Shell: burn at the command line

Recently I've had to burn an iso. So far I have always entrusted to k3b the brazier. I wanted to change right now, because brasero do not let me delete the disk (speaks of imaginary plugin), mentre k3b using the kde libraries (I do not want to load into my Gnome). The only alternative (perhaps not the only, but the one I most accredited) is the use of command line.

My dvd is a rewritable already used. First we have unmount the disk, know how it is called the burner and delete the contents the same disk:

umount / media / nomedisco
 "name" the recorder

Now masterizziamo the image discharged by switching to cdrecord as parameters the writing speed (varies depending on the burner), the "name" the recorder (the same as before), thepicture to burn:

cdrecord-v speed = 6 dev = '/ dev/scd0'-data / path / to / image.iso

When burning one can observe the progression of the transferred data. At the end we get a line like this:

wodim: fifo had 19215 puts and 19215 gets.

If the numbers match, it means that the dui 'entire contents image was transferred on the disc successfully.
