View Full Version : Burner detection etc. in linux/freebsd

April 21st, 2005, 07:28 PM

I am interested to get information about the following:

* supported burner modes (tao,sao,dao etc.) without the use of cdrecord
* supported burner speeds (1x,2x etc) without the use of cdrecord
* detection of the current medium in the drive (CD-R,DVD-R,DVD-RW etc.)

Could anybody give me some pointers to that?

I find that this is badly documented in linux/freebsd.

Something like this should be in a library so people could stop duplicating the work done by others.

"apt-cache search burn" will name a few libraries
