW media, not CD-R media. In terms of blanking out a previously recorded CD, check out the man pages for cdrecord, or just run the following to get a list of all the options
Code:
cdrecord blank=help
Hopefully that should do it. Good luck with it -- J.W.

No I meant a CD-R CD not a CD-RW.

I`ll make it clear.
I have to write more than once in a CD-R [ multi session I mean]
I fill first 100 MB with some files and leave the CD session open.

Then I want to write some more files in the free space [remaing 500 MB or so].
But now I dont want the 100 MB files to get included in this session.
The files should not get displayed when I use the CD later

This is possible in windows [Nero Burning Rom] , but I want a way out in linux as I was not always a windows fan.

Cheers
Z
