,I am new to using SUSE linux 9.0 I am having difficulty in copying files from a directory onto a CDROM using UNIX commands.

So far I have been able to mount the CDROM and view the files on the CDROM. When I try to copy files onto the CDROM, they are stored in the directory /media/cdrom and not on the CDROM.

The commands I have been using are as follows :-

mount -o rw -f dev/cdrom

cp -R Tadburn (directory) /media/cdrom

When I type in the following command :-

more /etc/fstab

dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,auto,user,exec

dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,auto,user,exec

Any help to resolve my problem would be much appreciated.

You can not just copy files onto a CD-ROM.

You will have to use some sort of burning program to write the files onto the CD. K3b is one of the best and what I would recomend. Install that they it works just like Nero or any other burning program.
