How do i use cdrw to copy a download?


All I need to do is copy downloaded Nvidia video card driver to cd, then open it on my other computer and copy frm cd to desktop using CLI... I don't hav gui tools.

Here are my:

CDrom/ CDwriter settings:

bash-3.1# ls -al /dev|grep hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdr -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdr1 -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdrom1 -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdrw -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdrw1 -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdwriter -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdwriter1 -> hdc
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 22, 0 2009-10-12 17:02 hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 writer -> hdc
bash-3.1# ls -al /dev |grep hda
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdrom -> hda
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-12 17:02 cdrom0 -> hda
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 3, 0 2009-10-12 17:02 hda
bash-3.1# /mnt/cdr
bash: /mnt/cdr: No such file or directory
bash-3.1# /mnt/cdwriter

You need to use mkisofs to create a .iso file, then use cdrecord to burn the iso to a disk.

Example:
Code:
mkisofs -J /path/to/be/root/of/ISO -o isofile.iso
cdrecord -dev=0,0,1 isofile.iso
Be sure to use 'cdrecord -scanbus' first and make sure that you use the correct parameters to point at your CDR.
