    CDRECORD ever works???

    I have tried many times to burn an iso image but it was impossible with cdrecord.
    Why is it so difficult to perform so simple operation as cd burning???
    Should people spend days to make this lame programme running properly???

    cdrecord -v -eject dev=ATA:0,0,0 FC4-i386-disc1.iso
    cdrecord: No write mode specified.
    cdrecord: Asuming -tao mode.
    cdrecord: Future versions of cdrecord may have different drive dependent defaults.

    you might want to try setting speed to option to something other than default max like 2 or 4 especially for burning an ISO which needs to be fully intact to work property and is a large chunk of file to written at once.

    besides that I'm not seeing any other errors: I'm not sure about your ATA option though I don't use it but I don't know what it is either? Not that it isn't correct I just don't use it but I have an external burner through USB.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
