hi, i have just registered to ask this question. i would like to run a test and i would like to burn an iso... but without lead-in/out and for the disc not to be finalised. i have searched the internet and the closest thing was cdrecord under linux.
in this program it shows under verbose mode the CDB commands going to the dvd writer. i seen something about write reserve track and opc this is the time when it is burning the lead-in/out and then shows "write g1" and sends a block of data. it also shows me the block of hex code and the data sending.
i have seen this because i have modded my lite-on usb etau108 so the lid remains open and can see the laser move. the best i have come up with is to swap the disc at the time of writing the data. but this is innacurate as some sectors are on the 1st with lead in.
i also have another idea is to write a batch file in linux. so that i can write the data onto another disc using the swap but have a pause to give me enough time to swap. but i am not so good at programming.
1 use split of raw data of iso to 2048bytes
2 use cdb commands to initialise the drive for burning
3 send the reserve track lead-in and get opc and
4 then wait sending ready command repeatedly to burner or pause
5 swap disk and then burn 100% of the data. using sg3_utils in a batch file from the 2048 segments from the split command above.
it seems the only way to do what i want to test is to learn about how burning software works maybe i dont have to write a lead-in/out atall.
lastly can this be done in imgburn atall?
