Question How to burn DVD iso using cdrecord

I downloaded an iso of a dvd from the FC5 Test2 site. I would like to burn it to a dvd using cdrecord from the command line (cdrecord version Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (i686-pc-linux-gnu)). If I can't do that, what other options are available?

I think that K3b is what you have to get.

CDRecord doesn't support DVD burning. You need 'growisofs'. There is the command I use:
growisofs -use-the-force-luke=dao -dvd-compat -J -R -l -f -Z /dev/burner -speed=16 /path/to/burn
Make sure you change "/dev/burner" to your burner location.

yes it does

Q. What is cdrecord, what is cdrtools?
A. Cdrecord is a free recording program for CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray disks. Cdrtools is a suite of programs bundled together and containing, amongst others, cdrecord. Cdrecord started as a single program in February 1996 (written from scratch after a Solaris port from the Linux program cdwrite has been thrown away). Short time later, a cooperation started with other related programs (mkisofs and cdda2wav). These programs then have been bundled with cdrecord and finally in 2001, the compilation archive has been renamed to cdrtools.

cdrecord does burn dvd's, this is the commandline I use to burn iso images to dvd:

/usr/bin/cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=1001,0,0 /path/to/iso
you may need root permission to use the cdrecord program. you may also need to change the dev='1001',0,0 to match your burner (as root, do 'cdrecord -scanbus')

man cdrecord

You can do it with cdrecord as stated above but I prefer growisofs:

growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=4 -use-the-force-luke=bufsize:32m -Z /dev/dvdrw=/home/bob/slackware.iso
Where speed is whatever speed you want, just make sure it's not too fast.
