How can I use a Removable Device in CentOS?

I knew how to mount it and I was able to view files and folder in it but I don't know how to copy files using CUI (Command not GUI) mode. I have six separate iso files and I want to make a DVD in the removable device. Thanks all.

If you can mount then you can you can umount as well. Copy the file using cp command to where you want and then just unmount the mount point.
For eg:
if your external device was /dev/sdb1 and you mounted it on /mnt/ext

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ext then to remove it use
umount /mnt/ext.
