- Umount DVD
- Format DVDRW with
dvd+rw-format -force /dev/hdb
- Burn data into specific directory name with
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hdb -R -J -l -allow-multidot -allow-leading-dots -graft-points "/target_dic_name0=/first_local_directory" "/target_dic_name1=/second_local_directory"
- Burn additional data into /target_director in the DVD
growisofs -dvd-compat -M /dev/hdb -R -J -l -allow-multidot -allow-leading-dots -graft-points "/target_directory=/more_local_directory"
Burn an initial session to the selected device. A special form of this option is
recognized to support burning of pre-mastered images. See EXAMPLES section
for further details.
Merge a new session to an existing one.
Print version information and invoke mkisofs, also with -version option.
Provide maximum media compatibility with DVD-ROM/-Video.
In write-once context (DVD+R and DVD-R) this results in unappendable
recording (closed disk). In DVD+RW context it instructs the logical unit
to explicitly burn [otherwise optional] lead-out.
At dry-run growisofs performs all the steps till, but not including the first write
operation. Most notably check for "overburn" condition is performed, which
implies that mkisofs is invoked and terminated prematurely.
Normally DVD media can accommodate up to approximately 4.700.000.000 bytes
(in marketing speech 4.7GB). In other words a DVD can contain about 4.377 GiB
or 4482 MiB. Growisofs won’t start without this option, if "overburn" condition
appears to be unavoidable.
An option to control recording velocity. Most commonly you’ll use -speed=1 with
"no-name" media, if default speed settings messes up the media. Keep in mind that
N essentially denotes speed closest to N*1385KBps among those offered by
unit for currently mounted media. The list can be found in dvd+rw-mediainfo
Actual device names vary from one operating system to another. We use /dev/dvd as
a collective name or as symbolic link to the actual device if you wish. Under Linux
it will most likely be an ide-scsi device such as "/dev/scd0." Under NetBSD/OpenBSD
it has to be a character SCSI CD-ROM device such as "/dev/rcd0c." Under Solaris
it also has to be a character SCSI/ATAPI CD-ROM device, e.g.
"/vol/dev/aliases/cdrom0." And likewise in HP-UX and IRIX...
To master and burn an ISO9660 volume with Joliet and Rock-Ridge extensions on
growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /some/files
To append more data to same DVD:
growisofs -M /dev/dvd -R -J /more/files
Make sure to use the same options for both initial burning and when appending data.
To finalize the multi-session DVD maintaining maximum compatibility:
growisofs -M /dev/dvd=/dev/zero
To use growisofs to write a pre-mastered ISO-image to a DVD:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=image.iso
where image.iso represents an arbitrary object in the filesystem, such as file,
named pipe or device entry. Nothing is growing here and command name is not
intuitive in this context.
