Re: What do do when neither cdrecord/burncd work for me anymore?

Hi Matt,
I lost my usb stick ages ago, so I dont have one. However. My theory is that cdrecord just plain sucks, that compatibility with dragonfly was broken. So, I tried cdrdao; while totally useless for me since I dont believe it can burn .iso images, at least it CAN blank the CD-RW disk im using. cdrdao and cdrecord both use SCSI emulation. Would maybe a ktrace be of any use to anyone?

With burncd, i believe its just broken :P Does FreeBSD6 have a new version or something to try?

    Oh wait.  That might not work... cause you would have to remove the
    live CD to test burning a new one :-(

Hmm. Well, the issue here is still to somehow be able to test an
older system to see if it was something we did or whether it is something else.

    Do you have any USB memory sticks ?  You might be able to copy a bootable
    system from an older live CD to a USB memory stick and boot from the
    memory stick, and that would free up the CD Rom drive to be able to test
