(Merge multiple pages CD/DVD: reply -All the changes have been done-)
(merge complete, open discussions moved to target, redirect like main article)

I'm suggesting there should be a 'CD Burning' page where (1.) Commandline burning is explained and (2.) Burning with a GUI. CD Burning is a more unified title than this page. --[[User:Marco`]]
#REDIRECT [[Talk:Optical Disc Drive]]
I have begun to merge this page into the [[CD Burning]] page --[[User:Marco`]]
== special burning options ? ==
Have think about burning following CD :
-bootable CD
-contains audio track ( for CD player ) , any position is OK
Is such CD ( technically ) possible to burn ?
== Burning files/directories throught genisoimage ==
make the .iso file:
# genisoimage -r -J -o cd_image.iso /directory
The -r and -J ensures long file names work for Unix (using Rock Ridge) and Windows (using Joliet extensions) respectively.
== Merge multiple pages CD/DVD ==
I've seen that there are a few Pages that describe CD / DVD burning tools. I ask myself "why?".
*[[CD Burning]]
*[[DVD Burning]]
*[[DVD Playing]]
*[[DVD Ripping]]
*[[Video2dvdiso]] one page for a single script (????)
This pages describe "how to use" the same device. Nowadays there are only devices that burning them both cd/dvd.
I think we need to merge all the pages in a single.
In this way it is easier consultation by the users, because everyone would like to know how to exploit and operate your device to play, burning and ripping cd/dvd without having to navigate through multiple pages for a single device. Also the page of 'DVD burning' are not mentioned programs to burn, rightly cited the page burinig CD ..... this indicates that do not make sense multiple page for a single device, I want to know how to use my dvd burner? I have to navigate through multiple pages, if only to know what programs to use.[[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] ([[User talk:Veleno77|talk]]) 08:18, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
:Ah well it sounds like a good plan to me :) It also sounds like a big job though: if you think you can do it, go for it! Just make sure to do many little edits (not just a few big ones) and document all of them using the edit summary. If you're not doing the merge, instead, you can request it by adding [[Template:Merge]] to those articles. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 13:52, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
::Yes ! It's a big job! mmm I can try to do a single page in my personal page, just to example, and add a template "merge" in all pages that link in this discussion. So all users will be made aware and can participate if they want, while I begin to do a draft.[[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] ([[User talk:Veleno77|talk]]) 10:12, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
::: Well, i've created an example for this merging  in my personal page https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/User:Veleno77 . This merging consist in a few step.
:::# Create a new page with title " Optical disc drive "
:::# In this page, simply merging [[CD Burning]] , [[DVD Burning]] , [[DVD Playing]] , [[DVD Ripping]] and related troubleshooting.
:::# In the section "See also" add a link to  [[Convert any Movie to DVD Video]], because this is the real related page.
:::# The page [[Video2dvdiso]] is a page for a single script related to [[Convert any Movie to DVD Video]], and I think must be included in it.
:::Now I'm waiting for your views. [[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] ([[User talk:Veleno77|talk]]) 22:25, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
::::Good job, I like your draft, I'd just like to ask you to wait a few days before putting it into practice, let's say until this weekend, so we'll see if there are any users against the merge. That said, note the title of the page will have to be capitalized as per [[Help:Editing#Creating pages]] (I know it's a [[Help_talk:Style#Title_case|very hidden rule]]), and to make it a very good job you could try to perform the merge in multiple edits, not only a single big one, for example:
::::# Create [[Optical Disc Drive]]
::::# Merge [[CD Burning]] as it is (without changes)
::::# Adjust the section tree as in your draft
::::# Merge [[DVD Burning]] as it is (without changes)
::::# Adjust the section tree as in your draft
::::# Merge [[DVD Playing]] as it is (without changes)
::::# Adjust the section tree as in your draft
::::# Merge [[DVD Ripping]] as it is (without changes)
::::# Adjust the section tree as in your draft
::::# Merge the Troubleshooting sections
::::# Add any relevant links to the See also section
::::Then redirect the 4 merged articles to the correct sections in [[Optical Disc Drive]].
::::Finally yeah, I'd say [[Video2dvdiso]] can be merged into [[Convert any Movie to DVD Video]].

:::::Thank you for all your support and for your explanations. Unfortunately I am new to this method of "merging". I welcome all your suggestions and I hope to do things in a clear way, and not to make mistakes. I'll wait a few days and then I will get to work.[[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] ([[User talk:Veleno77|talk]]) 21:43, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
::::::OK! All the changes have been done. I did well to create redirects to the sections? Or should I point them to the main page?[[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] ([[User talk:Veleno77|talk]]) 18:14, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
