I have been getting that error message on and off for some time (years) now. The CD comes out ok, though, so I think it is failing after the fixate process is complete. Without a filesystem, you can still get your file back with "dd if=/dev/acd0 of=newfilename.txt bs=2048" where of course newfilename.txt can be whatever you want the new copy to be called. The other issues raised by your post (no filesystem, other software) have been addressed by others, but fwiw I use mkisofs to build the filesystem, and then burncd to burn it to the cd. For storing data on DVDs, growisofs is much more convenient, install it as part of sysutils/dvd+rw-tools. -- Bob Johnson fbsdli...@gmail.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
