Ever wondered if there’s a quick and easy way to write an iso file to a CD-R/DVD-R ? Don’t want to open K3B or Brasero ? Here’s a handy way of writing the iso file.
First, switch to root using su
You’ll get something like this:
0,0,0 0) 'TSSTcorp' 'DVD+-RW TS-L632H' 'D200' Removable CD-ROM<br />
0,1,0 1) *
Note the first 3 numbers corresponding to your CD/DVD writer.
cdrecord -v dev=x,y,z <name-of-iso-file>
replacing x,y,z with the numbers obtained in the above line and the name of iso file as well! Simple!
To make it even simpler, you can wrap the command around a shell script accepting the filename as the input for even faster access. CLI FTW!
