I must have missed burncd being broken for this user. I read the post as coming from someone who understood cdrecord, but had problems learning/using burncd. I'm a FreeBSD newbie also, and didn't even take the time to look at burncd. By enabling the cam driver I'm able to use cdrecord which I'm quite familiar with. Just trying to help :) Jeff _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
