CD-Writing utilities (BLFS chapter 40) + dvd+rw-tools (current version
220.127.116.11.8) is probably all what you need to burn DVD's if you are not
bored using command line instructions. Works fine for me with DVD+R[W] on
See http://fy.chalmers.se/~appro/linux/DVD+RW/ for an introduction.
Since kernel 2.6 cdrom drives are recognized as IDE devices (/dev/hdx); it
is no longer necessary to emulate SCSI interface for them.
Since kernel 2.6.10, packet writing is supported by the kernel; it is no
longer necessary to patch it to implement packet writing (for udftools; see
BLFS book chapter 40).
There is an issue with the default configuration for packet writing :
udev sets /dev/pktcdvd as a character device (10,63), but pktsetup seems to
expect pktcdvd to be a directory
and creates the character device 10,63 named "control";
proposed workaround :
cat > /etc/udev/rules.d/20-pktcdvd.rules << "EOF"
# /etc/udev/rules.d/20-pktcdvd.rules: Rule for pktcdvd setup
# Packet writing device should go into /dev/pktcdvd
KERNEL="pktcdvd", NAME="pktcdvd/control", GROUP="disk", MODE="0644"
