Burning CDs from the Command Line

There has also been a change in the tools used for burning CDs. In recent versions of SUSE, the cdrecord tool has been replaced by wodim.

To burn disks from the command line, use cdrecord or wodim. The command line you need will resemble the following:

[email protected] : ~ # wodim -v -dev=/dev/sr0 speed=16 -dao -data filename.iso

Here we are burning the image filename.iso to CD. The CD burner device is /dev/sr0 (or could be any of /dev/cdrom, /dev/cdrw, /dev/dvd, /dev/dvdrw, or /dev/scd0, all of which are symbolic links to /dev/sr0 on my system because during installation the system detected the capabilities of the CD device), and we are burning the image in "disk at once'' mode (-dao) to produce a data CD (-data). The speed has been specified as 16.
