Writing CD-ROMs consists of two steps under Linux: packaging the desired data (files, music or both) into files with special formats; writing the data from the files to the CD-R with the utility cdrecord; This chapter describes the steps for data and audio CDs in greater detail. 3.1 Writing CD-ROMs (pure data) Note that collecting the data to put onto a CD usually takes longer than one expects.
Write files to a CD or DVD You can put files onto a blank disc by using a disc burning application, such as Brasero. If the disc wasn’t burned properly Sometimes the computer doesn’t record the data correctly, and you won’t be able to see the files you put onto the disc when you insert it into a computer.
A CD-R disc needs to allow the drive to write data onto the disc. For a CD-R disk to work, there must be a way for a laser to create a non-reflective area on the disc. A CD-R disc therefore has an extra layer that the laser can modify. This extra layer is a greenish dye. In a normal CD, you have a plastic substrate covered with a reflective aluminum or gold layer. In a CD-R, you have a plastic.Just copying files to a CD will not work because the CD will need a master boot record and other hidden Startup operating system files. Instead, the preferred method is to create a single file, an image of a bootable CD, called an ISO image. Most CD-ROM burning applications recognize this type of image file. Once the ISO file is burned as an image, then the new CD is a clone of the original.To create a writeable CD (CD-R), you need to modify the surface of a CD so you can burn data onto it, turning it into a CD-R. There are no bumps on a CD-R. A clear dye layer covers the CD's mirror. A write laser heats up the dye layer enough to make it opaque. The read laser in a CD player senses the difference between clear dye and opaque dye the same way it senses bumps -- it picks up on the.
Usually these are higher-priced CD-R’s from a specific brand. (Though a higher price is not always an indicator of quality, there are many CD-Rs on the recommended list to be had for low prices.) It is important to note that in general these are no better than a typical CD-R from the recommended brands. But following the rule we started out with, if you can secure a small variety of discs to.Read More

There are several different labeling methods available for CD-R and CD-RW discs ranging from hand writing, to adhesive labels, specialized devices that print directly onto the disc surface and ultimately the various commercial printing solutions. Each option is distinguished by cost, speed and convenience as well as by durability and the visual quality of the result. But keep in mind that.Read More
Overburning (sometimes called oversizing) is the ability to write beyond the manufacturer’s declared capacity on a CD-R or CD-RW disc. This is accomplished by using the disc’s Lead-Out Area (reserved to indicate to a reading device that the end of the data has been reached) to store the additional user information. Although some recorders and premastering software packages have the ability.Read More
CD-R(W) only Audio discs cannot be burned to DVD or Blu-Ray, which is by design. To create such a compilation select Audio Disc, from the startup screen. This compilation window is different from the one for data compilations, to accommodate information for the audio tracks. Note that the only structure allowed on audio discs is the order of the tracks (you cannot have folders on audio discs.Read More
After inserting a blank CD-R, the burn process will write to the CD. When finished, you will get the completion message: NOTE: These instructions are written for the purpose of making a backup of a CD for personal use only. You should be aware that infringing copyrights is illegal, and in most cases, CD’s are not to be copied. Some authors do allow you to make a backup copy for personal use.Read More

A CD-R doesn't have the same bumps and lands as a conventional CD. Instead, the disc has a dye layer underneath a smooth, reflective surface. On a blank CD-R disc, the dye layer is completely translucent, so all light reflects. The write laser darkens the spots where the bumps would be in a conventional CD, forming non-reflecting areas. By selectively darkening particular points along the CD.Read More
