Preparing a DVD+RW Disc for writing
Hi there, first timer here, linux noob, etc, etc...
I'm trying to mount an external DVD +RW Drive so I can burn a directory from my Linux Server to disk.
I think I've figured out how to mount the drive, but it only works when there's a disk with data in the drive. When I enter
mount /dev/scd1 /mnt
I'm able to read from the drive, no problem. When I try to do the same thing, however, with a blank disk I get the following message:
"mount: you must specify a filesystem type"
So I'm assuming I need to prepare the disk somehow. I've verified that the dvd+rw-tools package is installed on the RH server but I'm not sure what the next step is. Can anyone help?
