Re: Oddness piping mkisofs into recent cdrecord versions

I've had the same problem and if you use tsize=`mkisofs -print-size -quiet file.iso`s as one of the flags then it should work.. Make note that the 's' after the tsize cmd is correct, check the man page for this flag..

eg: mkisofs file.iso | cdrecord -data tsize=`mkisofs -print-size -quiet file.iso`s -

The issue is that the mkisofs is running on another machine over a network. I want to burn a CD, and it is really not desirable to jump through hoops to do so, nor to try and get the tsize= through reliably. A drawback to the recording modes or ISO filesystem characteristics. As noted an oddity rather than a bug.

    cdrecord writes in session at one mode, growifofs writes in packet
