So I'm trying to burn daily data backups to a dvd+rw in FreeBSD 5.1 and I'm having no end of problems. The dvd drive is a Memorex IDE internal which is brand new. I've googled until my fingers were cramped and everyone seems to say "Here's a bunch of extra stuff you have to do for 4.x <insert kernel patching and configuring here>. For 5.x you should just be able to do: # burncd -f /dev/acd0c -F format dvd+rw # burncd -f /dev/acd0c -s max dvdrw file.iso "
Well I can get that format command to work just fine. When I try it, I get the following: # burncd -f /dev/acd0c -F format dvd+rw formatting with blocks=2295104 type=0x26 param=0 formatting DVD - 100 % done So I know that I can talk to the writer and give it commands. I try the next command and all I get is "No soup for you!" like so: # burncd -f /dev/acd0c -s max dvdrw bkuptest.iso next writeable LBA 0 writing from file bkuptest.iso size 942976 KB written this track 1568 KB (0%) total 1568 KB only wrote -1 of 32768 bytes: Device busy Just so you know, I have tried the above command with -s set to 1, 4 and without it altogether. I am at a loss. Does anybody have any suggestions about what I need to do to make this work? Is there some other way to burn dvds? Do I need to do some kernel recompilation? I have installed dvd+rw-tools but haven't found any good docs, and there doesn't seem to be a man page. I will gladly RTFM if someone would be willing to point me in the direction of the FM which can help me. Thanks in advance for any help. Chris
