Which program to use for CD writer?


Hi,
I'm have a RH Linux 8 with a TDK CD writer installed.
Which program can I use to write data to a blank CD using the CD writer?
Do I have to download and install a new one or there is already one included in RH Linux 8.

Xcdroast is included in RedHat 8.0 but I think it's broken. If you want to use it head over to their homepage and download the latest version. Google will find it.

I like it but others don't. Try it for yourself.

Might try kb3, does data and audio. Don't know if it's included, however.

err, unless what you meant was smaller, in which case you can go command line with cdrecord -data ....

Here is simple.

For data:

bash2.05$ mkisofs -r -o "image to burn" "files to burn directory/"
bash2.05$ cdrecord -scanbus
bash2.05$ cdrecord -v speed="X" dev="output from scanbus" -data "image to burn"

For audio: (TAO)

bash2.05$ cdrecord -v speed="X" dev="output from scanbus" -audio track1.wav track2.wav ....

I think that's as simple as I can get...
