|-d || burn the CD-R/RW in DAO (disk at once) mode. |
|-e || eject the medium when done. |
|-f device || set the device to use for the burning process. |
|-F || force operation regardless of warnings. |
|-l || read a list of image files from filename. |
|-m || close disk in multisession mode (otherwise disk is closed as singlesession). |
|-n || do not write gaps between data tracks in DAO mode. |
|-p || use preemphasis on audio tracks. |
|-q || quiet, do not print progress messages. |
|-s speed || set the speed of the burner device. Defaults to 4. Specify "max" to use the drives fastest speed. |
|-t || test write, do not actually write on the media. |
|-v || verbose, print extra progress messages. |
| msinfo || Show the first LBA of the last track on the media and the next writeable address on the media for use with the mkisofs 8 s(ports/sysutils/cdrtools) -C switch when adding additional data to ISO file systems with extra sessions. |
| blank || Blank a CD-RW medium. This uses the fast blanking method, so data are not physically overwritten, only those areas that make the media appear blank for further usage are erased. |
| eject || Eject the medium when done. This is equivalent to the -e option. |
| erase || Erase a CD-RW medium. This erases the entire media. Can take up to 1 hour to finish. |
| format Brq dvd+rw | dvd-rw |
| || Formats a DVD+RW or DVD-RW media to the default max size and 2048 byte blocks. This operation can take a long time to finish. Progress reporting is done during the process. |
| fixate || Fixate the medium so that the TOC is generated and the media can be used in an ordinary CD drive. The driver defaults to creating singlesession media (see -m option). Ignored in DAO mode (see -d option). |
| raw | audio || Set the write mode to produce audio (raw mode) tracks for the following images on the command line. |
| data | mode1 || Set the write mode to produce data (mode1) tracks for the following image files on the command line. |
| mode2 || Set the write mode to produce data (mode2) tracks for the following image files on the command line. |
| XAmode1 || Set the write mode to produce data (XAmode1) tracks for the following image files on the command line. |
| XAmode2 || Set the write mode to produce data (XAmode2) tracks for the following image files on the command line. |
| vcd || Set the write mode to produce VCD/SVCD tracks for the following image files on the command line. This automatically sets DAO (-d) and ""no gaps"" (-n) modes. |
| dvdrw || Set the write mode to write a DVD+RW from the following image. DVDs only have one track. |
| file || All other arguments are treated as filenames of images to write to the media, or in case the -l option is used as files containing lists of images. |
The typical usage for burning a data CD-R:
"burncd -f /dev/acd0 data file1 fixate"
The typical usage for burning an audio CD-R:
"burncd -f /dev/acd0 audio file1 file2 file3 fixate"
The typical usage for burning an audio CD-R in DAO mode:
"burncd -f /dev/acd0 -d audio file1 file2 file3"
The typical usage for burning a mixed mode CD-R:
"burncd -f /dev/acd0 data file1 audio file2 file3 fixate"
The typical usage for burning from a compressed image file on stdin:
"gunzip -c file.iso.gz | burncd -f /dev/acd0 data - fixate"
In the examples above, the files burned to data CD-Rs are assumed to be ISO9660 file systems. mkisofs(8), available in the
.Fx Ports Collection, as part of the sysutils/cdrtools port, is commonly used to create ISO9660 file system images from a given directory tree.
The burncd utility appeared in
.Fx 4.0 .
The burncd utility and this manpage was contributed by
.An Sren Schmidt , Denmark <sos@FreeBSD.org>.
