Burn CD/DVD Action

   

 

This action supports burning files direct to CDR/CDRW/DVDR & DVDRW Media (depending on your burner hardware). The files burned directly to the drive, ie an image is not created first. Note that to use this action you need to define an alias for your burner first (see here for more info).

 

cdburnproperties

 

If you are having problems seeing the files on your DVD or CD after burning, then you might have to enable the "Eject after Write" option so that the operating system refreshes the contents of the media.

 

 

The File Selection editor allows you to select files & folders and use wildcards or regular expressions to add files to the selection.

 

cdburnselectfiles

 

In the File spec you can enter a normal DOS type file spec using wild cards * and ?

 

You can also specify a regular expression, but you need to select the "Regular Expression" checkbox.  If you are specifying *.* you should not select regular expression as it is an invalid regular expression.

 

 

Other Options:

 

"Joliet File System"

 

Enables the Joliet extensions to the ISO9660 file system. This allows you to have file names longer than 8.3 characters. In almost all instances, you'll want to leave this option enabled.

 

 

"Close Disc (Finalize)"

 

Enable this option if you don't want to write any further data to the disc.

 

 

"Test Write"

 

Enable this option if you don't want to actually write any data to the disc.

 

 

"Eject after write"

 

Enable this option to eject the disc when writing completes. If you are having problems seeing the files on your DVD or CD after burning, then you might have to enable this option.
