I have an HP CD-Writer+ 8290 external CD burner connected to the computer through USB.
How do I burn CDs in Damn Small Linux?
Am I supposed to mount the external CD burner (cdrom1)? DSL won't mount the external CD burner UNLESS I have a CD with files in it. If the CD does not contain files, I get the error message "Error: mount: you must specify the filesystem type".
If I am supposed to mount cdrom1, how do I get around the error message? If I'm not supposed to mount cdrom1, what am I supposed to do instead to get the computer to recognize the external CD burner?
Exactly what configurations do I need in the CD burn application CDW? There are so many different things that I don't know where to begin. I know that I have to specify the scsi device number (1,0,0 based on the cdrecord -scanbus output).
Using the cdrecord -scanbus command yields the following output:
1,0,0 100) 'HP ' 'CD-Writer+ 8290 ' '1.3C' Removable CD-ROM
