NAME

burncd -- control the ATAPI CD-R/RW driver

SYNOPSIS

burncd [-delmnpqtv] [-f device] [-s speed] [command] [command file ...]

DESCRIPTION

The burncd utility is used to burn CD-R/RW media using the ATAPI cd driver. Available options and operands: -d burn the CD-R/RW in DAO (disk at once) mode. -e eject the media when done. -f device set the device to use for the burning process. -l read a list of image files from filename. -m close disk in multisession mode (otherwise disk is closed as singlesession). -n do not write gaps between data tracks in DAO mode. -p use preemphasis on audio tracks. -q quiet, do not print progress messages. -s speed set the speed of the burner device. Defaults to 1. Spec- ify ``max'' to use the drive's fastest speed. -t test write, do not actually write on the media. -v verbose, print extra progress messages. command may be one of: msinfo Show the first LBA of the last track on the media and the next writeable address on the media for use with the mkisofs(8)'s -C switch when adding additional data to ISO file systems with extra sessions. blank Blank a CD-RW medium. This uses the fast blanking method, so data are not physically overwritten, only those areas that make the media appear blank for further usage are erased. erase Erase a CD-RW medium. This erases the entire media. Can take up to 1 hour to finish. fixate Fixate the medium so that the TOC is generated and the media can be used in an ordinary CD drive. The driver defaults to creating singlesession media (see -m option). Should be the last command to burncd as the program exits when this has been done. Ignored in DAO mode (see -d option). raw | audio Set the write mode to produce audio (raw mode) tracks for the following images on the command line. data | mode1 Set the write mode to produce data (mode1) tracks for the following image files on the command line. mode2 Set the write mode to produce data (mode2) tracks for the following image files on the command line. XAmode1 Set the write mode to produce data (XAmode1) tracks for the following image files on the command line. XAmode2 Set the write mode to produce data (XAmode2) tracks for the following image files on the command line. vcd Set the write mode to produce VCD/SVCD tracks for the fol- lowing image files on the command line. This automatically sets DAO (-d) and ``no gaps'' (-n) modes. file All other arguments are treated as filenames of images to write to the media, or in case the -l option is used as files containing lists of images. Files whose length are not a multiple of the current media blocksize are quietly zero padded to fit the blocksize requirement. The conventional filename - refers to stdin, and can only be used once.

EXAMPLES

The typical usage for burning a data CD-R: burncd -f /dev/acd0c data file1 fixate The typical usage for burning an audio CD-R: burncd -f /dev/acd0c audio file1 file2 file3 fixate The typical usage for burning an audio CD-R in DAO mode: burncd -f /dev/acd0c -d audio file1 file2 file3 The typical usage for burning a mixed mode CD-R: burncd -f /dev/acd0c data file1 audio file2 file3 fixate The typical usage for burning from a compressed image file on stdin: gunzip -c file.iso.gz | burncd -f /dev/acd0c data - fixate In the examples above, the files burned to data CD-Rs are assumed to be ISO9660 file systems. mkisofs(8), available in the dports(7) collection, is commonly used to create ISO9660 file system images from a given direc- tory tree.
