    • Burn cd/dvd via OMV

      I re-purposed my old desktop and it's working fine with OMV, but... I have there a cd/dvd burner, and I think it could be useful to save some files to a cd with it. Does anyone know if there's a plugin to handle this? I think it could be a killer feature. :)

    • I don't think there is any plans for a plugin but you can do this from command line. You can install the growisofs tool. For example:

      apt-get -y install growisofs

      1.To burn a disk first time i.e. to burn a blank DVD:

      growisofs -Z /dev/sr0 -r -J /path/to/files

      Where /dev/sr0 is the mount point of your disc.

      Example: To burn contents of a folder named backup, type:

      growisofs -Z /dev/sr0 -r -J /home/<user_name>/Desktop/backup

      2. To continue a multisession disc to add more files:

      growisofs -M /dev/sr0 -r -J /path/to/files

      This will add more files to the disc and previous files will also remain on disc.


      genisoimage -r -J -o image_name.iso /path/to/folder

      Example: To create an iso image having name data.iso of a contents of folder backup located on desktop,

      genisoimage -r -J -o data.iso /home/<user_name>/Desktop/backup


      To burn a disc image to DVD like images of operating systems, type:

      growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0=/path/to/iso_file

      Example: To burn image Backup.iso located at Downloads folder of a user, type

      growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0=/home/<user_name>/Downloads/Backup.iso


      To blank a rewritable DVD,

      dvd+rw-format -blank /dev/sr0

      I hope that helps. :)

      How tricky can it be to make it work in OMV? :)

      The program hasn't been updated in seven years. Plus, it is a java app. So, probably will have issues.
