Burning CD/DVD in solaris
It is little painful to burn a CD/DVD in Solaris.
I don’t know too many applications which can be used to burn DVDs in solaris environment
Even if it is available I am not sure how user friendly it will be
But I discovered that we can burn CD/DVDs easily with few commands
It works and found it little faster than burning DVDs on any application in Windows
Here is what I did
1) Copy all the files you want to burn in a directory
In this case I have moved the files to directory video
2) Make an iso image out of it.
bash-3.00#mkisofs -J -R -o /export/test.iso ./video
3) Test if the iso image works fine by mounting it
bash-3.00# lofiadm -a /export/test.iso
bash-3.00# mount -F hsfs /dev/lofi/1 /mnt
bash-3.00# cd /mnt
4) Now insert the media in the drive and burn the cd/dvd.
bash-3.00# cdrw -i /export/test.iso
