BURNCD(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		     BURNCD(8)

NAME
     burncd -- control the ATAPI CD-R/RW driver

SYNOPSIS
     burncd [-delmnpqtv] [-f device] [-s speed]	[command] [command file	...]

DESCRIPTION
     The burncd	utility	is used	to burn	CD-R/RW	media using the	ATAPI cd
     driver.

     Available options and operands:

     -d		   burn	the CD-R/RW in DAO (disk at once) mode.

     -e		   eject the media when	done.

     -f	device	   set the device to use for the burning process.

     -F		   force operation regardless of warnings.

     -l		   read	a list of image	files from filename.

     -m		   close disk in multisession mode (otherwise disk is closed
		   as singlesession).

     -n		   do not write	gaps between data tracks in DAO	mode.

     -p		   use preemphasis on audio tracks.

     -q		   quiet, do not print progress	messages.

     -s	speed	   set the speed of the	burner device.	Defaults to 4.	Spec-
		   ify ``max'' to use the drive's fastest speed.

     -t		   test	write, do not actually write on	the media.

     -v		   verbose, print extra	progress messages.

     command may be one	of:

     msinfo	   Show	the first LBA of the last track	on the media and the
		   next	writeable address on the media for use with the
		   mkisofs(8)'s	-C switch when adding additional data to ISO
		   file	systems	with extra sessions.

     blank	   Blank a CD-RW medium.  This uses the	fast blanking method,
		   so data are not physically overwritten, only	those areas
		   that	make the media appear blank for	further	usage are
		   erased.

     erase	   Erase a CD-RW medium.  This erases the entire media.	 Can
		   take	up to 1	hour to	finish.

     format {dvd+rw | dvd-rw}
		   Formats a DVD+RW or DVD-RW media to the default max size
		   and 2048 byte blocks.  This operation can take a long time
		   to finish.  Progress	reporting is done during the process.

     fixate	   Fixate the medium so	that the TOC is	generated and the
		   media can be	used in	an ordinary CD drive.  The driver
		   defaults to creating	singlesession media (see -m option).
		   Should be the last command to burncd	as the program exits
		   when	this has been done.  Ignored in	DAO mode (see -d
		   option).

     raw | audio   Set the write mode to produce audio (raw mode) tracks for
		   the following images	on the command line.

     data | mode1  Set the write mode to produce data (mode1) tracks for the
		   following image files on the	command	line.

     mode2	   Set the write mode to produce data (mode2) tracks for the
		   following image files on the	command	line.

     XAmode1	   Set the write mode to produce data (XAmode1)	tracks for the
		   following image files on the	command	line.

     XAmode2	   Set the write mode to produce data (XAmode2)	tracks for the
		   following image files on the	command	line.

     vcd	   Set the write mode to produce VCD/SVCD tracks for the fol-
		   lowing image	files on the command line.  This automatically
		   sets	DAO (-d) and ``no gaps'' (-n) modes.

     dvdrw	   Set the write mode to write a DVD+RW	from the following
		   image.  DVDs	only have one track.

     file	   All other arguments are treated as filenames	of images to
		   write to the	media, or in case the -l option	is used	as
		   files containing lists of images.

     Files whose length	are not	a multiple of the current media	blocksize are
     quietly zero padded to fit	the blocksize requirement.  The	conventional
     filename -	refers to stdin, and can only be used once.

EXAMPLES
     The typical usage for burning a data CD-R:

	   burncd -f /dev/acd0 data file1 fixate

     The typical usage for burning an audio CD-R:

	   burncd -f /dev/acd0 audio file1 file2 file3 fixate

     The typical usage for burning an audio CD-R in DAO	mode:

	   burncd -f /dev/acd0 -d audio	file1 file2 file3

     The typical usage for burning a mixed mode	CD-R:

	   burncd -f /dev/acd0 data file1 audio	file2 file3 fixate

     The typical usage for burning from	a compressed image file	on stdin:

	   gunzip -c file.iso.gz | burncd -f /dev/acd0 data - fixate

     In	the examples above, the	files burned to	data CD-Rs are assumed to be
     ISO9660 file systems.  mkisofs(8),	available in the FreeBSD Ports Collec-
     tion, as part of the sysutils/cdrtools port, is commonly used to create
     ISO9660 file system images	from a given directory tree.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variables affect	the execution of burncd:

     CDROM  The	CD device to use if one	is not specified with the -f flag.

BUGS
     Probably, please report when found.

HISTORY
     The burncd	utility	appeared in FreeBSD 4.0.
