i have one more question with growisofs command line burning tool
so i could burn the some.iso iso9660 image to dvd ±rw media but i could not cd
i offten burn dvd with this command
growisofs -Z /dev/sr0=some.iso
but when i put in dvd writer cdrw media it returnes with
> growisofs -Z /dev/sr0=some.iso
/dev/sr0: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: 0
/dev/sr0: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: A
is in growisofs program something special to burn cdr(w) images
DVD rewritable and CD rewritable media differ in characteristics. For one thing you will notice that DVD±RW is purple while CD-RW is pale gold/silver (partly depends on the backing colour). Different dyes. CD-RW has to be blanked first, DVD±RW doesn’t; you can just overwrite the existing data. A format of a DVD±RW is possible but normally not needed or recommended.
So for blanking/writing CD-RW the CLI program to use is wodim, not growisofs.
If you were using k3b or brasero these details would have been taken care of for you.
one more time thank you for your reply…
cdrw is seems to be blanked… when I put it in dvdrw drive, nautilus window appears with burn:///
ok, I blank one more with wodim blank=all command
it now blanks…

:-( /dev/sr0: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: A
the problem is here and same… I have no idea to solve the problem…
Most of the time you don’t need blank=all, blank=fast will do. Only when the calibration area is used up do you need to clear it with blank=all. Again this is something k3b takes care of for you.
You need to use wodim to do both the blanking and the writing. Don’t use growisofs for CDs.
i want to add some more
i hope this helps somebody
this burn my CD from image myisoimage.iso
it simple when you know
