@ -379,6 +379,25 @@ Speed is counted in DVD units (i.e. 1x = 1,385,000 bytes/second). Currently
there is no difference between -sao and -tao. If ever, then -tao will be the
mode which preserves the current behavior.
For DVD+RW, -msinfo alone would not be enough to perform appending of an ISO
filesystem. The filesystem driver will need a hint to find the start of the
most recent session. For example put an ISO filesystem at address 1 GB:
mkisofs -C 0,524288 ... | \
cdrskin dev=/dev/sr0 -v fs=32m -eject speed=4 write_start_address=524288s -
The superuser may then do:
mount -t iso9660 -o ro,sbsector=524288 /dev/sr0 /mnt
Note: On my linux-2.4.21-215 mount works only with sbsector <= 337920 (660 MB).
To extend a filesystem already existing at address 0
mkisofs -C 0,524288 -M /dev/sr0 ... | cdrskin dev=/dev/sr0 ...
Record the number 524288 for usage as first number with -C at the next
mkisofs -C 524288,1000000 ... | cdrskin write_start_address=1000000s ...
Program growisofs can append to an ISO filesystem on DVD+RW by additionally
manipulating the first session. cdrskin does not want to get involved so deep
into the format of the burned data. Be advised to use growisofs for the
task of maintaining extendable ISO-Filesystems on DVD+RW.
