cdrecord question...

hi all,

just want to ask if anyone knows or have done this before.

i issue this command to blank my CD/RW
cdrecord -V blank=fast dev=0,0,0 -force

- the command is actually fine, what's happening is that, the CD will be ejected and ask me to reload the CD then press ENTER to proceed.

does anyone have an idea on how to prevent the CD to be ejected?
- after running the command, it will just blank the CD w/out ejecting and prompting me to press ENTER.

cdrecord -V dev=0,0,0 -data /dir/some.img works fine when i'm writing from image to CD.

any suggestion is much appreciated.

rgds,
Bong

Re: cdrecord question...

The -eject command seems to say it will eject the cd after writing.

This may be worth a test.

Re: cdrecord question...

I know on my Windows box at home, whever I write a CD or DVD it needs to eject/re-insert after a burn for it to correctly read properly.

That being said, I am unaware of any argument to cdrecord to get it to re-insert the drawer.

Sorry.. Not helpful..

Hi Steven & Stuart
Thank you for ur time reading my inquiry. I already give up testing, so i just accepted what the cdrecord required(re-insert). hehehe

anyway you both still earn points.

Re: cdrecord question...

After blanking the CD, the drive's knowledge about the CD must be reset. For some CD drives, there is no other reliable way to do this but to eject the CD.
