cdrtools (formerly cdrecord) creates home-burned CDs with a CDR/CDRW recorder. It works as a burn engine for several applications.

cdrtools supports CD recorders from many different vendors; all SCSI-3/mmc- and ATAPI/mmc-compliant drives should also work.

Supported features include IDE/ATAPI, parallel port, and SCSI drives, audio CDs, data CDs, and mixed CDs, full multi-session support, CDRWs (rewritable), TAO, DAO, RAW, and human-readable error messages.

cdrtools includes remote SCSI support and can access local or remote CD writers.

What's New in This Release:
Linux distributions that do not provide a "HZ" macro in include/sys/param.h are now dealt with.
Automatic ATA was disabled on pre-Linux-2.6 systems.
The new cdrecord option -minfo is now almost complete.
cdrecord -msinfo now prints the right values for "multi-session" (multi-border) DVD-R and DVD+R.
cdrecord -atip output for DVD media was enhanced and updated for DVD+R/DL and HD-DVD.
New mkisofs options -posix-H, -posix-L, and -posix-P implement the -H, -L, and -P options defined by POSIX.1-2001.
The short inline help for mkisofs now prints a short overview of the most important options in 80x24 characters.
