C8000 Writing to DVD

On a C8000 (HP-UX 11.11), is it possible to use the mkisofs and cdrecord commands to write to a DVD? I can't even get cdrecord -scanbus to 'see' the DVD drive.

Which cdrecord? What is "the DVD drive",
connected how, and can other software "'see'"
it?

Support for (free) DVD writing is relatively
new in cdrtools/cdrecord. You might wish to
try the latest source kit from the usual
place:

ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha/

cdrtools-2.01.01a59 seems to be the latest
one at the moment, more or less.

Hi

it should be possible to use the Hp s/w in the link provided, however it does has limitations?

it needs to be a proper hp supported drive and connected via ide, not a usb drive

Hi,

well, to see DVD you just need 'ioscan -fnC disk'. As said above, the drive should be supported by HP.
