Hack 44 doesn't work in all circonstancies and (especially old) all CD writers. Hack 44 example is as follow: cdrecord dd=if/dev/cdrom | cdrecord -v speed=12 dev=0,0,0 fs=8m -data - Unfortunately it seem that the piping of dd into cdrecord didn't work on my old cd writer. An improvement which I found worked better and with all CD writers is as follow: cdrecord -v speed=12 dev=0,0,0 -isosize fs=8m /dev/cdrom 1) It appear to work with all cd writers 2) unlike with the original hack 44, it causes cdrecord to display the proper CD source total MB size instead of just 0 MB I can't take credit 4 it as I saw it on http://www.cpqlinux.com/cdrw.html#CD2CD
