Is there a way to initiate a quick/full erase of a disc from the command line?


I looked through the readme.txt file for command line options that would appear to be for this task but came up empty handed unfortunately.  The closest thing I could find was an option that tells imgburn to automatically erase first when overwriting a previously used disc, but in my case I'm not actually burning an ISO or anything--just clearing the disc.


Perhaps it is something that could be exposed as a command line option in the future if not currently possible?

Sorry, no.

Unless 'Erase' gets its own 'Mode', I don't see it becoming a standalone feature you can control via CLI.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

It doesn't really need its own mode per se.  Any of the write modes would work.
