Verifying integrity of a CD/DVD burned from a ISO


A new la entry has been added:

Verifying integrity of a CD/DVD burned from a ISO

Quote:
This tutorial is about how to verify the integrity of a DV/DVD burned from a ISO. Some CD/DVD burning applications add extra data when burning to the CD/DVD. So, a direct MD5 of the media may give you a misleading result.

Why not just use 'cmp' instead ? One command, much simpler.

cmp will not work because the sizes of the iso file and /dev/dvd are different. cmp will always fail

If it says EOF on the iso, then you know the burn is good.
