What is it
cdrecord is a program that enables you to record CDROMs. It comes with a number of utility programs to construct ISO9660 filesystem images which you can then burn to CD with cdrecord and also a program to extract audio data from your music CDs in preparation for making your own compilations etc.

You will need to own a compatible CD-R or CD-RW drive, these are listed on the website. Also documented there is instructions on using the programs and a full complement of CD recording material. For further information visit the cdrecord web site. You might have timeouts accessing the site. Keep trying.
.
Once you've installed the cdrecord program you will need to install a special SCSI driver from the author to access the SCSI subsystem. Also, there is a driver to allow you to test mount a CD image before you burn it. See the README files at:
