Jump to: navigation, search

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`

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?".

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.Veleno (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. -- Kynikos (talk) 13:52, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
