cdrecord


Hi,

I'm trying to burn CD-RW's using cdrecord and need some help. All I'm trying to do is back up some files.

I want to burn some files or directories to the disk and then be able to use the disk again on another day to back up the files again.

Does anyone know how I can use to use cdrecord to initially record to the disk? and then re-write to the disk (over writing what is there)

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

See the cdrecord manual page, section for "blank=".

Exactly what was the command line that you used? Exactly what was the output that you saw? Exactly to what extent does your system hang?
