I was doing CD writing in windows using Nero. Since the buffer used was
fluctuating wildly during writing (though it did not affect the quality on
the copied CD), I thought I will switch to Linux for CD writing.
Output of cdrecord -scanbus was 0,0,0.
I use ASUS 2410 A (24X 10X 40X) CD writer.
I used koncd to do CD writing. Usually I create a directory, copy the master
CD contents in it, and use "Data CD" option of koncd, indicate the newly
created Source directory and complete the CD Writing without
any problem. But if I want to do CD to CD copying , koncd will start, but
will eject the CD with error message 255.
I thought I will do CD writing using commandline using cdrecord. I read the
CD writing howto which said for CD to CD copying give the following command
"cdrecord -v dev=0,6,0 speed=2 -isosize /dev/scd0"
My CD ROM drive is /dev/hdd, cdwriter is /dev/hdc (/dev/cdrom, /dev/cdrom1).
I put master CD in CDROM drive, blank CD in my CD Writer.
Since my cdrecord -scanbus output was dev=0,0,0
I gave the following command
"cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 speed=8 -isosize /dev/cdrom"
in pure CLI mode (no X). writing began and it wrote 576 KB of data and
trashed the CD.
Tried it again . Same result.
What mistake am I committing?
