burn an iso image from terminal


Now you can burn an ISO image directly from your terminal, no need for any GUI tool.

The utility is called wodim, its derived from the tool cdrecord. To check for devices, on you system, simply type,

wodim --devices

This will show an output some thing similar to this,

wodim: Overview of accessible drives (1 found) :
0  dev='/dev/sr0'    rwrw-- : 'TEAC' 'DV-W28S-WT'

this shows that you are having an optical recorder at /dev/sr0.



wodim -v -sao dev= driveropts=burnfree </path/to/iso/image-file>


wodim -v -sao dev=/dev/sr0 driveropts=burnfree ~/iso-images/fedora-16.iso

sao is session at once (no multi-sessions), this is default option during burning an ISO image. also burnfree turns on the buffer underrun technology.


for more info, visit the man page,

man wodim
