Which tool do you recommend for burning/authoring dvds?

*growisofs* (dvd)  *cdrecord* (cdrom);  both from the commandline.


Maybe you could offer some advice. I'm trying to burn an iso image, but
I need the "+" & "-" options to get a good DVD.

I didn't see any switch in the reading.


...if i get your question right (with a risk i tell you things you know already)

under sarge:

install as root *dvd+rw-tools*    aptitude install etc. etc
then do as $  man growisofs and this help_file really helps you further.

install as well *cdrecord*
i do not know which kernel you are using. if you use a 4.4.x kernel:

do as root *cdrecord -scanbus* to get the *scsi-codes* of your burning device(s).
look further at the *man cdrecord* file.
if you use a 2.6.x kernel *just* do (if you start burning) cdrecord /dev/hdx/ -data/-audio and the rest.

to get some exercise   use the -dummy option to get the hunch of it.

hope this is of some help.

good luck,
