CDrecorder Gtoaster

Gtoaster finds my Sony CRX 160E, (cdrecord -scanbus) but it hangs when I try and copy a file to it.
I 'm looking for something like Adaptec is under (no offence) Windows, so I can just use the CD writer to store copies of important files.
Can anyone suggest an alternative to Gtoaster?

Or do I have to do something like format CD before I can use a raw cd?

Adaptec uses the udf filesystem, not the iso type. That means "packet writing". As far as I know, there are no similar pieces of software for Linux, partly because it's quite a risky business writing like that. Of course, there may be apps that provide packet writing, but I don't know of any Linux ones.

Edit - a google linux search threw this up, but it looks like you need to patch your kernel.
