See the man pages for cdrecord, the command-line utility.

man cdrecord or search on Google for a cdrecord tutorial. FWIW, many of the GUI CD burners are just front-ends to cdrecord.

cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,0,0 path to file

Make your image file, if necessary, which I'll call "my_image.img" by running this command


mkisofs -r -o my_image.img /home/user/whatever
Burn it to CD by running this command:


cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=0,0,0 -data my_image.img
As in mysterio's example as well, you would want to adjust the speed parameter to fit your hardware. Good luck with it. -- J.W.
