Are ther ports for cdrecord/growisofs for the Windows environment?

I have a friend that runs Win2k Pro and a variety of CD/DVD recording software (Nero, Roxio, etc). Most of the time it works OK, but occasionally he runs into media that can't be copied reliably by his setup. He brings those disks over to me to copy in my Linux environment.

He really likes how reliable cdrecord and growisofs are, but doesn't want to switch to Linux. Are ther ports for cdrecord/growisofs for the Windows environment?

Shalom,

cdrecord is open source and ships with Linux. There is no reason why you can't try and compile it on Windows.

Hey,

I don't know about growisofs, but I use cdrfe (CD Record Front End) on my Windows XP box at work. It is a windows front end for cdrecord.
