Burn A Cd

To burn a cd you use the command cdrecord. First find out the bus with the following command:

cdrecord -scanbus
        4,0,0   400) *
        4,1,0   401) 'PLEXTOR ' 'DVDR   PX-760A  ' '1.06' Removable CD-ROM
        4,2,0   402) *
        4,3,0   403) *
        4,4,0   404) *
        4,5,0   405) *
        4,6,0   406) *
        4,7,0   407) *

After that go into the directory where the iso is located and give the following command
cdrecord -v -pad speed=1 dev=4,1,0 src.iso

Then it will burn the cd and outputs:
wodim: No write mode specified.
wodim: Asuming -tao mode.
wodim: Future versions of wodim may have different drive dependent defaults.

WARNING: the deprecated pseudo SCSI syntax found as device specification.
Support for that may cease in the future versions of wodim. For now,
the device will be mapped to a block device file where possible.
