What do you use for burning CDs under Linux?

Xfburn doesn't seem to even know about the existence of 25-minute mini-CDs. Brasero behaves very erratically ― it'll burn one copy, then when I put an identical blank in for the next copy, tell me it isn't large enough!


This seems like a good idea, but now I have to make it work.

$ sudo wodim --devices
wodim: No such file or directory.
Cannot open SCSI driver!
For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
the wodim documentation.

Even with /dev/cdrom specified in /etc/wodim.conf, creating a symbolic link /dev/scd0 -> /dev/sr0 is required.

What next‽

@publius typically, the device auto detection works for me. wodim is a fork of cdrecord which contains a goulash of old device interfaces/drivers and odd command-line arguments/options. I usually use a command in the form of:

wodim -v driveropts=burnfree speed=1 some_image_name.iso

I have a default Debian /etc/wodim.conf and related /dev files.
