I've taken a look at this port. Unfortunately, it's REALLY hard to figure out the documentation (which consists of a few Web pages written in very contorted -- almost unreadable -- English). From what I can tell, though, this software is really meant to work with DVD+R, which records a little more than half as fast as DVD-R. I need the speed, and so need to make sure it really works with DVD-R. Also, it looks as if this port runs on top of another utility called "cdrecord", which itself runs on top of an ATAPI-to-SCSI shim. I'm worried that this ziggurat of utilities will not be anywhere near as reliable as a simple utility that goes directly to the ATAPI drive. The code is also GPLed. I'm looking, if at all possible, for an all-BSD solution. Does such exist? The man page for FreeBSD's "burncd" command hints that it can can write DVDs, but doesn't say how. --Brett _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
