Burn a bin-file with cdrdao

Ok, nobody likes to RTFM very much, so I'll try to keep it as shortas possible, first some URLs

You need at least cdrdao, cygwin1.dll and a working Adaptec ASPI.If you have EAC or Feurio running, you most probably already havea working ASPI, Nero unfortunately has it's own (proprietary) ASPIhidden in it's directories, this will not work with other applications.However: if you do install the Adaptec ASPI, Nero will be happy withit, because it only uses it's own, regardless what's installed onyour system.

Although you might not have an SCSI burner, you still need to figureout the "SCSI-ID" of your device, you can do that by

cdrecord -scanbus

or look at the numbers e.g. Feurio displays after selecting your device.cdrecord might display something like that (this is my machine):

Cdrecord 1.10 (i686-pc-cygwin) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 Jörg SchillingUsing libscg version 'schily-0.5'scsibus0:
0,0,0 0) 'IBM ' 'DDYS-T18350N ' 'S93E'
0,1,0 1) *
0,2,0 2) *
0,3,0 3) 'TOSHIBA ' 'DVD-ROM SD-M1401' '1008' Removable CD-ROM
0,4,0 4) *
0,5,0 5) 'PLEXTOR ' 'CD-R PX-W124TS' '1.07' Removable CD-ROM
0,6,0 6) *

So my CD-burner has 0,5,0 as device-id, yours might differ. Now you createan SVCD-image with vcdimager, something like:

vcdimager -t svcd //d/MyDirectory/MyMPEGFile.mpg

and end up with videocd.bin and videocd.cue, burn that with cdrdao:

cdrdao write -v 2 --speed 12 --device 0,5,0 --eject videocd.cue

Yes, it is that simple ;-)

There's a catch however: cdrdao burns only DAO (hence the name) yourburner might not be supported, because not all burners are capable ofDAO :-(

Hopefully this will get you started.
