It keeps on saying something about how some SCPI (or something) or it does not have access to my cd drive.
(under a CD burning program)
But I can mount fine.

*cries* I really want to make a resmastered CD before I leave tomarow.

For what it's worth, I had lots of trouble using Gcombust. I switched to using Xcdroast and have since had no problems with burning disks. Available via Pupget. It's a little less than intuitive to use unfortunately. To burn an ISO with it go into setup and look under HD settings, take note of the "Temporary Image Storage Directories" as you need to put your ISO image in this directory(or change it to point to where the ISO Iis already at). Then leave setup and go straight to "Create CD" and then "Write Tracks". You can skip "Master Tracks" because the ISO image is already mastered. There will be two small windows with your image on the right. Click on your image and then click "add". Click the tab that says "Write Tracks" and finally click the button at the bottom that says "Write Tracks". Should work.

Incidentally, if this is the first time you've tried to burn anything you'll have to run the CD/DVD drive wizard from the main menu. Make sure it points to the correct drives for all three categories, then click on "Save SCI Emulation". It will save the settings and reboot the computer, after which you "should" be good to go. It actually sounds like this might be where your problem lies, now that I think of it.

Hope this helps. Hope I'm not telling you what you already know.

Cool

I have placed that info here:
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/BurningLinuxIsoBasics

and added slight tweaks

To remind people: Puppy uses compressed data. It is worth burning at slow speed - I always burn at x2 - (OK that is the max speed of my burner but even so, If you have problems burn at slow speed)

One of the things I use (because it works, is BurnCDcc from Windows)
My Windows HD is not connected to the Internet and I can not bear the thought of connecting it (Pup takes 3 click)
Windows is likely to take several hours of driver hunting and all sorts, so I am keen to get a clear way of burning from Puppy and this may be the option (I tried Gcombuster last time and it did not work for me)

m m m . . . which reminds me there is a simple way of burning ISO from the command line in one distro (which I used successfully) Does Puppy have that option and do we have a wizard?

m m m . . . that would be kewl . . .

For burning an iso to a cdrom I find cdrecord by far the easiet to use.

Code:
#cdrecord -scanbus


This will show the devices connected to your system. The SCSI address of each device is the three numbers in the left most column, say 0,3,0.Now you can burn a CD with.
Code:
#cdrecord dev=0,3,0 -v /path/to/image.iso


I find this method alot easier for burning a simple iso rather than the confusing GUIs.


One word, it is alot more helpful if you are more accurate in reporting errors regarding commands.....A little bit of time on your part is not too much to ask is it ?

Yes flamesarge, did you run the CD Wizard and turn on scsi emulation?
Using Gcombust should be real easy, it is for me. If scsi emulation turned on, clicking the "Detect scsi drive" then "Check scsi settings" should detect the scsi drive and a little window will popup with "OK" button.
-- I think there is a page on Gcombust in the Wiki.

The instructions are outdated ...

The Detect buttons in gcombust! do not work -- such is noted in the pop-up window when it is opened.

The cdrecord settings are also incorrect as they specify 0,0,0 and gcombust! says there is no drive there.

Am going to try xcdroast.

Hi,

I just did the following, and was successful getting the 1.0.5rc1 iso to burn to a new disk, using Chubby Puppy 1.0.4.

Dewdrop

Step by Step for testing Gcombust in Chubby Puppy 1.0.4

1.Went to Wizard Wizard and clicked on setup CDROM and CD burner drives.
2.Chose the default burner and clicked on scsi_emul to turn it on. Puppy re-booted as it stated it would.
3.After re-boot, I went to Menu/Multimedia/Gcombust CD writer, clicked on it and the Gcombust window opened.
4.Under the Options tab, I left the default choices.
5.Under Burn tab,
a.I selected Data Source, and clicked on the selection that allowed me to indicate where the iso was located that I wanted to burn.
b.Under Multi Session – made no choices.
c.Under Misc Options I deselected dummy test.
d.Under CD-recorder device options I selected detect SCSI drive button and then clicked on the Check SCSI settings – a new window opened indicating that my settings were ok.
e.Under the CD-RW area, I didn't select anything.

6.I clicked on the Combust button and the writing process began. I was trying to burn the 1.0.5rc1 test version that Barry uploaded yesterday, and the burn operation was a success.

I was able to use the disk to start Puppy 1.0.5rc1 from the CD drive.

Hope this is helpful!!! Smile

Had to also select overburn and Burnproof to get it to run on my drive.

Loaded up beautifully on my IBM 600X ... nice, very nice!

Edoc, the wiki can be edited by anyone. Feel up to it? Smile
