    Why not use a gui utility like K3B?

    Try something like this with cdrecord:

    Code:
    cdrecord -v dev=/dev/hdd speed=8 filename.iso
    of course, changing the device to your own device and the speed as desired

    Oops, just noticed you are looking to burn dvd and I posted for cd. I have no experience with cdrecord and dvd so can't really help with that. Sorry.

    No.. this also does not seems to be working..

    TOC Type: 1 = CD-ROM
    scsidev: '/dev/hdd'
    devname: '/dev/hdd'
    scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
    Warning: Open by 'devname' is unintentional and not supported.
    cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/hdd'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
    cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'.
    cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

    Did you make sure you choose the right devices? It is unlikely that /dev/hdd is your CDROM device...

    Try this to find out your CDROM device :
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i cd | grep -i rom

    niru52,

    seems to me that you do not have sufficient permissions to burn.Are you doing it as root?
