Thread: Burning Software

    Burning Software

    Im trying to burn the RH 8.0 iso images onto CD using Gnome Toaster. I tried it out and thought i did it right, but when i went to test the cd media i couldnt even mount it! When i restarted to see if it would boot off the cd it didnt. I obviosuly didnt. Something i dont understand is, i didnt mount the Blank CD before i tried writing to it, and it still seemed to write. Now mounting a blank Cd seems silly, because there's no media to mount! Am i right about this? Maybe i should use other burning software, does anyone know of something better. Please advise me on burning cd's, the in & outs.

    Thanks!

    Not to worry! After giving up with Gnome Toaster, i tried using X-Roast, that also gave me hassles, so i finally used the cdrecord from the shell. Wow, easy, quick, and does the job, after burning the CD in notime, i tested it, and so did RH 8.0 media check, all went fine.

    Long Live Shell!

    Ow yeah, a nice help page was found at www.redhat.com

    I agree, cli seems to be easiest for iso's, but for music and data cd's (but not copying CD's) I would reccommend K3b.

    I use k3b for almost everything, well I used to, but now I just make and iso and burn that using cdrecord. Its so much easier than pissing around in a gui.

    Well, what's easier surely depends on what you want to burn. Try mkisofs'ing a horde of files from different directories while excluding others in these directories. That's a real pain on the CLI. Just dragin' and droppin' them in a GUI is way quicker. And while you're at it why not hit the burn button?

    True, but I usually just copy everything I want into a folder and then make that, I know it takes longer but I usually don't miss anything that way. Each to their own.
