I took a look at cdrecord, and looked at the man page, but I am not sure if I understand how to
use it -- can I use it to create a backup of my file(s)? My DVD rewriter is a USB device, and not
a SCSI device, and I am not sure what the device number and LUN etc. are for it (I only know
that /dev/sr1 and /dev/scd1 both map to it). Should I do something like:
mkisofs -R /master/tree | cdrecord speed=2 dev=2,0
from the man page's example, where /master/tree is the directory I want to write out, but what
should be the arguments for dev= ?
Thanks again for your help!
P.S. I hope my earlier message reached you, I still don't see it on the cdwrite mailing list...
