Cd/dvd burning software


what is the best software for burning cds? right now i have k3b installed and that is giving me some problems. If i go to the 'setup devices' section of the preferences it says that my samsung cdrw/dvd sm-352b is a reader but there is nothing listed as a writing device. I only have one cdrom since i have a shuttle computer (i have a usb dvd burner that isnt set up yet) but it should still be able to burn ISOs and the like. i thought maybe it was read/write permission problems. This is what my fstab entry for the cdrom looks like...

Code:
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              auto    user,noauto     0 0
this is what happens when i try to mount the cdrom drive...

Code:
[root@c002600 root]# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
[root@c002600 root]#
so is that why? how can i mount the cdrom so its not read-only?

You don't need to mount anything to start burning - in fact, I think it's counterproductive to try. As for burning software, I use mkisofs to create an image, and growisofs to send it to the burner (command line).

You should try k3b, This a good front-end for mkisofs, growisofs, cdrecords etc...

Hee hee he said he was using k3b already...

Sorry, no idea about GUI tools, I don't really use them, but the command line is not too hard to use, unless you're collecting small numbers of files from all over the place. To create an ISO image from the 'files' directory (assuming they will fit on a CD), just use "mkisofs -o my.iso files". If you're burning a dvdauthor directory, add "-dvd-video". Use "growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=my.iso" to burn it (add -dvd-compat for those dvdauthor movies).

maybe you can try this:
Code:
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=udf:iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
see if maybe that gets you anywhere.....
