in reply to OT: minicpan CDROM case sensitivity problem

If I remember correctly mkisofs -J makes a Joliet compatable CD on Linux. Think that should be what you need. If you use a GUI to burn the CD you will have to see if you can pass parameters when you make the iso.

To create the CD on the command line you will want somthing like this ...

* Creating an iso image mkisofs -J -o cd_image.iso /dir/to/burn/as/root * Find you CD device cdrecord --scanbus * Burning iso image (use dev = found with scanbus) cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 speed=4 -data cd_image.iso * Burning data on the fly mkisofs -J /dir/to/burn/as/root | cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 speed=4 + -data -
have a look at man mkisofs and man cdrecord

    Thanks, Random_Walk

    I will certainly have a go when I get home. To date, I've been using k3b, and not grappled with the command line CD burning utilities. I'll need to grok the man pages to understand what other command options I need.

    update: success!

    I found the right combination of Joliet and Rock-ridge to allow deep directory nesting and get the casing sorted out for Windows. Having saved the iso image, I was able to use k3b to burn a CD from this. Then I determined the cdrecord command from this and was able to burn another CD.
