PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT CONDONE THE USE OF THESE TOOLS AND THE INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE FOR THE PURPOSES OF PIRACY. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MAKING A BACKUP CD FOR PERSONAL USE AND MAKING A COPY OF A CD FOR SOMEONE ELSE: ONE IS ALLOWED, THE OTHER IS ILLEGAL  - unless, of course, you're copying Free Software :)

This howto has increased in size considerably since its inception. There's more information to present, my own knowledge of what's available has also increased since the first version. Consequently, this page has now grown to about 80 kilobytes in size, which is relatively large for a web page. I have therefore decided to split it up into individual sections which are easier to read and navigate.

1) The software you'll be using
2) The hardware interface
    USB particularities
    IDE particularities
3) Linux kernel configuration
4) Locating your (re)writer
5) Preparing a data CD
6) "Previewing" the CD
7) Burning the CD
8) Multisession CD-ROMs
    Building a multisession image
    Combining the TOC of an existing session with the new TOC
    Special considerations for burning multisession CD-ROMs
9) If you're running low on disk space...
10) Using audio tracks
    Extracting audio data from a CDDA
    Burning the audio tracks to the CD
    Track At Once or Disc At Once
11) Mixing audio and data on a CD
    Data in track 1
    CD-Extra
12) Notes for FreeBSD users
13) Blanking a CD-RW
