BCCD:Burning a CD

From Earlham CS Department
Jump to: navigation, search

m1.cluster.earlham.edu, a G4 tower in the BCCD cluster, is our CD burner. The m1 console is (or should be) the rightmost of the two monitors on the BCCD table. The stack of CD-RW media on top of m1 also belongs to the BCCD project.

To burn a CD, login to m1 as root and locate a copy of the ISO you want to burn. Execute the command:

cdrecord -tao bccd-*.iso

All the details are taken care of in /etc/cdrecord/cdrecord. These settings are fairly static and shouldn't need to be tweaked.

To erase a CD, run the command:

cdrecord blank=fast

Or, if that doesn't work:

cdrecord blank=all
