Re: dvd multi-session
i am now able to write in multiple sessions. i had to do a blank=all
using cdrecord-prodvd to do it. but it looks like both sessions need to
be an isofs.
now i am trying to write multiple tar archives to the dvd media as multi
session and it is failing.
my first command:
# tar cvf - /tmp | growisofs -Z /dev/scd0=/dev/fd/0
works great, exactly what i hoped for. i am able to get the data back
from the media using:
# readcd dev=0,0,0 f=tarpipe | tar -tvf tarpipe
my second command and its output:
# tar cvf - /opt | growisofs -M /dev/scd0=/dev/fd/0
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
:-( /dev/scd0 doesn't look like isofs...
does this imply that there has to be an isofs on the disc to append to
it? growisofs did not seem to care that the first image i wrote was not
