Burning CD / DVD s on Solaris

I initially had a tough time burning CDs / DVDs on Solaris - Not anymore!

Just in case the Lauch->Places->CD/DVD Writer doesnt work good for you, here is what you can do!

Steps :

1> Place all your files / folders to be written in a directory say '/export/home/user/myNewDisc'

2> Make an ISO image out of it using the following command. Let say the iso image name is myImage

[gKrish]#mkisofs -J -R -o /export/home/user/myImage.iso /export/home/user/myNewDisc

3> Optional: You can test if the image created can be properly mounted.

[gKrish]# lofiadm -a /export/home/user/myImage.iso
/dev/lofi/1
[gKrish]# mount -F hsfs /dev/lofi/1 /mnt
[gKrish]# cd /mnt

4> Burn the CD / DVD

[gKrish]# cdrw -i /export/home/user/myImage.iso
Looking for CD devices...
Initializing device...done.
Preparing to write DVD
Writing track 1...done.
Finalizing (Can take several minutes)...done.

Voila!

Thanks, dude, this makes it easier, I was using standard unix command line cd burning commands before. :]

I only used the burning part of this tutorial, but it worked perfectly. Thanks for the write up!
